Get to Know More about Roughing It
Roughing It prides itself on a strong philosophy, great staff, and excellent
programs--and we know these values are hard to convey just from a webpage. That
is why we recommend the following resources and events as great ways to learn more
about the Roughing It way.
Events for New Families
Roughing It provides many opportunities for new families to visit us and learn
first hand what Roughing It is like.
- Camp Shows
Conducted by Hobie and Ann Woods, Camp Shows are the best way to
learn about Roughing It. Camp Shows are hosted at the home of
one of our camper families or at our Office in Lafayette.
- Camp Events
at the Lafayette Reservoir
During the spring and early summer Roughing It hosts one day
events that allow you to visit the beautiful Lafayette reservoir
and get a sample of camp.
Roughing It is proud to provide a list of
camper families who are available to give you a parent's perspective on the camp
experience at Roughing It.
