Register before May 1, 2020 for a $35.00 discount!
Two trip guides, seasoned and trained in wilderness leadership, facilitate positive group relationships and a new appreciation for God, creation, and your value in it on these week-long adventures in the Adirondacks. Form closer bonds with your friends as you spend the week with 5-9 fellow adventurers, cooking your own meals, and sleeping in tents. Beaver Camp provides all necessary food and camping equipment, except sleeping bags. Each trip is rated for difficulty. One boot is about as rigorous as a resident camp experience, while five boots is quite rigorous and will include several miles of paddling or hiking, transporting all gear, and breaking and setting up camp each day. Please choose a trip that best fits your camper’s level of fitness. Custom adventures are also available for your private group throughout the year!

For those sending multiple children to camp, we offer a maximum household rate of $1,030 per family.
Did you know? We set rates as low as possible to keep camp affordable. This is made possible because of generous donors to Beaver Camp. The true cost of a week of wilderness camp is $892 (based on 2019 expenses).
