Thursday Optional Overnights
Available to 3rd-12th Graders who are enrolled in camp each week.
Weekly themes for the after-dinner activity vary week to week and will be communicated earlier in the week. Campers are encouraged to make or bring costumes, props, or musical instruments. They can also work on these early in the week at the Creative Cabin.
Includes an extra choice of the instructed camp activities before dinner and an open play time after breakfast.
The overnight also includes great camp food! Thursday Dinner, Friday Breakfast, and Friday Lunch are part of the overnight package.
Staff managed bedtime wind down and overnight supervision.
The Overnight Fee is $110.
Boys and girls are organized separately along with the others in their group. Sleeping arrangements are in cabins, the Lodge, on the covered deck, under the Gymnastics Pavilion, or in "Tent City" by the Family Tree. Everyone is provided with either a bed, a gymnastics mat, or a camping pad for sleeping "slumber-party style" on the floor, deck, or ground. Counselors supervise each group continuously.
The Camp food is superb! Thursday night's dinner and Friday's breakfast and lunch are hearty and kid-friendly.
*With prior notice, vegetarians can be accommodated. However, if your child has food allergies or other dietary restrictions, please send special food(s) for your child.
The after-dinner event includes costuming, making props and decorations, food and activities in theme. The theme is announced early in the week for that week. Some exciting ones are: Capture-the-flag, Disney Characters, Pirates and Ninjas, Camp Olympics, Super Heroes, Harry Potter, Predator v. Prey, Clue the Game, Happy Birthday America, Around the World ... Cast your vote, we'll make it happen!
Early registration is not necessary. You authorized your camper’s participation in all Camp programs including the Overnights when you completed and signed the online camp registration form. Just send your child with their overnight things and check-in at the sign-in table at North Boulder Park. You may send a check, card or bank account will automatically be charged if your camper spends the night.

Any Overnight Needs
“Our daughter had a ball! She is a pretty quiet kid, not much of a risk taker and we were shocked that she felt safe and excited about the overnight. She loved her counselor and everything about camp. Kudos to you and your staff! See you next year!”
- HW, Parent
"She experienced being away from home overnight so successfully because she felt safe- both in the physical structure of the Ranch, but also in the care of trusted adults. I think she would stay year round if that was a possibility!"
- Frost Yarnell and Marla Slade, Parents
