Boys were created by God to be boys, and Fort’s Boys Camp celebrates and cultivates that.
Challenging boys to be all God created them to be, camp is the perfect mix of fun, adventure, teamwork, competition, sports, play, and growth. Give your boys the ultimate summer experience at Fort’s Boys Camp!

Horsemanship Classes and Lessons
Horsemanship Classes and Lessons are an optional add-on for Boys Camp. Fort Wilderness is a member of the Certified Horsemanship Association and we follow their standards and techniques in order to promote a fun, safe, and educational experience. Classes are spread out over four days, weather-permitting.
RODEO GAMES (+$150)
Cowboy Up! This class offers a chance for campers to learn about the fun sport of rodeo. Each class is one hour of mounted games and learning skills needed for rodeo life, such as barrel racing skills, roping, and much more.
TRAIL CLASS (+$110)
Designed for the weekend rider, campers are on a horse for approximately 45 minutes per day in God’s creation. Some riding instruction is given, such as crossing trail obstacles, controlling your horse at different gaits, and basic horse info. It’s all done in a laid back, fun Fort way!
We welcome your family to drive your child up to Fort, take a tour, and meet your counselor. New in 2024, Fort is helping to connect families to arrange a carpool – learn more here: transportation
