At the original barn and small lake, boys aged 7–12 make their own camp schedules, choosing from outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, canoeing, nature study, a low-ropes challenge course, archery, and crafts. At the Chincapin Equestrian Center, girls aged 8–12 learn the basics of horseback riding and barn management, as well as climbing and backpacking. They can also participate in the same outdoor activities as the boys' camp. Each day of camp lasts from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Red Oak Camp
Red Oak Camp has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a barn and boys' summer retreat in 1947. Today, the staff organize old-fashioned, weeklong outdoor adventures that help boys and girls—in age groups ranging from 7 to 14—develop cooperation and leadership skills and an appreciation for nature. At the original Red Barn boys’ day camp, counselors watch over campers as they fish and canoe in a pond, practice their aim on an archery range, test their coordination on a low-ropes course, and stockpile candy bars for the winter. At the equestrian center, girls learn the basics of horsemanship and barn management and frolic in their own playing fields and activities center. Older children may leave camp for backpacking trips, and even the younger visitors may embark on flora- and fauna-identification hikes or pitch tents and sleep under the stars.
