Traditional Overnight Camp

Kids and teens come back year after year for this six-day overnight camp that emphasizes personal growth through choice.

In the mornings, campers choose activities that interest them such as archery, outdoor living skills and art. Instructors coach them through the week to improve skills and confidence. Later in the day, campers rotate through activity areas to experience all Camp Erdman has to offer including hiking, sports and swimming. Evening activities include campfires, dances and a weekly campout. Campers and their counselors spend one night cooking their own food and sleeping in tents under the stars.
