Each week, campers are able to choose from 6-10 different clubs. Clubs allow campers to pursue an activity that they are especially interested in and continue to develop that skill everyday that week with the same instructor and same group of campers.
At Camp Eagle Ridge, we are very intentional about the way we teach leadership. Leadership workshops are interactive experiences that focus on creativity, decision making, problem solving, leadership styles, communication skills, caring for others, goal setting and more. The workshops are very hands-on and game and activity driven. Campers are busy doing…creating…building…exploring and experiencing.
Beyond the leadership workshops, leadership is the focus throughout our activities. For example, canoeing is the perfect time to talk about partnership. We can stress the importance of communication during basketball. While skill development within the activity is important, we put emphasis on leadership development through our activities.
All Camp Activities
Every night, the entire camp comes together for an all-camp activity. This includes: Theme Nights, Capture The Flag, Choose Your Own Adventure Night, Overnight Tent Trips, Talent & Skit Shows and the Friday Night Dance.
4th of July at Camp Eagle Ridge
The 4th of July is one of our favorite days at Camp Eagle Ridge!
In the morning, we take part in our town’s celebration by participating in the Bellringer Walk/Run – a 2 mile walk/run to support the Mellen Library. Since we believe in healthy living and reading, this is a perfect fit! Campers and staff can either participate in the Bellringer Walk/Run or enjoy the morning with our staff at the local park where they can cheer on the runners/walkers. Afterward, there is a celebration outside the library and ribbons are awarded for 1st-3rd places in each age category.
In the evening, we enjoy the Mellen 4th of July Fireworks display!
