Our Camps

Camp Life Is The BEST Life!

 

Are you dreaming of campfire sing-alongs? Best friends whispering in the night from your sleeping bag? Conquering the climbing wall, swimming, hiking, and just being outdoors? We are, and we can’t wait to be back at camp, too!

We are looking forward to the 2021 camp season!
As we get ready to open registration in early January and prepare for the summer, we will keep you informed throughout the process. We appreciate that a lot of what the next year will bring is still unknown. The safety of our campers and staff will remain in the forefront as we plan for a successful summer. We will continue to closely follow all recommendations and will keep families updated throughout the season. While the summer of 2021 may look a little different, we are confident that it will still be a special and welcoming place for all campers. We encourage families to reserve a place by registering In January.

Get ready to register for camp:
Registration for camp will open January 11, 2021 - and you’ll have all the information about programs, bus stops, and troop and family programs before then!

Register for T-shirt Day
Can’t wait for camp to start? Wear your camp T-shirt and join International Wear-Your-Camp-T-Shirt Day on November 10! Want to sing along with campers from all over the council? Register for the T-shirt sing-along November 10, and participate with us on Zoom! We’ll sing songs, and maybe provide some sneak peeks of programs planned for summer 2021.

Camp Staff
Camp Staff

Our summer staff are recruited from around the world. They are college students, mothers, teachers and others who enjoy working with children. They all complete an application and interview, provide references, and undergo a formal background check. All staff complete an intensive pre-camp training orientation before campers arrive.

Barn Program Aide and Camp Program Aide
Gain valuable experience and have fun at this volunteer work program that expands on your Program Aide training. Camp Program Aides assist in all areas of camp—waterfront, adventure, office, kitchen, crafts, and in units – while Barn Program Aides also aide in barn programs. In between, you’ll get to enjoy camp program areas as a unit. 

Counselor in Training (CIT) and Barn Leader in Training (BLIT)
This two-year training program provides you with skills and knowledge you’ll need to become a successful camp staff member. In your first year, spend four weeks brushing up on your camp skills, practicing new leadership skills, and gaining valuable experience working with campers. BLITs additionally spend time at the barn, and must have documented riding/horse care experience. 

The next year, refine your skills by observing and assisting experienced staff, and then be fully immersed in working with an assigned camper group. BLITs can expect to also instruct groups at the barn in lessons and horse care.

Interested in one of these leadership programs?
Register for either program through your favorite camp and then fill out the Camp Leadership Program Application.
