Trip, Swim, Canoe, Sail,
Hike Along the Open Trail…

Enjoy the great outdoors! Make lifelong friendships. Choose your own schedule. Become a tennis player, paddle a kayak, paint a watercolor. Build a campfire or swim! Take a trail ride. Ski. Go on a hike or canoe across the lake. Pick up a guitar! Laugh with your friends. There are so many things you can do at Clearwater Camp!

Before arriving at Clearwater, each camper completes an Activity Preference form. Schedules are personalized, with time in favorite activities as well as opportunities to try some new ones. During the week there are also “Free Activities,” which include fun choices different from regularly scheduled activities. We believe that it benefits campers to be exposed to a variety of activities, including activities they have never tried before or maybe wouldn’t have originally chosen. These scheduled activity periods are balanced with times the campers can be self-directed, both during the ‘general’ time every day and several free activity periods each week.

Thursday afternoons are special at Clearwater; campers “packout,” spending the entire afternoon on a special outing. Packouts range from biking a nearby trail to strawberry picking to canoeing across the lake. Packouts are rounded out with dinner cooked over a campfire. Special events throughout the summer keep camp busy and exciting, from Christmas in July to our much anticipated Water Ski Show!
