SPECIALIZED SUMMER CAMPS

Specialized Summer Camps

 

Eagle Village does summer camp differently. Unlike other summer camps, our counselors and staff use techniques specific to kids with past trauma and emotional impairments to deal with:

  • Troubled teens
  • Defiance
  • Extreme anger
  • Depression
  • Bad attitudes
  • Kids that experiment with self-harm

We use our activities, like climbing rock walls and hiking in the woods, to serve as intervention for troubled teens. Our wilderness experiences teach natural consequences, decision making, trust, perseverance, and goal setting.

We are not a boot camp and we are not a traditional summer camp. We are a camp where any kid, regardless of their struggles, can find their own success.

Financial assistance is available through Adoption Subsidy and limited scholarships. The scholarship application can now be completed as part of the registration process, or may be completed using this pdf form and turned in to our camp registration team.  Some programs are Youth In Transition and Respite eligible. Call 231-305-6561 or send us an email for more information.

Note- due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, our camp schedule has been modified.
