Indian Summer is a one-week program separate from regular camp. It is open to campers in first grade and up. The schedule, counselors, specialists, and tent groups change to accommodate this program.
The pool is used twice a day. Red Cross swim lessons are not offered unless a camper is close to completing a swimming level. The pool staff takes this time to instruct in other forms of aquatic interest, such as snorkeling, racing, and boating safety.
In addition to our regular camp activities, we offer other activities which are unique to this program. We celebrate the Native American culture, as it represents the ultimate camping. Our Tipi, full of many traditional artifacts, is a fun place to discuss and share our knowledge of Native American history and customs. Our campers get to build their own village. Native American crafts are offered, such as dream catchers, talking sticks, and bear claw necklaces. We also have a great 3-D archery shoot. This is a great way to end the summer!
The Indian Summer sleepover is special, highlighted by a late night of campfire, cooking, and fun. It takes place in our village designed and built by the campers themselves. The campers prepare our traditional feast of Indian stew, buffalo meat, and corn. We bake apples on the camp fire for dessert. They have the opportunity to sleep in their shelters. Breakfast is leisurely prepared and served by the campfire.
Then home on Saturday morning. Parents have a night out!
