Activity Board: The activity board will be listed every day with fun, innovative classes for our campers to try! This time is a great opportunity for campers to try new things, or do more of their favorite camp activities!

Archery: Our Archery program is part of the NYS Shooting Sports certified program. We have several targets in our full archery range, including stand-up bullseye targets, hanging dice, and stand-up animal figures. Campers will learn proper shooting techniques and safety from a certified instructor. We also play archery games and exercises to improve our skills, such as Tic-tac-toe, V-Shot, and Shoot your Fears. Each camper will have an opportunity to participate in the competition at the end of each week for the chance to earn bragging rights and goodies.

High & Low Ropes Team Adventure: Our ropes course offers several of low-to-the-ground adventure elements along with 10 high-rope elements, a 3-face rock wall, and a 50-meter zipline. These elements highlight the need for teamwork and creative planning to problem-solve and overcome challenges. Prior to entering the elements course, groups begin the week participating in activities that develop campers’ trust and communication skills. Challenges progressively become harder as the group moves forward!
