Summer Overnight Camp

Adventure Awaits Inside Our Gates

Camp is a time for youth to explore, discover, and create in a place that encourages confidence and community. An overnight experience provides opportunities for kids to experience new interests and take appropriate risks while learning what it means to be a good friend and leader.

Frequently Asked Questions

We promote a friendly and inclusive environment. Our staff is trained to encourage positive interactions among campers, and we monitor group dynamics to ensure everyone feels comfortable and engaged. Campers are grouped by age and grade.

If a camper loses something, our lost and found is accessible for parents to check during pick-up. We encourage labeling your child’s belongings to help us return items promptly.

We have a behavior management system in place to address any issues that might occur. Our approach is focused on positive reinforcement and open communication. If a camper poses harm to themselves or others, we may need to excuse them from the program. If this occurs, no refunds are available.

Photo release forms are built into every registration form. We use photos on our social channels and in marketing and promotion of the program. We also share on parent portals. Photos will only appear on approved channels owned/operated by the organization.

With years of experience, we’ve learned to watch for signs of homesickness and we work to manage these natural feelings within the camp atmosphere. Managing homesickness begins at home! Parents/guardians should speak of the camp experience in a positive manner. NEVER tell your child that you may not make it without them or that you think they may miss home too much to stay away that long. Let them know how much you love them and want them to have a great experience in growing up!

Once your Campership form has been completed, you’ll receive a letter of qualification from our staff. Please sign and send the letter back and then proceed with registering your child for your preferred week. An adjustment will be made to your account after you register. We look forward to serving you and your family this summer!
