Campers who attend our two-week sessions spend one or two nights at our Shaver Island Outpost. This is a highlight of camp for many of our campers. Shaver Island offers the ideal setting for campers to learn and hone their waterskiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding skills. With eight ski boats, nine experienced instructors, and hours of time behind the boat, campers learn and improve their skills rapidly during their stay at Shaver.
While on Shaver, campers have the opportunity to build friendships with campers in other cabin groups. The nightly campfire at Shaver is at a big campfire pit, where all the campers and counselors gather around to sing songs, tell stories, and play games. Camping on the beach and falling asleep watching the shooting stars are also memorable experiences from their stay at our Shaver Island Outpost.
Many returning campers choose to spend an entire week at Shaver Island in addition to their two-week regular session by participating in one of our Shaver Water Sports Specialty Camps. These three-week sessions are offered at the beginning of the summer (Session 5: June 21 – July 27, 2015), with the Shaver week at the beginning of the session, and at the end of the summer (Session 6: August 9-29, 2015), with the Shaver week at the end of the session. There is also the option to attend just the one-week at Shaver Island. This is not recommended for campers who have not already attended a regular session at Gold Arrow Camp, as campers do not experience any of the activities and special events offered only at our main camp location at Huntington Lake.
