Gold Arrow Camp’s Mini Camp includes one-week of traditional camp fun at GAC, including nightly campfires, all at our beautiful lakefront location on Huntington Lake. Mini Campers will try a variety of Gold Arrow Camp’s extensive activities, including sailing, kneeboarding (wakeboarding and water skiing for those campers who participate in early morning or free time activity periods), rock climbing, ropes course, archery, and riflery. Due to the short duration of the session, not all camp activities can be offered. Mini Camp is a great introduction to resident camp for first-year campers and a fun week of camp for experienced campers who can’t fit a two-week session into their summer.  Click here to learn more about Mini Camp.
