Send your kid on an adventure that they’ll remember for the rest of their life! Resident camp gives campers the unique opportunity to make new friends, bond with and learn from different adults, discover their strengths, develop leadership skills, try new activities, and seek challenges all while having lots of fun!
Campers can choose specialty camps like archery, horseback riding, sailing, and science, or enjoy a classic summer camp experience (that has a little bit of everything!). Look for sessions such as Art Explosion, Summer Camp Classic, Survivor Girl Mountain Biking, Outdoors & S’mores, and more.
Our camps are safe, hands-on, and inspiring, and our locations will acquaint campers with our region’s landscape, from woods and wetlands to prairies and rolling hills. Campers will find fun, courage, and purpose—and best of all, they’ll find themselves.
