Activities at our Camp

    For over 75 years the Odd Fellow and Rebekah Camp has been committed to providing a safe, healthy environment where children can make new friends, create life-long memories and experience the great out-of-doors beauty of the camp.  Over the years we have introduced enrichment programs in partnership with our State of Michigan Camp Consultant and Licensing Director.  Recently we have introduced two highly effective programs that allow the campers to learn while they are having fun.  The programs are designed to help them understand making good decisions and working as a team.

    The Six Pillars of Character (Fairness, Caring, Citizenship, Trustworthiness, Respect, and Responsibility) are used as a foundation for the week of camping.  The staff refers to these characteristics throughout the week and some children receive awards based on their exemplification of the characteristics during the week.

The activities that are available to the camper are varied and are structured to allow the campers to be a part of the decision making process of which activities they will do. At the beginning of each day the cabin makes a group decision on which of the available activities they wish to participate in for that day. The activities listed below are some of the choices available:

Arts and Crafts
Canoeing
Swimming
Archery
Aqua Jump/slide
Hockey
Riflery
Snorkeling
Kayaking
Volleyball
Basketball
Nature Trails
Obstacle
Course Softball
Soccer
Dancing
Drama
Karaoke
Stump Ball
Shuffleboard
Chalk Drawing

 

Our staff works hard to provide a wholesome, positive summer camp experience for your child where they can learn about themselves and others and begin to define their place within our world. Many of our staff return to their same positions each summer bringing with them their learned experiences and new, fresh ideas for the current camper season.
