CAMP DARK WATERS
What we're all about...
Resident (sleepaway) camp for boys and girls 7 to 14 offering one and two week sessions. Since 1928, fun and learning have begun just as soon as a camper's feet hit the ground at Camp Dark Waters. Here Children find new freedom to just be themselves. Freed from the stresses of so many 'ought to' and 'have to' elements in their young lives, campers have a say in how they plan their days. They may choose familiar pursuits or try out new ones. They like the idea that no day is exactly like the one before or the one after. Our skilled counselors and administrator staff members are mostly college age men and women who share a love of the outdoors and a deep enjoyment working with Children. Their diversity provides an added level of enrichment to camp life. Camp Dark Waters is proud of its 4:1 camper to counselor ratio and over all 3:1 camper to staff ratio. Much like a family - a big family - Director, Travis Simmons, his staff and a team of counselors interact closely with all the campers on a personal level. Financial assistance available. Retreats & conferences accepted.
