OUR CAMP PROGRAMS

Day Camp - (ages 7-15) / 7 Sessions

What is Day Camp?

Day Camp is a 5 day, Mon-Fri, camp experience for children ages 7 - 15.  Day campers will be dropped off every morning between 8-8:30am  and picked up every evening (5-5:30pm) Monday through Friday. We will have space for 85 day campers each week. Campers participate in cohorted activities, camp fires, and classes such as; Archery, Swimming, Boating, Nature, Arts & Crafts, Recreation, Outpost Camping, Soccer, Field Games, Street Hockey, Nature, Outdoor Cooking, Frisbee Golf, Biking and more. Combined with new and old friends, these activities give campers many choices for a wonderful camp experience.

Day campers will stay in cohorts where they will move through different areas of camp in waves and choose from a variety of activities at each station. This will ensure campers safety by limiting their interactions and exposure to others, while still providing choices of activities. Day campers and residential campers will follow separate schedules.

Bring Your Own Horse Camp - 1 Session

What is Bring Your Own Horse Camp?

Bring-Your-Own-Horse Camp will take place this year, but with minor changes to pricing. Bring-Your-Own-Horse campers need to be fully independent in horse care tasks as well as tacking and un-tacking to maintain social distancing. Horse campers will also need to supply their own hay since we will not have it in bulk as in previous years. Bring-Your-Own-Horse Camp will take place Sunday to Friday.

Instruction and supervision will be conducted by competent, experienced staff in cooperation with the 4-H Camp Board.

Campers will live in cabins while their companions will be stabled in a box stall. Trailers cannot be left on the groundsCamp can accept 24 campers and horses during this co-ed session. Applications are accepted as received.

Horse Health and Condition

Horses so classified may be sent home at the discretion of the Horse Camp Director. Horses must be properly trimmed or shod. State law requires an updated rabies vaccination. We require a Coggins test for Equine Infectious Anemia and strongly recommend Strangles Immunization. Strangles was on the property two years and there is conflicting information about the length of time it can survive in soil. Please consult your vet.

Please check with your veterinarian before coming to camp about the advisability of immunizations for Tetanus, Equine Influenza, and Encephalomyelitis (Eastern, Western).

Arrival and Departure
  • Sunday: Registration is between 2 pm and 4 pm at Upper Baldwin
  • Friday: Camp ends at the close of the weekly final activity.
