A variety of outdoor activities occur at Camp Whitney. Each activity is designed with the age level of the camper in mind. Where campers were not previously exposed to the activity, we will enable them to learn. As always safety precautions are in place to ensure that Campers are not placed in any difficult situations. Our outdoor activities include
This is open for junior to senior campers. Campers are required to wear personal flotation devices (PFD’s) and a lifeguard will watch over campers. Staff who have been trained in canoeing allow campers to enjoy this activity.
The noble sport of archery is available for Junior to Senior campers. This sport helps the hand eye coordination of campers and also enables campers to enjoy the outdoors while developing new skills.
Campers will be allowed time to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach. A lifeguard is always on site while campers are in the water or on the beach front.
A number of fun outdoor games are organized during the camps. These games enable campers to have fun but also allow campers to work together. We take full advantage of the outdoors and allow the campers to run, shout and use their energies while enjoying the outdoors.
What is camp without a camp fire? What is a camp fire without the smell of marshmallows roasting, or the scent of outdoor cooking? At Camp Whitney we have outdoor cooking and camp fire for all camps. They are times to have fun, enjoy good food, participate in some camp fire songs, hear good stories and have beautiful fellowship with other campers.
Walking along a lakeside or backwoods trail lets the campers experience Gods creation up close and personally.
