Age Groups at a Glance
Discovery Camp | Ages 3 through entering 1st grade
A unique environment created precisely for our youngest campers. Children are placed into specific groups based on age/grade and participate in many camp activities under the close supervision of our nurturing counselors. The low camper-to-counselor ratio ensures that all campers receive the support and assurance they need for a successful camp experience. A sampling of activities includes swim instruction, arts and crafts, sing-alongs, sandbox play, outdoor games, nature activities, center play, zipline and hillside slide. Children entering the first grade also have the opportunity to go boating. All campers must be completely potty trained and at least age three by June 1. To provide a quality experience, we recommend all three-year olds attend a minimum of two or more weeks and we strongly recommend consecutive weeks.
Explorer Camp | Entering grades 2nd-5th
Explorer campers are always looking for fun and challenging experiences and we provide them! Campers are grouped by grade level with rising second and third graders together and rising fourth and fifth graders together. Excellent counselor role models provide supervision, guidance and encouragement. Due to the large variety of activities, explorer campers often get to choose their activities. Some of the activities include swimming, arts and crafts, archery, boating, zipline, nature study, group initiatives, outdoor games, sports, and more. Rising fourth graders, and older, have opportunities to sign up for the climbing tower, marksmanship, and our tree climbing program.
Adventure Camp | Entering grades 6th-8th
The ultimate in middle school-based camping. There are plenty of activities that vary by week including woodworking, drama, challenge games, sports, crafts, climbing tower, zipline, tree climbing and other options. But what really makes adventure camp so popular is the group bonding time, peer relationships and camaraderie with staff. Under the leadership of active staff role models, adventurers are a tight knit team and thrive on getting to choose their groups based on the weekly activities.
