Description

We're sorry, but camp is sold out. If you would like to join the waitlist, please click on the "register" button.

Schweitzer Adventure Camp is back for 2017 with EIGHT fun filled sessions to choose from. Camp runs Mon-Fri from 8am-4pm with pick up and drop off from the Red Barn parking lot. Each week campers get to hike, ride the chairlift, play games in the village, climb the rock wall, sluice and find gemstones, swim daily, monkey jump, and more!

What is a week at camp like?

Each week, campers can look forward to climbing the rock wall twice, the Monkey Motion Air Jumper twice, ride the lift at least twice, hiking, village games, a trip to the Cranky Jennings Sluice Box, swimming every day, a hot dog roast on Fridays and much more!

Is there transportation?

Yes! We will pick you up in a small Schweitzer bus at the Schweitzer Park and Ride at the base of the mountain at 8am and bring you back at 4pm. What if I don’t know anybody there? Everyone makes friends at Schweitzer Camp! You’ll have fun making new friends or you can always invite a friend to join you at camp.

Are all the kids together all day?

Most of the time, all the campers stay together. However, depending on activities we may divide into 2 groups; for example, if we are going on a hike one group may go on a long hike and one group may go on a shorter hike. One group may decide to make a craft and the other rides the chairlift. (You will make the choice which group you go with.)

What if I don’t know how to swim?

The pool complex has hot tubs and a shallow end you may enjoy. The pool is an hour glass shape with one side being shallow. Campers are only allowed in the deep end once they demonstrate adequate swimming skills. You can also bring a life vest if you want to. Swimming lessons will not be provided.

How many kids will be there?

Usually there is 1 camp counselor per every 6-7 kids. Our entire group size is generally 14-18.

What if it rains?

Rain can happen, but there’s still plenty to do if it does! We won’t let it ruin our day. We may still go outside or we may choose to do indoor activities.

What about my safety?

Safety of campers is our number one priority! Specific protocol has been outlined for many situations including chairlift rides, swimming pool, and hiking. Camp counselors are certified in Red Cross first aid and CPR, and are also educated in basic pool safety. Further specifics are outlined for you upon registration confirmation.
