3rd & 4th Graders

Wildlife Valley offers a broader range of activities. A full selection of hobbies, ropes course initiatives & outdoor skills are just a few of the fun endeavors campers experience.

Campers are eager to be autonomous and independent; skills that ultimately foster "responsibility." Through the Camp Thoreau character constellation program, campers learn responsibility to set the tone for taking on more ambitious activities.

Campers can choose from any of our 9 themed weeks of traditional camp or our tennis camp! Every week at Camp Thoreau offers something new and exciting while maintaining all the greatness of our traditional camp. Choose what works best your you. All campers enjoy consistent scheduling, staffing and the same camp values and traditions all summer long!

Activities include:

  • Archery
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Drama
  • Field Sports
  • Tennis
  • Nature
  • Outdoor Adventure Skills
  • High and Low Ropes Challenge Course**
  • Hobbies (2 periods of free-choice each afternoon)***
    ** High Ropes Challenge Course is offered to our Wildlife Valley (rising 3rd & 4th grade) campers and older
    *** Free-choice afternoon
