Campers attend 3 different skill activities each day to get advanced instruction in the activity. Campers sign up for these activities on Sunday and Tuesday. They will have the opportunity to attend up to 6 different skill areas during each 1 week session.
The afternoons are devoted to cabin centered activities. The cabins will schedule special activities during these periods. Activities may include climbing, canoe trips, waterslide, swim time, challenging other cabins to a kickball game, hiking, and much more.
All cabin groups (depending on the weather) will go out on an overnight camping trip. The group will leave camp in canoes late afternoon and paddle to a campsite on the lake for the evening. They will cook over a fire, sleep in tents, and enjoy a night in the wilderness. Campouts return to camp prior to morning activities so the campers do not miss out on any of their skill activities.
Campers 13 and older will participate in our Older Camp Program. These older campers will be on a different daily schedule with special activities. Older campers sleep in each day and eat breakfast at 9 am. Older campers will sign up for 2 morning skill areas. After the evening program each night the Older campers will move on to a program designed exclusively for them. Some of the special activities available are night zip line, night swim, campfire and more.
