Camp Ondessonk Mini Campers
Camp Ondessonk Mini Camp: (Session I- Wednesday June 6th-Saturday June 9th; Session II- Sunday July 1st-Wednesday July 4th)
This summer, we will be offering two sessions of our Mini Camp program, a special three day, three night session for younger campers aged 8 & 9. It is the perfect way to give campers an introduction to the Camp Ondessonk tradition of rustic, nature based camping in the Shawnee National Forest.
The Mini Camp schedule includes horseback instruction and riding, handicrafts, boating, swimming, archery, evening campfires, skits, and lots of singing. All activities are modified to best serve the mini camp age group. With one Ondessonk counselor for every three or four campers, mini campers receive nearly constant guidance and companionship from our caring staff. Incidentally, many of our staff members were once mini campers.
Mini Camp Explorers: (Sunday June 3rd-Saturday June 9th)
Mini Camp Explorers offers adventurous 8 & 9 year old children an extended experience building upon our popular Mini Camp offering. By popular request, young campers will spend the entire week discovering all of the Camp activities and traditions so beloved by campers over the past 52 summers.
Explorers will enjoy nature walks, horseback instruction and riding, handicrafts, boating, swimming, archery, campfires, structured social time and skits while living in a communal setting designed to develop social skills and build friendships. Mini Camp Explorers will be led by a specialized staff equipped with the counseling skills to best serve the mini camp age group and introduce campers to the wonderful world of outdoor, week-long sleep-away camp.
