Mini-Camp Explorers offers adventurous 8 – 10-year-old children an extended experience building upon our popular Mini Camp program. By popular request, young campers will spend the entire week discovering all of the Camp Ondessonk activities and traditions so beloved by campers over the past 60 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 staffed 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.  Register for Mini Camp Explorers
