Session Description

A week of camp with no middle school boys around! Discoverers will have fun creating keepsake crafts and work as a team to overcome our low-ropes challenge course. They'll learn how to cook over an open camp fire and pick up some basic how-to skills for around the home making these girls a step above the rest.

Even though this week is packed with activities, there is always time to lay out at the beach or goof around on the floating water mats. Friendships made with campers and conversations with cabin counselors during this session will last a lifetime. There are interactive chapel sessions and cabin group discussions based on a teaching theme from the Bible. All teaching is designed to be applicable for campers from all walks of life and set them up for success.

All Phantom Ranch staff are screened then trained in our child protection policies as well as helping campers conquer homesickness.

She continually rethinks the session making it fresh every summer.
