Health & Safety
Roughing It has been providing safe outdoor experiences for children since 1972. Our team has been committed for 50 years to making Roughing It the safest place possible.
For Summer 2022 we’ll be modifying programs and implementing guidelines in response to COVID.
We have updated our camp program to operate under the current COVID guidelines. As conditions in our community evolve so does our planning and response. We will follow all safety guidelines as defined by the state and county. We will continue to evaluate current health conditions, work with local officials, and will make modifications to our program as needed to keep our campers and staff safe.
Bus pick up is 7:50-8:50am and drop off 3:10-4:10pm from central bus stops. We will email exact bus times the week before camp starts.
Call ahead if you’ll miss the bus. We’ll see if the bus has any time to wait, or we’ll direct you to the next stop.
If the bus is running late, we’ll send you a text with estimated bus arrival time.

Get ready for camp this summer. Sign up for Camp Information Webinar on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 – 6pm. New and returning camp families are invited to join us for a virtual camp tour and live Q&A session with our camp directors.

Share Camp with Friends
Roughing It could not be what it is today without the help of our families sharing camp with their friends.
We’ve put together an easy way for you to share camp info with friends. Be part of this tradition and help your friends have an amazing summer.
There are many special events that go on during camp, so plan ahead. Each week has a theme, including dress-up days.
Due to COVID guidelines we will be unable to have parent visiting days this summer.
Tips for New Campers
We want your camper have a great camp experience and grow as an individual. There may be a transition period as your camper gets used to camp, so we recommend looking over our tips for new campers.

Purchase sweatshirts, hats, and extra t-shirts for your camper.
Note: we give every camper a free t-shirt for the summer (no need to order).
