Family Camp

 Family Getaways

Get ready, party people! Family camp is shifting from Family Retreats to Family Getaways! The health and safety of everyone (campers, families, volunteers and staff) remains our top priority and we’ve developed a new way to have fun at Camp! It’s about your family being at Camp and spending time together.

During Family Getaway Weekends, we will offer 12-16 campers and their families time to connect away from home as individual family units with intergenerational activities and the spirit of Camp Boggy Creek. Each family will have a private camp experience with the opportunity to choose activities and to participate in some favorite Boggy Creek traditions. Each family will stay together all weekend long as they make creative arts projects at their cabin, play miniature golf, and try some new-to-camp outdoor activities. Meals will be delivered to each family’s cabin, and we’ll have fun on cabin row!

To continue to keep everyone safe, respected, and loved, we will be practicing COVID-19 precautions, including; social distancing, wearing masks, and having all group activities outdoors. We will maintain strict adherence to CDC guidelines as well as guidance from the American Camp Association, the SeriousFun Children’s Network, and our local and state governments. All of us will need to follow the new rules and regulations to keep each other safe.

Family Retreats

Family Retreats are currently on hiatus as Camp hosts Family Getaways.  (See above.)

During weekends in the spring and fall we welcome 32 campers and their whole families to camp where parents can relax and find needed support among other families dealing with similar emotional and financial challenges. Brothers and sisters get to participate in the same fun-filled activities since every family member is considered a camper during family weekends.

With the support of our volunteers, each family is paired up with a family pal, who acts as a host for the weekend. Depending on the family’s needs, family pal responsibilities can include greeting families upon arrival, touring them around camp, joining family members in camp activities, playing with the children when the parents are in parent-only activities, helping the family with any needs that arise, and generally helping them to have the best experience possible.

 

"What makes Camp Boggy Creek so incredible is that we can all be OURSELVES. We don't need or feel like we have to hide our scars, we can be silly, we can express our thoughts and feelings without being judged."
- Lisa, Camper
