Kids’ Kamp (age 4 – 13) create an exciting summer camp experience for your children so that you can golf, play tennis, shop, or just relax knowing the kids are in good hands and having a great time too! With continual interaction and guidance from our trained, qualified counselors and a full-time adult supervisor, your children will be kept busy with games, activities, and fun – with a special focus on connecting with nature. Lunch is served each day at 11:30 a.m.

Kids’ Kamp 2018 will return to its roots as an outdoor adventure camp! Each day has a different exciting curriculum focused on being outdoors and enjoying nature. This includes canoeing and kayaking, nature hikes, fishing, swimming, birding and more. In addition to these outdoor activities, there will be crafts and activities galore, including nature journal writing, kite making, ice cream making (and eating!), plus lots and lots of games (kickball, capture the flag, bean bag tournaments, obstacle course, etc.).

Kids are encouraged to leave their phones in their cabins and get connected with nature!
