What is Father/Son Weekend?
It is the best weekend of the year! Every summer begins with a group of 160 dads and sons coming up to camp! Boys ages 4-16 join their dads on Thursday afternoon and enjoy non-stop fun through Sunday morning.
What will the boys do at camp?
Anything they want! The program includes some all camp activities like capture the flag and relay races. We will all play in a Father/Son Green & White Color War. We’ll have free time so the campers and dads can explore all the camp activities. The waterfront, target sports and the climbing wall are open all weekend. And every night we will have a campfire down at Sand Lake with s’mores and banana boats!
How are the cabins assigned?
The dads and boys sleep in the cabins together. In the past, it has been through a combination of requests and camp matching up boys of similar age groups. For 2021, we ask that each group tell us who will be in your cabin.

We are requiring vaccinations for all adults (dad/grandfathers) that are participating in Father/Son this summer. This means that you are 2-weeks clear of the second dose of Pfizer/Moderna, or 2-weeks clear of the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine. If you are not vaccinated or cannot get vaccinated (for medical reasons or otherwise) please reach out so we can discuss. We will ask for proof of vaccination prior to arrival.
