Outpost Camp!

OutPost Camp Summer of 2015


Aug. 17th-21st. This year we will sleep-over two nights. Mon. and Tues. we will set-up our OutPost and sleep over Wed. and Thurs. Pick-up will be 10:00am on Friday.

OutPost Camp is for boys and girls, ages 9-14 who love the out of doors, turning a wooded brook side camp into their home, fishing, campfires, cooking, carving with wood, learning survival skills, exploring nature, swimming and making new friends. We plan to be at our OutPost most of the time but this year there will be a surprise of campus field trip. Fishing and swimming will happen at the farm just up the hill from our OutPost Camp.

All meals are provided. Yet, we ask that you bring your own snacks. We will be learning to cook our food over a campfire.

Cost of camp: $235. You are not required to pay until the day of camp. If you pay in full now you get $10.00 off.

A detailed packing list will be sent to you after registration.
