Inside the Tipi
Indian Summer is an 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.
The highlight of this very special week is the Indian Summer Sleepover. After working hard all week constructing the village, it comes alive for one night. Campers prepare a delicious feast, play awesome games, and enjoy a wonderful evening camping out in the woods with their friends and favorite counselors. Campers may sleep in their shelters or bring their own tent. This is truly a unique experience and a great first introduction to camping. Saturday morning we prepare a hot breakfast of pancakes, eggs, corn beef hash, and of course SPAM!
Indian Summer has been a Camp Evergreen tradition since the beginning and we feel it's a wonderful way to end the summer.
