“A traditional summer camp with the comforts of home.”
Resident Camp serves 7 -15 years old campers.
Traditional Camp Activities: We feature traditional camp activities such as archery, arts & crafts, horseback riding, swimming, outdoor survival, music, mountain biking and more. With our “free choice” format, campers are able to create their own program and pick the activities that they would like to try.
Each Wednesday during the afternoon activity sessions, we offer a variety of new activities to mix things up and allow our campers to try something new such as rock wall climbing, giant slip n’ slide, “spa” day or water rockets.
Camp Fire – Evening Activities: Resident Campers participate each night in a special evening program. Programs may include: Camp Fires, Dances, Karaoke Night, Skit Night, Bingo, Casino Night, Color Wars, Night Hikes, Sleep Outs, Moonlight Pool Parties and much more!
Cabin / Lodging: Campers stay in comfortable, college style dorm rooms with approximately 2-5 other campers. Both the boys’ and girls’ dormitories feature a common room, game room with ping pong and pool tables and an outdoor patio area. Large, modern bathrooms with privates showers are in each hall as well as washers and dryers. Counselors are also available to help out campers doing laundry for the first time!
Meals / Food Service: All of our nutrious meals are prepared by the Woodside Prioy School’s year around chef and professional food service team.
