From early morning to late evening, campers are active. Our programs are varied and designed to provide fun, education, community-building, an appreciation of nature, spiritual growth, and rest.
Daily activities include swimming, canoes, horseback riding, crafts, recreation, nature study, outdoors, low ropes and high ropes (ages 11-15) course. Fishing and hiking, cookouts, playing in Kelly Creek, sports and games, riflery and archery all add to the fun.
The pool staff are certified lifeguards who give swim tests at the beginning of the session, teach short daily skilled swimming lessons on campers' levels, and observe their free swims. All campers are under the buddy system while at the pool.
All campers have an opportunity to ride horses several times during the week. All our horses are gentle enough for non-riders. Horse activities are under close supervision.

Every night at camp has a different theme with a variety of activities. Some of the night activities were created at camp's very beginning and continue to be loved by campers. Some night activities change every year! Most of the night activities feature a time when the entire camp gathers together, and a time when campers are partipating in activities as a hut or in smaller groups. Bedtimes are staggered so our youngest campers get the sleep that they need! Click here to read about camp's nightly theme parties.
Over camp's nine decades, many traditions have become a part of daily camp life.

Many campers want to know what the food is like at camp. We offer campers choices so that even picky eaters find something they like. Click here for the camp menu.
We strive to serve healthy, satisfying food at all meals. We work closely with Chris Vizzina, the Executive Chef with Campus Dining, Inc. at Samford University to make sure that our meals provide the fuel your child needs to make it though the camp day.
