SPLASH! Camp Sessions

SPLASH

We had such a great time with this camp session last summer, we decided to offer two sessions in 2019 – June 16 – 21 AND July 7 – 12.

All DuBois Center campers spend time at the waterfront, but SPLASH! sessions are designed for those who want to spend even more time IN, ON and NEAR the lake. Sand castles, masks & fins, early morning canoeing, crazy water games & challenges, water experiments, vespers on the beach – who knows what cool adventures might drift our way!

Both sessions will be based out of the main camp cottages. The age groups do vary a bit between the two, so be sure to check the schedule.

Pick up a camp brochure at your UCC church or download one today. To receive a brochure by mail, contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202. Space is limited, so don’t wait too long. If you are ready to register, click here.

Horse Camps – Ready to Ride?

Horse Camp 1
Do you love to ride horses? Want to learn more about them and how to care for these beautiful creatures? Consider coming to a Horse Camp at DuBois Center!
Horse Campers spend more time with the ponies, but still have time for other camp favorites like swimming, 9-Square, vespers and crafts. If the weather cooperates, they have the option to ride each day. Some mornings, these horse enthusiasts are up and at ’em long before breakfast to feed, groom and tack the herd. An early morning ride – in the cool of the day – is a great reward for early morning chores! Later in the day, the stalls need to be mucked out. Horse campers take turns, and have fun while learning about the responsibilities of caring for horses.
Younger campers can hop aboard the Pony Express for an introduction to horse camp. Older ones can choose from a variety of sessions.
PONY EXPRESS (completed grades 4-6)
            July 21-24
HORSIN’ AROUND (completed grades 5-7)
            June 9-14, July 14-19
SADDLE ‘EM UP (completed grades 7-9)
            June 7-12, July 14-19

LEAD – June 23 – 28

LEAD photo
Leadership Experience and Development – LEAD – is a great Camp session for young people who are interested in developing their leadership skills, working with younger children, and having a great time at DuBois Center!
LEAD functions much like a “lab school” with discussion, instruction, practice and evaluation sessions. Skills gained will help participants grow as positive Christian leaders, manage camp situations and camper behavior, create a safe, fun environment, and teach basic camp skills. LEAD is designed for youth who have completed grades 10-12. Check out this flyer for more details.
Previous camp experience is not required, but we do require a special application in addition to the Camp Registration Form. The LEAD application packet is available online or by contacting DuBois Center at email or 618-787-2202.

Full Week Photo

If your child will complete grades 3-5 this spring or summer, then it’s time to step up to Settler! New friends and lots of fun are just the beginning. Campers run, play, sing, eat, jump, act, create, splash, pray, hike, explore, build, ride and finally… sleep!

Growing and playing together, exploring God’s creation, building a Christian community – that’s Settler camp at DuBois Center. Three days just isn’t enough time to explore all that DuBois Center has to offer, so consider these sessions for the next step: June 9-14, June 23-28 and July 7-12.

Check out the camp brochure and register online. For more information or to receive materials by mail, contact the DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.
