During a sunny week at camp the best way to beat the heat is the swimming pool! Just ask one of our campers. The pool is always full of happy campers. With water games and a water slide you can bet it’s busy!
The pool is open on the weekends from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend for our overnight guests. You must provide your own adult supervision and observe all posted rules. The 125 person capacity pool has depths of 3′ to 4’6″. The attached bathhouse has showers and dressing rooms available. Please check for pool hours during your visit.
Challenge Course & Zip-line
Our challenge course is a great place for campers to learn and grow! With several elements and games campers will learn about teamwork and leadership.
Soar through the trees of the wooded hillside on our zip line course. Our certified guides will train you on the 60 foot training line before you travel down the 180 and 250 foot lines. While having a great time, you will also build confidence and learn responsibility. The zip line is available for groups renting our facilities. Reservations must be made 2 weeks prior to your visit and will be available as weather and staff permit.
We have a BB and archery range where our campers can practice their skills with our trained instructors. It is a safe and fun place for campers to improve their shooting. With plenty of practice they will be hitting bulls-eyes in no time.
