Summer camp at The Clubhouse is the place for fun, friendships, and exploration. We offer theme-based experiences in age-specific activities in which campers learn life skills while enjoying traditional camp fun.

A week here provides both indoor and outdoor activities. And to make sure campers get the most of it, we group campers by age to support their growing ability to make choices, work with others, and assume responsibilities. Look for our seasonal camp calendars that are published weekly with details of field trips and projects.

SPECIALTY CAMPS

The Clubhouse offers unique and exciting opportunities for teens:

STAT (Selfless Teens Addressing the Times): encourages youth (grades 6-9) to be leaders in their community by giving them an opportunity to learn about a variety of organizations that help meet the needs of the homeless, hungry, poor, and sick, locally, nationally, and internationally.

CIT Camp: The Counselor in Training program is designed for youth ages 15-17 years who will learn about age-appropriate activities, discipline, and supervision, safety and handling emergencies, health and sanitation and parent partnerships. CIT’s will be paired with a group of campers along with a Clubhouse counselor who will monitor and mentor them throughout the week. CIT’s will be responsible for following their counselor’s directions while assisting with a group of campers.
