Entering Grade 1-8

The goal of our camp program is to offer a variety of programs for a well-rounded camper! Our schedule of camp programs for children entering grade levels 1-8 offers a variety of learning experiences for our campers. Campers are placed into our summer camp groups based on the grade level they are entering in the fall. During summer camp sessions, activities are planned and geared to each age group including swimming and water activities, boating, kayaking/canoeing, fishing, horsemanship, sports and games, the arts, music, science, and STEAM, nature, ropes course, and teamwork challenges. Special events are scheduled throughout the summer as additional fun for our campers and families. All 50 acres are utilized to provide our well-round, all-encompassing summer camp experience.

💦 Swimming is an essential element of our camp program. Campers will use the full size 5 lane pool with a 4 foot shallow end and 7 foot deep end. Opportunities to develop on personal swimming skills as well as safety skills are provided as age appropriate for each group during each group’s morning swim time. American Red Cross certified lifeguards are always present and supervising swimming activities. For their safety, all campers must participate in morning swim skills and order to participate in afternoon recreational swim so that our water safety team can accurately gauge each child’s comfort and abilities in the water. We do not swim test our campers. We do not use any type of water flotation devices. Personal instructional opportunities are available through private swimming lessons. 
🌲 Merit Program is designed for campers to achieve in areas all around campus as well as personal skills. We use all areas of our campus to provide learning opportunities for campers to explore, achieve, and grow. Campers can work toward obtaining beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels of merit in water activities, sports and athletics, STEAM, animal science, farm and animal care, and wilderness areas during their summer. A merit pow-wow will conclude each day on Friday's where campers will be awarded their merit beads during the ceremony to celebrate campers who complete a merit category as well as character award distribution. It is our goal to promote positive opportunities for campers to take pride in their accomplishments, respect and support each other, and develop on character skills that build a successful camp community.
