Specialty Camps

Horse Camps

Our horse camps are unlike any other program in the area.  Register your child for a week of horse camp and they will get a horse assigned to them for the week matching their ability level.  They will then learn how to care for their horse, how to saddle them, the different parts of the horse, not to mention how to ride.  Our horse camps are perfect for the equine enthusiast in your family.

Resident Horse Camp

Ages 10-14

One week sessions beginning June 10 through August 10

Horse camp is an experience that your child will never forget.  Your child’s time at camp will be focused on not only riding horses but also taking care of them as well.  Your child will have a horse that will be theirs for the entire week that they will be brushing, cleaning and learning to ride.  In the afternoon, your child will join back with their cabin and participate in cabin and large group activities with everyone else.  Your child will not be able to thank you enough for giving them this opportunity.

Day Horse Camp

Ages 10-12

One week sessions beginning June 11 through August 10

For those campers who are unable to attend our resident horse program, we have day horse camp.  Day horse campers will get the chance to ride horses as well as learn how to take care of their own horse.  In the afternoon they will join the rest of day camp for swimming.

Day horse campers will have an amazing experience learning what it really means to take care of their own horse. If your child has ever asked you for a horse as a birthday present before, this is the perfect gift for them.

Teen Camps

As your child progresses through our camping programs, we want to help you prepare them to become independent and ready to take their next step into the world as an adult.  Our Teen Camp programs are designed specifically with that in mind.  By putting them into situations that will make them learn problem solving techniques, they are learning lessons that can be used throughout their entire lives.

Two Week Resident Camp    

Ages 10-14    

June 17-29 & July 29-Aug 10

This camp is two weeks straight and is a great getaway experience for our senior campers.  Your camper will come to camp on a Sunday and stay for two straight weeks.  They will engage in traditional camp activities but will also have the opportunity to camp out by our lake, climb our 50 foot Alpine Tower, and much more.  On the weekend, campers will be camping at an off-site facility to get the feeling of camping in a new place.
The two weeks that your child will have at camp will give them the chance to build even stronger relationships with their cabin mates that one week campers are just not able to do. If your camper is ready for the next step, this is the camp for them.

Teen Camp

Ages 13-15

June 10-29 (Home on Saturdays)

At this age, some kids might start to feel too old or too cool for camp.  Our teen campers know that camp is the cool thing to do in the summer!  For three weeks, they’ll get to do their favorite camp activities with their friends, but they’ll also really start to blossom into young adults.  We’ll help them push their limits and realize their potential.  Each summer, the teen campers decide on how they want to leave their mark and work on a legacy project.  Past projects have included updating program areas and building new camp trails!

Leader in Training

Ages 16-17

June 10-29

Each year, we hire counselors from all across the world to work as counselors at camp. Some of our counselors were campers and many of them completed the Leader in Training (LIT) program, formerly named CIT/WIT program.  If you have a young adult that you think would be a great staff member, enroll them as a L.I.T.  They will be with us for three weeks and will learn what it really takes to be a counselor/staff member.  The first week they will get to be a regular camper and learn about camp.  The second week of camp they will shadow one of our current counselors.  The last week of camp, they will be the lead of a cabin group while our counselors support them.  It is our goal to hire counselors who have completed the L.I.T. program once they are old enough.
