Camp Programs

  • Kids learn differently when they're away from their parents. Camp Winthers helps kids fully come into their own. If the snow melts in time, our first session will be June 27-July 1. Each week through the end of July we will be offering Outdoor Skills and other specialty camps. We also plan to offer Music camp this summer after missing out last summer. Music Camp is slated for August 1-6. 

    Outdoor Art

    Campers enrolled in this program will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of art techniques while exploring the natural world. Sketching, painting, nature crafts and Native American traditions will all be employed in this Camp Program. Tie-Dying, that classic camp tradition, will of course be part of the program as well. In addition to Art, campers will also participate in the traditional camp activities such as kayaking, swimming, archery, hiking, campfires and more. Please be sure to pack in your child’s luggage at least one article of clothing such as a t-shirt or handkerchief for the tie-dye activity(white cotton works the best). Open to kids ages 9-13.

    Recreation Sports

    Let the Games Begin! This program is filled with fun and competitive sports and games. You will learn the rules and how to play a wide variety of games for kids of all skill levels. Badminton, floor hockey, dodgeball, four square, disc golf are some of the activities you will find at Camp this summer. In addition, you will also participate in all the traditional summer camp activities such as canoeing/kayaking, swimming, archery, hiking, campfires and more. Bring your game to camp and join in the fun this summer! Open to kids ages 9-13.

    Outdoor Skills

    If you love camping and the outdoors, this is the program for you. This program will teach you skills to help you better navigate your outdoor adventures. You will be out on the trail hiking and learning about the outdoors and back in camp you will be honing your skills and even cook a meal at the campfire. Like all of our camps, you will have the opportunity to participate in all the traditional camp activities such as canoeing/kayaking, swimming, archery, campfires and star hikes. Open to kids ages 9-13.

    Music

    We are excited to once again offer our music program at Camp Winthers. The Music Camp program is available to students who have completed a minimum of one year of instruction on a band instrument (brass, woodwind, percussion, strings). Auditions will be held on the first day of camp and final placement determined by grade level, playing ability and the band instructors. Campers will be placed in a traditional concert band and will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of electives such as jazz band, bucket drumming, and Ukulele. As always, in addition to music, campers will be able to join in with all the traditional camp activities such as hiking, canoeing, swimming, archery and more. Open to kids ages 10-17.
