Camp is a place where lifelong friendships are made.

Summer Camp for Kids

Our Summer Camps are geared to be a fun, safe, and yet active experience for all ages of campers. Counselors are on duty 24/7 and stay in cabins with their campers. They spend the whole camp with these cabin groups, participating in activities and leading small group sessions.


Because of COVID-19, extra precautions have been added to our camp procedures. Before registering for camp, please consider if you or a family member are part of a vulnerable population. Please stay home if you or a member of your household are sick.

  • Campers will not be permitted to leave camp for outside activities and then return.
  • There will be no day camps this year for Rookie Camp.
  • Face coverings will be recommended for camp staff and counselors at camper check-in and check-out, and required for staff serving food.
  • At all other camp activities, masks will be optional since our activities are outdoors or physically distanced and organized by dorm groups.
  • Parents/Guardians of campers who will be under the care of Prairie Camp staff will be allowed to walk with their child and their counselor to the assigned dorm, however parents will not be allowed in the dorm.
  • There will be no closing program this year.
  • Extra sanitation measures will be expected of campers and maintenance crew. Hand sanitizers will be available at gathering areas.
