What we're all about...
Sangamon - A really different kind of boy's camp! Outdoorsy, old style camp with a progressive philosophy and approach. We're particularly strong in the arts, with 5 separate studios for creative arts. We do mostly individual sports, so boys don't have to be competitive athletes to find a home here. Boys choose for themselves every period, each day. We structure the day with five activity periods, campers choose from 15 activities and trips. 2, 3, 4, 5 weeks, ages 9-15. Sangamon is proud of it's strong international staff contingent from all over the world. Camper/staff ratio is 2:1.Our sister camp, Betsey Cox, is our next-door neighbor. The two camps have near-identical programs, and are owned and run by the same family. We create both co-ed activity opportunities and low-key social events for older campers. The Sangamon/Betsey Cox link offers the best of both co-ed and single gender camping, combining some co-ed time with the privacy and independence of a boys' camp and and a girls' camp.
