Boys Learning to Camp

Woodsmen Program

Develop Outdoors Camping Skills

Fun is the focus for these first-time Hayo-Went-Ha campers. Woodsmen enjoy the many in-camp activities that we offer. They are introduced to camp craft skills used in the outdoors. An overnight campout in the camp's caboose followed by a day trip canoeing on the Jordan River are planned for these campers.

Our staff that interacts with the Woodsmen are specially selected for their proven ability to work very well with younger boys. Parents tell us they love the letters they get from our Woodsmen campers, and our regular web photo updates keep everyone in the family informed of the latest fun-filled action in the Woodsmen Program.

Our staff focus on fun, safety and creating a solid cabin group in the cabin. The Woodsmen campers get to enjoy all that camp has to offer.  The Woodsmen 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 along the way.
