Three Traditional Camp Units by Age

One-week sessions are offered all weeks

Our traditional camp is arranged into three units based on grade.

  • Juniors (age 3 - grade 2)
  • Middlers (grades 3-5)
  • Seniors (grades 6-10)

Within each camp unit, we offer broad-based, co-ed, age-appropriate activities that promote physical development, social interaction, and personal growth. Activities may include archery, boating, low/high ropes, nature exploration, camp games, and arts and crafts. Swim lessons are included four days a week, and campers enjoy recreational swimming Monday-Friday.

Specialty Camps within Units:

One-week sessions are offered some weeks

Campers enrolled in specialty camps spend half of the day on projects, hands-on activities, and games that broaden their special interests. The other half is for traditional activities, including a daily recreational swim and activities such as archery, boating, or nature. 

Juniors (age 3-entering grade 2)

Our Junior campers experience all the fun of traditional camp and will be introduced to age-appropriate elements of our archery, climbing, and ropes programs. Campers in this program are taught the importance of friendship, teamwork, and community. You will be amazed at your camper’s social, emotional, and physical growth during their time with us

Middlers (entering grades 3-5)

Our Middler Unit offers campers the space, support, and opportunity for growth. Campers will enjoy traditional camp activities like archery, plus expanded adventures on the high and low ropes course and canoeing on the Ashland Reservoir! At this level, we begin to see campers grow in self-confidence as their independence shines through

Seniors (entering grades 6-9)

Our Senior campers can take ownership of their camp experience through choice in their daily activities, including arts programming, sports, outdoor adventure, instructional swim lessons, and recreational swimming. They will develop skills in archery, utilize all elements of the high and low ropes course and the zipline circuit, and enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding on the Ashland Reservoir.
