At summer camp, kids are encouraged to unplug, breathe fresh air, sing their hearts out at campfire, make friends, and develop their spirituality in a variety of ways.
Mornings are spent in Cabin Groups trying each camp activity including (but not limited to!) archery, stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing, hiking, arts and crafts. Then in the afternoons, it’s “Campers Choice” to do more of whatever activity they love most.
After dinner, kids will enjoy camp-wide game like Capture the Flag, and we end most evenings with vespers and campfire.
Every day of camp includes supervised time swimming or playing at the waterfront, “BOB” time (“Bodies on Bunks”) and an evening snack in addition to three healthy meals.
Dress-up meals, dance parties and a talent show give kids a chance to explore their creativity and confidence is an encouraging space. So bring your musical instruments or burgeoning talent with you!
Kids will sleep in teepees or cabins based on age group.
Everything at camp is “challenge by choice”. No kid is forced to anything they don’t want to do, but they will be encouraged and supported through whatever is challenging them to try it. For first time campers, this ensures camp is safe and fun. The variety of options means there will be something for everyone to enjoy and even experiment with
