A week at youth camp can have an incredible impact
Fort Wilderness is an ideal resource for your children and students. Our programs are designed to allow campers to experience independence and take age-appropriate steps of maturity in a caring environment. Youthful games and running around are encouraged. Learning to tie knots replaces the video game console. Fire building-with staff supervision-is a great training activity. And tied in with everything is spiritual teaching that makes a week at camp eternally valuable.
Youth camps at Fort’s Adventure Outpost and Lab sites are a highlight of the summer! Attending a youth camp is a unique opportunity to set aside a week, or more, that can shape the trajectory of a student’s life today for eternal impact. (Youth camps available for those entering 3rd grade through high school.)

Childhood is not what it used to be. At one time, at least in our memories, being young was a time to get dirty in the mud, make forts with sticks, create secret handshakes and more. Technology, concerns about our kids’ safety along with other influences have changed our outlook. Is there a place for your kids or students to succeed and grow? Whether you’re a parent or youth leader, the challenge to develop the next generation is real and exhausting. You have a partner in us!
