OVERNIGHT RESIDENT CAMP

Overnight Resident Camp is designed to allow each camper a safe and fun experience in a beautiful natural setting. Campers are grouped by age and gender in comfortable cabins supervised by two counselors. All cabins have electricity and community bath houses, equipped with private showers. Each day campers have opportunities for structured and unstructured play, skill development, and social bonding with peers. The traditional camp experience includes activities such as campfires, archery, arts & crafts, swimming, boating, climbing, soccer, basketball, drama, low ropes initiatives, and much more. Each day, all of camp comes together for games such as Capture the Flag or other ACE’s (All Camp Events). Days end with campfire and with cabin groups having a Values Session, designed to encourage reflection and personal growth.
