 Classic Camp

Classic Camp, available at all three overnight camps, is the traditional overnight camp experience! During each session, campers will enjoy a variety of activities including swimming, campfires, cookouts, paddling on the lake, leadership games, art projects, songs and more. Campers will individually select two focus areas to explore during their camp session. This approach allows campers to get to know their instructors, progressively build skills and gain confidence each day.

New this year- three focus areas will be offered during every Classic Camp session: STEM in the Outdoors, Art in the Outdoors and Adventure in the Outdoors. Other focus areas will vary by week based on the unique offerings from summer camp staff. Last year’s focus areas included sign language, calligraphy, orienteering, chair building, paddle boarding, synchronized swimming and more. This year’s offerings are sure to be just as exciting!
