Camp session spotlight: Session 2 for 3-6th graders

Our youngest campers love to go fishing, explore the farm, and create in the Arts Center. This camp is an ideal introduction to sleep-away camp! The Christian formation program engages these camper’s natural sense of wonder, imagination and play.

Welcoming campers entering 3rd-6th grade in 2018-2019 school year, this shorter, four night session is intentionally planned for our youngest campers to get acquainted with Procter youth camps, for many it is their first time away from home. The camp staff designs the program for shorter attention spans, with lots of activities along with good rest times built in, as well.

The Chaplain for Session 2 is the Rev. Maggie Leidheiser-Stoddard, Rector of Christ Church in Springfield.

Session 2 will be held Learn more at http://proctercenter.org/project/youth-camp/
