Campers are grouped in villages by age and gender and sleep eight to a cabin along with two counselors who maintain a consistent, caring, and attentive presence throughout the day and night. The Camp dining hall is large enough for all campers to eat together family style. The food is delicious and plentiful—no one leaves a meal hungry!
Activities include swimming, paddle boating, canoeing, fishing, arts & crafts, hiking, environmental education, bicycling, dance, group games, talent shows, plays & skits, singing and music, campfire storytelling, cook-outs, environmental education, archery, ropes courses, and creative writing!
Campers make life-long friends, learn self-reliance, and learn more about the natural world and their place in it in a safe, beautiful environment.
