Your child will gain an appreciation for the outdoors at Camp Weber. Campers will be placed in units according to the grade that they will enter in the fall. Within each unit, smaller groups are made up of 10-12 boys and girls. Groups spend the first half of the camp day together. After lunch and LOGS (Lots Of Great Stuff!), each camper chooses an activity of interest where they spend the rest of their day.

CAMP WEBER HAS A NATIVE AMERICAN THEME
The units are:
NAVAJOS Ages 6-7
The youngest unit is a joyful beginning to day camp for younger children. Each day of camp is filled with the excitement that comes from trying new things!
Daily schedules provide a balance between active and quiet play and group and individual activities.
MOHEGANS Ages 8-9 yrs
Our more experienced campers will enjoy new challenges and new excitement. Emphasis in this unit is on increased self-confidence, encouraging others, responsibility, and cooperation within the group team. Mohegans may also choose their activity of interest in the morning as well as in the afternoon, as they are now a little older and more experienced Navajos.
CHEROKEES Ages 10-12 yrs
This unit features a specially designed program featuring “tracks.” Campers choose their activity of interest in the morning and afternoon. Tracks are designed to be progressive and challenging. These may include leadership and service learning, nature and outdoor skills, sports and fitness, music and drama, and creative arts.
