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 12 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 its own Village Supervisor who oversees the village and serves as a direct point of contact for parents. The Village Supervisor is in constant communication with cabin counselors and the camp directors.

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.
