Ranch Day

Feed Leeroy the Llama and herd of cows on Josie and Farmer John’s ranch. Harvest plants from their garden and meet the chickens.

Canoes

Launch onto the river in canoes with a counselor and paddle around. Other activities include playing in the sand and swimming in the river.

Hayride

Campers and staff take a hayride in a wagon led by a tractor to our neighbors for a puppet show. Songs are sung along the way, and staff who are walking outside the wagon pick blackberries to give to campers and staff in the wagon. Wagon never goes over 5mph. Campers never ride on the tractor.

Challenge Course

Test your teamwork skills on our challenge course. Each cabin will get a chance to make their way through team building activities with the guidance of their cabin counselors.

Movie Nights

Relax in your sleeping bag and enjoy some popcorn as we set up the projector and watch one of our favorite movies.

Overnights

Spend a night away from camp with your cabin in the Art Field, the Hay Wagon, Otter Camp, Yoga Platform, or Strawberry Rock.

Beach Hike

Staff and campers will pack up a backpacking backpack and take a mile-long hike down the beach where they will spend the night. Staff will carry water and food for the campers. After camp is set up, activities will be led on the beach, ranging from group games, art, shelter building with driftwood, and lounging.

Campfire

Sing songs, laugh at skits, perform your cabin skit, and participate in the magical medallion ceremony.
