From small seeds grow mighty trees

Offering the perfect balance between independence and supervision, Junior Village is a safe and supportive environment where campers are encouraged to explore, discover and grow.

Campers ages 7 through 11 are housed by gender and live in Junior Boys and Junior Girls Villages. Our caring, fun-loving counselors stay in the cabins with campers, maintaining a minimum staff to camper ratio of 1:5.

Each village has a Head Counselor who oversees the village and is in constant communication with cabin counselors and our leadership team.

Pick your own activities

With a ton of fun to choose from, campers are empowered to make their own choices each week! Kids select two morning activities before arrival and will choose between two afternoon activities offered each day.

Is my child ready for a sleepaway camp?

Many parents struggle with the thought of sending their kids to sleep away camp. Regardless of whether your child is a first-time camper or taking the leap from day camp to overnight camp, it’s important for families to feel comfortable and ready to take the plunge.

I wish I could stay here forever.
