Day Trekkers (entering 5th-8th Grade)
Day Trekkers have the flexibility to create more of their schedule, along with their counselors, to accommodate their group’s interests which can include: climbing the tower, canoe times, specialized activities, or choosing to join all camp games.
Wednesday – Trekkers will be dropped off at Pinicon Ridge Park in Central City. They will spend the day doing adventurous things like climbing the Observation Tower and hiking to the Alexander Wildlife Area or any of the five trails that the park has.
Thursday – Participants will have the chance to sleep under the “Wapsie Stars.” They will have different options for sleeping arrangements (weather permitting), from tents in the Athletic field, open-air cabins in our tree nursery, or sleeping under the stars at Wapsie Star Gazer.
The overnight stay is optional for participants. If you do not wish for your child to stay the night, you will need to pick your child up by 4 pm, and the return time is Friday morning between 8-9 am. Busing is not available on Thursday evening and Friday morning; standard drop-off times are on Friday afternoon.
