Fun, Comradery, and the Chance to Make Lifelong Friends
Campers head to the St. John’s recreation center every evening. There, they can socialize and enjoy entertaining activities with others, giving them the chance to build camp comradery and friendships that will last a lifetime.
They also enjoy field trips — in the past, these have included trips to the President Eisenhower Museum in Abilene, a Kansas City theme park, Kenwood Cove Water Park, Rolling Hills Zoo and Museum, a major league baseball game, and a weekend of camping.
At the end of the summer, campers participate in exciting competitions. These competitions let them show off all that they’ve learned over the course of the camp, distinguish themselves from their peers, and display their physical and mental strength as well as their character.
The Military Stakes Competition includes:
- Army physical fitness test
- A combined academic exam
- Rifle competition
- Tug of war
- Room inspections
- Intramural events
- Platoon drill competition
