JUNIOR OVERNIGHT CAMP WEEK (for rising 4th-6th graders):
From the time the Junior camper arrives on Monday morning until they depart on Saturday, 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. Overnight 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, 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 game (with cohorts) in the evening and Water Game Day (water trampoline, BLOB, water obstacle course).
Skills Classes: Campers will choose skills classes daily that allow them to remain in cohorts throughout the week and will get to do four skills (different days). 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 sign up for skills classes with their counselor, on the first day.
Arrival: Check in for Overnight Junior Weeks is 10:00-11:00 am. No early arrivals please.
Departure: Parents/guardians may pick up children Saturday morning at 9:30 am.
Camp Store and Canteen: MCC’s store will be open during the week for campers to visit. MCC’s canteen will be open once in the afternoon and once in the evening.
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.
At this time, there are no Junior DAY Camp Weeks (for rising 4th-6th graders) planned for Summer 2022.
