Main camp (divided into Raptor and Explorer groups based on age) is our traditional seven-day summer camp program for children ages 8 to 12. It is called main camp because it is located in the central or “main” portion of Camp Lakewood. Upon arrival, each camper is welcomed by our caring staff and introduced to their cabin mates for the week. They receive a tour, take their swim test and sign up for their clinics. Swimming ability and age pre-requisites apply for some of our activities. The campers also gather as a cabin each day to play, learn, bond and make life-long friendships. Campers also get the opportunity to play all-camp games, unit games and do cabin activities. Each cabin will also venture into the outdoors for an overnight, where they sleep under the stars and cook meals over a campfire.
