A full-week camp for campers aged 8 - 18.
Our Traditional program is the foundation of Nuhop's summer program. There is an emphasis on positive social-emotional experiences so campers may build communication, cooperation, and independence skills. This week is filled with outdoor adventure on and around our gorgeous 33-acre campground. The traditional camp offers a week of adventure in which campers hike the two nearby state parks, spend time in the water (swimming, tubing, slip ‘n’ sliding, and canoeing), and so much more! Camping under the stars, cooking over a campfire, playing lots of games, arts and crafts, and more are all part of the camp experience.
Campers are grouped according to chronological and developmental age, allowing for more challenging adventures to be accomplished by older campers (such as longer hikes, stretching their limits, and participating in our giant swing.) As we put together camp groups, we look at age, abilities, and number of times at camp to determine what activities are best for that group to participate in!
Nuhop Jr. Camp
A half-week program for campers aged 6-8.
For our youngest first-time adventurers, children ages six through eight, we offer Nuhop Jr. This half-week experience is a great building block for future success by practicing new skills and learning camp expectations in a less intensive environment!
Campers will participate in a half-day hike in nearby state parks, go swimming and canoeing, and engage in many other Traditional Camp activities. Campers will experience an overnight under the stars not too far from the comforts of their cabins and begin learning about the magic of Nuhop. Young adventurers will come away with an understanding and comfort with the out-of-doors, increased independence, and a boost of self-confidence.
A half-week program for campers aged 9-12
For some of our campers, a full week of camp can be an intimidating first experience away from home. For campers aged 9-12, this half-week experience is a great building block for future success! Campers will get to experience hikes, swim times, canoe adventures, and a campout under the stars. Counselors will work with campers to build skills that will help them conquer a full week experience, such as independent skills, social communication, and teamwork!
