First Camp is for campers going in to grades 2, 3, and 4 along with a parent/guardian.
June 4-6, 2022
This two night session is basically a mini-version of our longer sessions packed in to a weekend. First Camp introduces children and guardians to sleep-away camp, and specifically to the Camp Hardtner summer camp experience–one of the best around! Children stay in cabins with their counselors and cabin mates and begin creating bonds that can last a lifetime. Guardians also stay in cabins separate from their children, and participate fully in the daily camp activities and be campers themselves.
Our hopes are threefold:
- guardians and children enjoying the shared experience of a weekend at summer camp
- exposing the child to camp to better prepare them to attend the longer sessions
- giving guardians a taste for Hardtner to better prepare them for their child being away for the longer sessions
First Camp is a great way to kind of test the waters for both your child AND you. You will be as much of a camper for the weekend as they will!
