For 7 – 8 Year Olds

For that first camp experience for the young child, we offer Mini Camp, which has a ratio of one staff per two campers. Cabin groups try out some of the camp’s activities together, but campers also have the opportunity to choose a few activities on their own.  Games, arts and crafts, hiking, nature, swimming and more fill a camper’s day (see below). Understanding that this is possibly a child’s first time away from home, know that our caring staff has them safe and that they will have a wonderful time.

  • The counselor to camper ratio is 1:2
  • Campers have at least 4 chances to swim, if they so choose, in a carefully guarded, safe swimming area with a life-jacket
  • Please see the below links/PDF for a sample schedule of the days and activity offerings
  • Extended horseback riding is not possible for safety reasons

Mini-camp is intended for the first-time 7-8 year old camper who may not be quite ready for a one or two week session of camp.  Seven year olds do come to camp for a week every summer, but please call us to make sure that is a good fit for your camper.  Mini-camp is a brief introduction to Camp Augusta with two nights in the woods and a taste of a few activities.  Please see attachments below for more information.
