Session Descriptions

Two Weeks (Sessions Kickoff, A and B)

Kickoff Ages 6 - 13, Sessions A and B Ages 6-16

If you’re looking for a fantastic camp experience, one of our two-week sessions might just be the perfect fit!

Kickoff is the first of three multi-week sessions at Camp Highlander. Beginning just after the school year ends, campers are ready to get outdoors and just be a kid after the long school year. The weather is perfect in Kickoff camp and is the ideal way to start another unforgettable summer.

Session A is the second multi-week session at Camp Highlander. This robust session 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 Kickoff and 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, Kickoff, 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!
