6th – 8th Grade
Eagles, Deer & Lynx
For campers who have completed 6th – 8th grade. The program runs for 24-day sessions.
Eagles, Deer & Lynx enjoy more choice in their daily activities. They will still have the opportunity to engage in our core camp activities: archery, arts & crafts, farm-life, games, nature, and woodworking during 3rd period each day. However, the first period they will choose between a variety of electives that change daily and second period each day they will delve into a concentration of their choice which will be an opportunity to develop a new skill over the three weeks. Concentrations may include a variety of crafts including woodworking, pioneering and primitive skills, farming, painting and drawing, performance skills, etc. These middle school age campers also enjoy the challenges of our ropes course.
Each afternoon includes General Swim and Free Time before supper. The whole camp community sings together after supper and plays an evening activity before cabin groups retire to their bunks for bedtime, including reflections on the day and a story.
Eagles, Deer, and Lynx each go on a three to five-day wilderness trip, either canoeing or hiking in the wilds of New England away from Camp.
