Our Shaver Watersports campers (AKA "Shaver Squad") headed to Shaver Lake this morning and are already out on the lake enjoying hours of water skiing, wake boarding, and kneeboarding!
The Shaver Squad will spend the next four days at our Shaver Island outpost camp. They'll head back to main camp on Thursday afternoon and join the Mini Camp campers for Big Campfire (skit night) on Thursday and our end of camp celebrations on Friday - our Banquet, Dance, and Appreciation Campfire.

A highlight of the two-week session for our youngest campers (grades K-3), and their version of “backpacking,” is Bears’ Adventure. This one-night trip allows campers to experience sleeping outdoors under the stars and cooking over a campfire. Campers’ luggage is taken for them to the campsite, so they are not technically “backpacking,” because they have no pack to carry. With just their water bottle and their positive attitudes, they set out from camp singing and talking on their hike.
The best part of Bears’ Adventure is the free time kids get to play and explore the area. For many campers, the longer sticks provide the perfect start to a fort. Others enjoy laying on their sleeping bags talking with friends or silently watching clouds move overhead. Some participate in crafts and games while enjoying being outdoors. For many of these kids, Bears’ Adventure is their first experience “roughing it,” and they absolutely love it.
When they hike back into camp the morning after their Adventure, our Bears’ campers stand a little taller. And their dirty, smiling faces are the best indication that they have experienced the awe of nature.
