So much to do! Everyday!
There is so much to do everyday! And you get to choose most of your own activities. Campers of all ages are often grouped together which allows you to get to know so many kids.
Our camp is not competitive. You will learn new skills and be proud of the new things you can do. And you do get to play hard. But, we play games for the fun of it. We never let anyone feel left out. And when we have competition, we focus on teamwork, sportsmanship, and making sure everyone has fun.
We have all kinds of great stuff to do:
- paddle boarding
- disc golf
- creative arts (in our 1890's barn)
- challenge ropes course
- climbing wall
- mountain biking
- animal care
- creative writing
- camping skills
- outdoor education and earth stewardship
- natural building
- camp newspaper
- digital photography
- board games
- community service, and, more!
Morning Activity Periods
There are two activity periods in the morning. We call them Project Periods. You will sign up for your preferences in advance and our programs run for 2 or 3 days. That way you can build skills. Most activities are usually available and open to anyone. Sometimes there are age or skill level requirements.
There are so many activities that you can always find something you want to do. We encourage you to try new things, but in the end, you make own choices.
Afternoon Activity Periods
The afternoon, is also split into two periods.
During Third Period, we have one day projects and/or group games. Our campers play many unique and crazy games.
During Fourth Period you choose an activity. We call this time “Organized Free” because counselors are assigned to specific areas while you get to pick what you want to do. During Organized Free, you will always have the option to swim at our beach.
During evening program there is always something exciting. We have carnivals, campfires, and barn dances. Our all-camp Friendship Fire takes place once a week when we gather together and reflect, sing and share.
Everyone participates in all-camp events like Capture the Flag, 4th of July, Kick-Off, The Big Bang, and the Camp Election. Each year, there is always something new and exciting. That’s the way we like it.

Once a week, your cabin group will plan its own day of programming.
This is a day of cabin bonding.
You stay together as a unit all day long. Cabin day plans are a group decision. Cabin groups get very creative with this.
They may use any of the camp equipment, collaborate with other cabins, do a project around camp or plan a cool trip out of camp.
The day begins with a thorough cabin clean-up and cabin inspection done by a member of the camp leadership team. We actually make the inspection fun!
After that, cabin groups enjoy their day, ending with an outdoor meal cooked over a campfire. Under counselor supervision, your cabin group will collect wood, build a cooking fire, prepare food and clean up after the meal is done. It’s the kind of day you’d never have at home!
