Monday through Friday, campers arrive by bus and car to enjoy the full camp program from 8:45 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. All campers enjoy swimming, boating, nature, arts and crafts, the challenge course, music, campfire cooking, and special daily programs. Day campers must have completed kindergarten and be no older than 12 years old. Campers are grouped by grade-level usually no more than one grade apart.
Campers check in Sunday evening and stay overnight in cabins through Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. Beyond the day camp program, our resident campers enjoy evening campfires, dining hall meals, and learn to live and make decisions with other children their own age. Small groups of campers bond with one counselor for the week in our traditional cabins. Resident campers must have completed second grade. Campers are grouped by grade-level usually no more than one grade apart.
The CIT program is a national leadership program for teenagers interested in working with children in a camp setting. The three-year program begins with a week of resident camp at 13 years old, another week of resident camp at 14 years old, and then two weeks of shadowing at 15 years old. Those graduating from the CIT program are eligible to apply for a day camp counselor position the following summer, at 16 years old.
