Overview

The Summer Trails Traditional Camp Program for children ages 3-14 is the definition of fun! We continue to create new opportunities for our campers to stay involved, have fun with friends, and experience camp to its fullest.

Activities include group sports, creative arts activities, swimming, and unique games that encourage children to express themselves as individuals. Our program is altered daily to emphasize maximum participation and bundles of fun while catering to each group’s dynamics as well as the daily weather. Each and every day at camp is unique and special.

Our mature, caring, and skilled staff provides campers with an environment that allows them to feel challenged and grow.

Our equipment and programming is diverse in order to be developmentally age appropriate for each child’s skill level, emotional ability, and physical strengths.

    Leadership in Training Program

    Summer Trails offers a Leadership in Training Program (LIT) to children age 14 who have previously been Summer Trails campers. This program has 3 focal points:
    1) leadership training
    2) working hands on assisting with a camper group and
    3) the opportunity to play.
    This program is specifically designed to provide an enriching leadership opportunity while balancing good old camp fun with a chance to demonstrate responsibility. These campers complete the program feeling prepared to be hired as Assistant Counselors the following summer.
