Come celebrate the 15th year of Village Camp – A Community Camp in which children of different ages come together to learn to live in harmony with each other and nature. Children participate with the staff in a daily routine of homesteading chores such as animal and garden care, snack preparation and campfire cooking. Children are taught in a way that promotes unity, respect and sustainability. Village Camp includes “Community Projects” in which everybody works together to create and complete a project which will enhance the community. Local Artist and Community Leader, Caleb Thomas will return once again to work with the campers to facilitate an art mural project at the camp. Other Activities may include primitive living skills, nature crafts, mountain biking, archery, scout games, fishing and outdoor adventures such as a Graveyard Hike, Treasure Hunts, Scout and Scavenger Missions, Mountain Biking Excursions, and Berry Hunts. At Village Camp parents and family members of campers are welcome to visit us and join in whenever they can. On Thursday evenings, we have a family celebration night, dinner and optional overnight. Village Camp has provided unique and rewarding experiences of a lifetime for many children. We hope you and your family will join us this summer. Camping is available for families at a discounted rate during the camp session.
