Experience A Week Of Fun And Adventures
Don’t miss this new weeklong overnight experience! Campers ages 12-15 stay in our dorm style houses unique to Whitetail. They learn to live cooperatively together and share in all the experiences of being away from home. Campers will even test their skills at cooking over an open campfire. Each day is packed with new activities ranging from tubing on Antietam Creek to hiking the Tuscarora Trail. Participants will also have the opportunity to try out high ropes and enjoy paddleboards on our reservoir. After a day full of activity, campers return to Whitetail for personal time and enjoy unwinding with evening campfire activities. Our goal is to have campers form friendships that last a lifetime and create an unforgettable experience so they return again and again! Space is limited.
