Camps for Older Children

Do you know of a camper who will have completed grades three through six this summer? We have plenty of camps just for them!

Classic or specialty camp, 3 days or 5 days – there is a wide variety of sessions from which to choose for this age group. Whether a first-timer or experienced camper, new adventures await. The cozy cottages on the main camp side of the lake are “home” for many campers in this age group, but those attending the Horsin’ Around, Rustic Sampler, and Splash! sessions venture out and live in the Rustic Village. The week of July 23-26 there are shorter sessions for those who would like “a taste” of horse or rustic camping. Additional camps for those completing grades 5-6, with older youth, can be found in the camp brochure.

Camps Perfect for Younger Children

Children who have completed grades 1–3 are often looking for ways to gain independence and experience life like the “big kids.” Parents are looking for opportunities for their children to gain self-confidence, critical social skills and a greater awareness of God’s world. At DuBois Center, we have six part-week sessions designed with this in mind.

New adventures under the watchful eyes of caring, safety conscious leaders and smaller group sizes are ideal for this age group. Despite the length of these sessions, there is still time to ride a horse, explore the creek, swim in the lake and make lots of new friends. This summer, choose from Boy Meets Camp, Camp Quest, Discovery Camp or Girl Power. These sessions vary a bit in length and/or content:

Younger Children 2Camp Quest – June 14, 16 & June 28 – 30: Offers a taste of camp life from Wednesday afternoon to Friday afternoon.

Discovery Camp – June 25 – 27 & July 16 – 18: Slightly longer than Camp Quest, campers arrive Sunday afternoon and leave Tuesday evening after dinner.

Boy Meets Camp – July 19 – 21: Just for the boys and packed with camp adventures!

Girl Power – July 23 – 26: Laugh, dance, play and explore – all in the spirit of sisterhood!
