3rd & 4th Graders

WILDLIFE VALLEY
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.

Overday: Campers stay at camp until 7:00pm and enjoy a cookout dinner, field games and an extra swim period
