School Notes

  • We serve:
  • Boys between the ages of 10-15
  • Boys unable to control their anger
  • Parents who feel like their son is going down the wrong path and the whole family needs support.
  • Boys who are struggling with authority figures.
  • Boys who need to improve peer relationships.
  • Boys who need intense adult male role models and relationships.
  • Boys who seem to be emotionally depressed.
  • Activities: Campers and their chiefs plan daily activities. They build their own living shelters, cut wood, cook meals two days a week, sort laundry, care for equipment, maintain trails, plan trips, and have fun. Group games, fishing, swimming, crafts and personal time fill their weeks, providing a well-balanced program.
  • The program is COA Accredited.
  • The average boy gains two years academically in one year at camp.
  • Chiefs: As authentic, adult role models, chiefs wear many hats – from counselor to friend to teacher. Solid values and strong standards are the backdrop of a chief’s life. Chiefs become deeply involved, daring to change and grow themselves, to help the boys succeed.
