Resident Camp Activities

Activities at camp are all about trying new things, challenging yourself, and having fun outdoors. We stress camper planning and choice, so kids have a chance to be in control of their week. Each week, campers will get to experience all of the activities that are open to their age group. During a typical week-long session, campers can expect to do each activity at least once, with options to do activities more than once if time and scheduling allow.

 All Ages
