These are just a few of the awesome activities our adult campers will get to do while attending our summer camp programs!
Our handicap accessible archery range, and trained instructors make archery possible for adults with any number of intellectual and physical disabilities. Our blind campers often turn out to be our best archers!
A quarter mile of waterfront on the beautiful Lost Lake provides the opportunity for some great water activities! Each week, our adult campers will have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the lake on Grotonwood’s very own pontoon boat! It is a favorite activity for many of our campers and staff!
Each day all of camp will come together for chapel time! During this time there will be fun camp praise songs led by our talented staff members, an introduction to the day’s theme, and a hilarious skit put on by the counselors! Campers are encouraged to sing along, dance, and sometimes even play instruments!
Arts and crafts are a long-standing summer camp tradition and Grotonwood is no exception! During the week, our adult campers will have the opportunity to create artistic treasures to bring home with them!
Campers will visit the camp store each afternoon. Each counselor is provided with a list of dietary needs/restrictions and take campers into the store one at a time to make their selections. Healthy treats are always encouraged, and large purchases (like clothing and stuffed animals) are saved until the end of the week. Camper money is deposited onto a camp store card which acts as a debit card throughout the week.
Swimming & Tubing
Daily afternoon swim time is many campers’ favorite time of day! Our waterfront set up includes a shallow swimming area surrounded by docks, a roped in “deep end”, and a small speed boat for tubing. Campers must pass a swim test before they may enter the deep end or participate in tubing. There is also a sandy beach with seats in the shade for those who wish not to swim.
Grotonwood’s large gymnasium is home to an indoor rock climbing wall with a number of different climbing routes to accommodate various skill levels. Our low “traversing wall” is a great way for campers to gain confidence before attempting a vertical climb. There is nothing better than the smile on a camper’s face when they have faced their fear and conquered the wall!
Each night our energetic resource staff runs evening programs ranging from campfires, to talent shows, to karaoke. Be sure to pack your fancy clothes for our Grotonwood camp tradition- the banquet and Thursday night dance on the last night of camp!
