There’s LOTS to do
65+ daily activities…
Fun Summer Clinics!
Clinics are FUN! and a great way to learn a lot in a couple days! AND, for first-time campers, they’re FREE!!! All you have to do is complete the clinic form (click here), attach it to the enrollment application (click here), and act before the application's expiration date. Clinics are open to all ages and skill levels but space is limited, so don’t delay!
Clinics are specially staffed, concentrated instructional programs designed to focus the camper’s attention and time on improving a specific set of skills. Certain clinics are an outgrowth of programs already operating on a daily basis. These clinics are offered to provide campers, with strong interest, an opportunity to become immersed in the activity (2-4 hours per day) with the purpose of producing more advanced skills in a relatively short period of time. These “outgrowth” clinics would include the Competitive Tennis Clinic, the Equestrian Clinic, the Skate Clinic, the Cheerleading Clinic, the High-5 Basketball Clinic, the Hip Hop Clinic, the Golf Clinic and the Circus Show Clinic.
Other clinics feature activities and instruction in skills not offered in the camp’s regular daily activity program. These “special skills” clinics include Spy Camp, Survival Camp, the Dee Jay Clinic, the Rock Band Clinic, the Paintball Clinic, and the Horse Care Clinic.
No matter what clinic you choose, with everything we’ve got going on at camp this summer, you’re guaranteed to have lots of fun!

- SPY CAMP -
Scheduled Every 2 Weeks
You are a SPY and you have a mission!
But First You Need the Training...
Agents receive training in martial arts, code breaking, surveillance techniques, survival training and undercover maneuvers. Then we move on to the ATV 4-Wheelers to train our agents in safe evasive driving techniques... which might be necessary if a mission requires a quick getaway! Additional training on our high and low ropes course prepares our recruits for those harrowing high altitude missions. Then it’s over to the water for training in the operation of Jet Skis! The final exam for inter & senior spies involves a recon and rescue practice mission which includes training in paintball combat tactics. It’s high octane FUN!
Then the Mission
Your mission will require you to conduct surveillance, make and break secret codes, uncover important secrets, interrogate persons of interest and hunt for a mole within your ranks!
It’s a role-play adventure you’ll never forget! Spy Camp teaches physical skills, teamwork and critical thinking within the framework of the fascinating field of espionage. Training sessions are organized by age. There is no minimum age requirement except for paintball which is limited to campers entering 5th grade and older.
