Sand Dunes

Boys Adventure Sleepaway Camp

A GREAT TIME is the statement we hear over and over again from our Pathfinders. This group expands their knowledge and enjoyment of group living while tackling greater challenges in camp craft. Staff concentrate on developing camper's personal growth and comfort in outdoor living.

As mental and physical challenges become greater, so must personal awareness and our staff seeks to instill the qualities necessary to become better young men.

Although in-camp activities still comprise most of the stay, a three day/two night Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes base camp/hiking expedition gives these campers the thrill of climbing a 450-foot sand dune.  The Pathfinder Program is also available in a 4-week session. Please note that the trip and activities will be repeated but with different staff, cabin mates and the opportunity for the campers to provide leadership and insight on the trip.
