Kid's Adventure Camps - Campers ages 7 - 11

Get Adventurous This Summer!

This day camp for children ages 7-11 offers an opportunity to experience many outdoor activities throughout the day.  Campers arrive each morning ready to get outside and expand their horizons.  They start the day with a game of kickball or a snack of fruit before heading to their first session.  Each camper is placed with a group of peers to experience these adventure-based programs.  From navigating the resort with a compass to paddling kayaks on the reservoir, they are certain to work up an appetite. A healthy lunch is provided at our Tubing Lodge for their mid-day break before resuming activities in the afternoon.    After lunch, it’s back to the woods for an archery lesson or to build wilderness huts.  At the end of the day, campers return to the lodge for a snack and free time with their new friends before heading home.

Drop-off is between 8:00 and 8:15 am with activities beginning at 8:30.  Pickup is 4:00 pm.
