age and ability

sports and more.
Transportation is included from home and central locations.
LITTLE RACCOONS (Pre-K
- 2nd Grade)
While most of our
youngest campers are ready for the full Roughing It program, some younger children and
their parents may wish to start with our Little Raccoons program. This
program is a shorter camp experience (2-week sessions) with fewer scheduled
activities for a less busy camp day. Little Raccoons are in
their own co-ed camper group with campers 4 - 7 years old.
