Summer Day Camp for Campers Entering 7th or 8th Grade

Teepee Elder campers have fun choosing adventurous activities throughout the day and have special programming twice a week. On Wednesdays, the Elders will learn how to make a campfire and will cook their own lunch and dessert.

Favorite activities for Teepee Elder campers include:

  • Tree climbing
  • Rappelling
  • Rock climbing the 40-foot wall
  • Bike riding
  • The Flying Squirrel
  • Nature exploration
  • Gardening
  • Learning about the farm animals
  • Arts and crafts
  • Kayaking
  • Hiking
  • Drama
  • Land fishing
  • Crawdad-catching
  • Inner tubing in the pond
  • Pottery
  • Camp newspaper
  • Movie making
  • Free swimming
  • Field games
  • Archery
  • Pony rides
  • Outdoor cooking
  • Creek exploring
  • Archaeology
  • Tie-dye
  • And Much more!

Campers spend one hour in each activity group. Sometimes an activity fills up; we ask campers to have a second choice in mind. If the activity continues to fill up and by Wednesday your camper has not done that activity, let us know and we will put your child’s name at the top of the list for the next day’s group. We recommend that campers attend Whippoorwill for two sessions to participate in all activity choices or spend more time in a favorite activity.
