5th & 6th Graders

Forest Ridge Campers receive amazing opportunities to practice good sportsmanship, develop crucial communication skills and learn to work together in a community setting.

Whether planning their overnight activities, performing a skit together or creating a collective art project, counselors ensure that every child in the group has a role.

"Teamwork" is an effective tool for Forest Ridge campers who learn to work together and appreciate each other's strengths and celebrate our differences.

Group-specific Special Event:
Campers bring their sleeping bags and PJs to camp and sleepover after a fun night of playing games and eating dinner around the campfire with their counselors. Breakfast and lunch provided the following day.

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!
