Description
The USS KIDWELL has crashed on Kidwell Island, and we have to figure out how to survive!!! This week will be a fun experience learning to build campfires, create nature shelters, exploring the forest, identify plants and animals and learn out to “live of the land.” Don't forget, everyone will have a chance to tent camp on Kidwell Island (weather permitting) as well as enjoy all our traditional camp activities. Pack your bags, but be sure to bring your swimsuit and life buoy, coming ashore can be a little rough and wet!

4-H Camp Kidwell offers week long(Sunday 6:30pm to Friday 2pm), traditional overnight camp sessions for children ages 7-16. These sessions allow campers the opportunity to enjoy traditional camp activities like swimming, canoeing, drama, crafts, sports and games, ropes and archery as well as other activities such as large group games, campfire, nature exploration, friendship building and much more.

Each Session has a theme that allows the campers to enjoy something different and exciting each week. These themes are also shared in the activities the campers enjoy. IE....during wet and wild week, campers may make a boat in crafts and have a race, but Shipwrecked week campers might make a picture frame out of nature items. We also have special events during each week based on the theme. IE....a Mad Scientist will join us during Mad Science week to lead experiments and encourage to explore in the activities they do.

During traditional overnight camps, campers will not be be able to choose horseback riding as one of their daily schedule activities(to work with horses each day, please register for a Horse Crazy Camp) but they will have a chance to sign up to ride during free time once or twice during their stay.

Campers are assigned to cabins based upon age. Each cabin will have at least 2 staff members and up to 9 campers. At least one staff member in each cabin is an adult. Cabinmate request are accepted, but we can not guarantee campers will be bunked with more than one other camper.

All staff members must attend our staff leadership training and go through our leadership training before they can work with our campers. Staff members who are 18 or older have background checks performed and all staff members provide references and go through an thorough interview process.
