Camp Highlander offers a multi-session discount (varies), active military discount (10%), and alumni discount (5%). A sibling credit is also available for the second, third, and fourth child enrolled from the same family. These credits do not apply to any of our Family Camp Sessions.
If you’re looking for a camp experience longer than one week but you aren’t quite ready for our three-week Session C and the intensity of Color War, one of our two-week sessions might just be the perfect fit!
Session A kicks off the multi-week sessions at Camp Highlander. At two-weeks long, Session A allows campers to participate in all of our on-camp activities, various off-camp trips, a cabin overnight and some of our most exciting evening programs!
Session B is identical to Session A in its programming and scheduling, but it also features our biggest party of the year … the Fourth of July! From our Stars & Stripes competition to our cookout on the field, we pull out all the stops to celebrate our nation’s birthday in spectacular fashion! We even conclude the festivities each year with our highly-anticipated annual fireworks show!
While off-camp activities such as whitewater rafting are limited during these mid-length sessions, A and B still provide the most incredible experiences for new campers and returning campers alike. Whether it’s your first taste of a multi-week session or you’re a seasoned veteran, our two-week sessions provide lifelong memories and friendships that will have you counting down the days until next summer!
Session A: (June 14-26) - Cost: $3,600 (Girls Wait-List, Boys Open)
Session B: (June 28-July 10) - Cost: $3,600 (Wait-List)
Session C is our longest and most intense session of the summer. It offers two full weeks of activities including various off-camp adventures, cabin overnights and our most electrifying evening programs! The most exciting highlight of Session C, however, is one of our oldest Camp Highlander traditions … Color War!
During the four-day, camp-wide competition that is Color War, all of camp (campers and counselors alike) is split between two teams (the Red Devils and the White Knights) to compete in a variety of events – from board games and dance routines to relay races and rope burning! With sporting events, educational events, arts events and more, every camper has a chance to participate, contribute and enjoy the fun!
Session C: (July 12-31) - Cost: $5,050 (Open)
Kick Off Camp offers the best of the best at Camp Highlander! A great introduction into camp life, Kick Off Camp packs all the fun and excitement of our longer sessions into one incredible week that is easy on schedules and budgets alike!
Kick Off Campers do not participate in camper choice days or our off-camp and overnight trips, but do enjoy nearly all of our on-camp activities including the high ropes course, canoeing, kayaking, riflery, archery, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, arts and crafts, zip lines, the infamous BLOB and much, much more! Join us for one unforgettable week!
