General Camp Information

Trekkers are explorers! Campers spend Mondays at Earthplace engaging in team building through pond studies, animal hall exploring, shelter buiding, and more. During the rest of the week, off campus field trips focus on nature discovery and environmental learning. On Tuesdays Trekkers go canoeing. Wednesdays are at a museum and Thursdays are hiking followed by a campout at Earthplace.


Each week during the Thursday night campout our campers go on a night hike, pitch their own tents, cook their dinner over the campfire and make s'mores for dessert. In the morning Trekkers enjoy breakfast before pickup. Pickup from the overnight is at 9:00 am on Friday, and there is no camp for Trekkers that day.


Counselor to camper ratio is at least 1:6, with a minimum of two counselors per group.

Monday-Wednesday    9:00 am-4:00 pm, Thursday- Friday overnight 9:00am - 9:00 am
