Oaks and Acorns Weekend

Is a new program being offered new in 2021. This weekend is for all children and adults to explore camp together. This camp requires at least one adult to attend with a youth/child.


The cabins can accommodate 4-10 people each (depending on the cabin). The cabins have bunk beds as well as shelving to put all of your belongings. Linens are not provided and families/groups will need to bring their own sleeping bags or blankets. Cabins are also equipped with solar powered lights.


Meals are served in our central Dining Hall. The meals are served as a buffet. Families may choose to either eat together or mingle with others. Please indicate any allergies or dietary restrictions when you are registering for the program. Our staff work hard to provide high quality, nutritious meals throughout the week/weekend. If you have any questions regarding the menu, please contact us at the camp office.
