Classic Camps

Each day, campers get four, one hour focused activity (also known as skill) sessions which are selected when they check in at camp. It's a traditional Ranger experience, but there are still new surprises and a unique experience for each camp.

Add Fanatic options

Fanatic options maximize skill time for Classic campers at our teen summer camps by replacing some of this time with their chosen Fanatic activity. Simply choose a classic camp, add a Fanatic option, and enjoy! Options vary from week to week.

  • Horseback Riding Fanatic
    For campers who want to learn more about equine care and riding technique — whether they've never ridden a horse or have years of experience!
  • Paintball Fanatic
    Our diverse courses and excellent instruction will take gameplay beyond the next level. Experience five afternoons of intense challenges and fun on our vast paintball field.
  • Watersports Fanatic
    Wakeboarding, wake skating, wake surfing and beyond! Whether campers are experienced or new to these sports, Watersports Fanatic pairs fun instructors with a world-class tow boat.

    Ever have the desire to place paint on canvas? With Artistic Painting Fanatic, campers will spend five afternoons with our skilled instructor.
  • Wild Fanatic
    Featuring tasty outdoor cooking in a prime location nestled in our camp’s back country, campers will learn how to canoe, make fires and more. This option replaces all normal camp activities.
  • Fierce Fanatic
