Adventure Overnight Week (AOW)

Adventure Overnight Week is just that – an exciting adventure for boys and girls, 2nd through 5th grade! A fun filled event with just the right mixture of challenge, AOW is for campers graduating 1st through fourth grade this year. The 4 days and 3 nights spent at AOW will be the best four days of summer fun you could imagine and it will give you a peek at what it’s like at overnight summer camp. The activities are planned specifically for Campers and will greatly aid the volunteer Leader in helping energetic campers try new skills in the out-of-doors. AOW gives campers the chance to earn activity pins and have a great time doing it. It’s also camping out, in a safe and pleasurable environment to ensure that our Campers have a fine camping experience. In the great outdoors, campers and leaders will gain experience, knowledge, and self-reliance with the help of a trained camp program staff.

Our AOW is lead by a trained Camp Director and Program Director who are certified by BSA’s National Camping School.
