MCC’s Junior Week is co-ed, for rising 4th through 6th graders, and is structured and action-packed!

JUNIOR OVERNIGHT CAMP WEEK (for rising 4th-6th graders):

From the time the Junior camper arrives on Monday morning until they depart on Friday (5:00 pm), they will experience a week like never before. Our commitment to small groups allows counselors to get to know their campers individually.  Dedicated counselors will lead their cabins in various challenging and rewarding activities that will help instill teamwork, cooperation, and group appreciation. Campers will stay in our brick cabin buildings, which are equipped with a window air conditioning unit. Each cabin will have up to 10 campers plus the college-aged counselor.

Activities campers will experience throughout the week: flag raising, silly morning exercises, personal quiet time, team building activities, cabin clean up time, skills classes, morning chapel, pool time, cabin v/s cabin recreation games (kick ball variations, gaga, soccer arena games, playground), 48 foot climbing wall, skits performed by MCC team, campfires, paddle-boating, swim competition, canteen, large group games in the evening and Water Game Day (water trampoline, BLOB, water obstacle course).

Skills Classes: Campers will choose skills classes on Monday morning after orientation.  Some of the skills classes include: fishing, riflery, archery, canoeing, model rocketry, outdoor cooking, outdoor survival, various crafts, box car making & racing, acting, sling shots, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and more.  Campers will get two classes, that they will attend daily.

Camp Store and Canteen: MCC’s store will be open during the week during free time for campers to visit. MCC’s canteen will be open once in the afternoon and once in the evening daily.

OVERNIGHT CAMP DETAILS will be available online as time nears concerning what to bring, camper communication, online camp bank, online photo gallery, dress code, lost and found, and more.

MCC does not have a Junior Day Camp Week. All Junior Weeks are overnight, Monday morning through Friday afternoon.
