Intro Camp

Intro Camp at HoneyRock

Dates: June 18-23, 2018

For students entering 3rd - 5th grade

This program is specifically designed for children entering 3rd-5th grades who are going to overnight camp for the first time. Many parents use this shorter session for their children who have not been away from home for a significant amount of time and need an introduction to camp. Campers will get a taste of camp life, try a wide variety of activities, and become prepared for longer sessions. The goal is for campers to move to 12-Day Residential Camp after one summer of Intro Camp. If ready, we encourage 5th graders to register for 12-Day Residential Camp rather than this shorter Intro Camp session.

We strongly encourage families to attend Family Day at the end of their camper's session. Getting to the Northwoods of Wisconsin can be a small trek - let us help! Find more information about best routes, lodging, and camper transportation from select cities. Questions? Ask your Program Coordinator, Bryce Zeigle at bryce.zeigle.honeyrock@wheaton.edu.

Elements of Intro Camp

Campers may have the opportunity to trek to one of our nearby moonlight adventure spots including Does Acres, Trapper's Den, Beaver Island, and more!

Our Intro Campers visit ALL of our activity areas! Since most intro campers are new to HoneyRock, they have fun and play at all of the activities as a cabin. These activities include: archery, riflery, canoeing, wilderness skills, rock climbing, mountain biking, horsemanship, drama, crafts, ceramics, waterskiing, kayaking, and more!

Campers will serve each other, clean their cabins, set tables, and participate in other small service projects.

Campers will develop skills in personal responsibility and independence through their daily tasks and cabin life.

Campers will engage in experiential daily lessons and daily worship sessions based on the week’s spiritual theme.
