Teen Camp

9 Weekly Sessions • Ages 14 to 16

Each week 14-16-year-old campers registered for Teen Camp will participate in and help to conduct their own more autonomous and exciting programs such as trip-camping, “extreme team,” climbing, sailboat racing, and many other great activities. Teen campers can exercise their independence and responsibility by helping to create their own less-routine programs. They will also complete a Camp project and assist with special events.

*Most weeks could have a waitlist, as we only have spaces for specific ages and genders. Please place your camper on the waitlist. We may be able to accommodate their spot if there is a cancelation.

Leader-In-Training Program

8 Two Week Sessions • Age 15 to 16

*For campers who have successfully completed our Teen program.

Campers who are 15 years old (by the start of camp) and who register for a two-week Leader in Training (LIT) session will have a great time taking trips and participating in more mature projects while also learning the responsibilities required of leadership. This experience is excellent for older teens who want excitement and responsibility and are ready to handle more independence.

During their first week, they will participate in training, and during the second week, they will assist in general cabin areas to help with the camp program. LITs will be able to help structure their own program, and activities include several off-camp site trips. Successful LITs often return as staff members in future seasons. LITs may register for more than one session and can attend any two consecutive weeks. 

*A weekend stay is not required; optional "in-between" Weekender sessions are available for an additional fee.

*Enrollment capacity is limited to four LITs per week.
