Camp Evergreen has loads of different activities which will be sure to please every camper. Each activity is designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group. Campers go with their Tent to assigned activities in the morning, and in the afternoon, they have the opportunity to choose which activities they would like to experience. Take a look at just a few of the activities that Evergreen has to offer!
We provide all the materials and equipment for all the activities offered at camp.
Every day, campers have lots of time to get wet! Our two large pools allow for the beginner to learn with confidence and the advanced swimmer to progress. We have a large pool which is designed for instruction. The shallow end is 3 feet deep which is shallow enough for our smallest campers to touch the bottom. The pool gradually slopes to 10 ft and is deep enough to dive. Our smaller pool is 4 feet deep. The Red Cross Program of Instruction is given daily by our Water Safety Instructors to all campers. Campers swim twice daily, once for instruction and again for practice and fun.
Nature is an integral part of our camp program, utilizing the marshes, woods, ponds, foliage, and the unspoiled terrain surrounding us. Here campers learn about their natural environment. They become familiar with the "chain of life," developing an awareness of plants, trees, animals, wild edible foods, etc. They explore, experience, and learn to appreciate our natural resources. Our nature hut adjoins the pond and houses some of our smaller animals. Nature trails wind through 3,300 acres of forest.
Here our campers learn fire building, lashing, map reading, compass reading, cooking on an open fire, and other skills which make camping a safe, comfortable, and healthy experience. Camp Craft helps to develop resourcefulness, initiative, self-reliance, and a respect for the outdoors. All of the tools and equipment are provided and are stored in the Camp Craft building.
At our Outdoor Theater, Camp Evergreen offers a unique setting for theater indoctrination. Campers have the opportunity to take part in two major camp productions, as well as weekly "all camp get togethers". All campers have the opportunity to perform at least once while at camp. Friday is show time! Camper skits, talent shows, and Karaoke shows are just a few.
Arts and Crafts
Creativity with ceramics, paints, clay and other natural materials makes this a popular and productive activity. Campers enjoy our fully equipped Arts and Crafts studio.
Our Wood Shop Specialist has an array of projects prepared for your camper. From boats to cars to popsicle stick projects, there is always something to keep your child interested in woodworking. We stress the proper use of tools and teach the basic fundamentals when creating with wood.
Boating and Canoeing
Our own natural half-acre pond allows the perfect setting for rowing instruction. With life jackets on, campers may use one of Evergreen's fleet of rowboats and paddle boats to explore Lynn's Lagoon. Campers can get a close look at a frog or perhaps experience some of our visiting friendly ducks and geese.
Campers also have the opportunity explore the surrounding water ways. Canoe club adventures to the many surrounding ponds for afternoons of paddling and exploration. Be careful, you might get wet!
Sports, sports, and more sports. Evergreen has all the facilities to play a wide variety of sports. Basketball, tennis, street hockey, soccer, ultimate frisbee, softball, touch football, track and field, volley ball, gaga pit...if you can name it, chances are we got it!
Expert supervision at our archery range, which is nestled in a cool spot in the woods, is one of many specialist activities offered.
We offer programs for beginners and more experienced riders, with pointers on grooming and care. Horseback lessons are provided by an outside riding agency. Riding fee is not included in the regular tuition. Space is limited. First come, first served.
Special events add to the group spirit and excitement of our camp season. Our annual all-camp carnival and circus are traditions. Drama productions, field trips, dress-up day, and Olympics are but a few of our special activities. Take a look at our calendar page for more details on special events and where the fall during the summer.
