Junior Camp (Ages 6-8)

First things first on the farm…
…rabbits, chickens, horses, calves, and pigs. Campers learn the importance of caring for the farm animals by feeding and watering them each day. During the very hot summer days, camp groups will check on their assigned animal of the day to make sure they have plenty of water. Farm chores are good lessons in responsibility and caring for others.  Then it’s off to our daily activity schedules after group time.

Program Emphasis:

  • Swimming
  • Challenge Course
  • Horseback
  • Team and Individual Sports
  • Canoeing
  • Archery
  • Arts & Crafts

 Overnight Information

The last Friday night of each three week camp session concludes with a cookout and a campout. There’s a “theme of the evening” and campers participate in skits, stunts, games, and a campfire. Many times, costumes are made by the camper to wear as part of the theme. The costume should be something simple, made at home, with old clothes. We encourage the campers to use their imagination and be creative.

After a good night’s rest, it’s “rise and shine” for breakfast and farm chores. All of this has to be done before parents arrive for the Awards Assembly which begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning.
