Acorn Program (Ages 6 - 8)

Acorns, our youngest campers, are teamed with their cabin counselors for the entire day and follow a pre-scheduled program in the morning and afternoon. The program allows the chance to participate in a wide variety of offerings within a positive and supportive setting. Activities include our climbing wall, outdoor adventures, swimming, arts and crafts, animal care (bunnies!), 1000 foot zip line and more. Every week, Acorn campers embark on a field trip and experience an overnight campout in our Geodesic Dome. Acorns are also eligible to enroll in our horse riding lessons.

Explore the Camp

Our location has been described by many as breathtaking. As you follow the trail through the riverside meadows and across the bridge you come to our “camp village.” Here you will find our office, health center, dining hall, cabins, art center, and a host of recreational and training facilities such as our sports fields, basketball court, bike skills park, equestrian arena, pond, climbing walls, challenge course, swimming pool, and more. Beyond the camp village is where much of the magic takes place amongst the meadows and endless forest. Savoring a freshly picked carrot from our gardens or taking in the view from the high meadows on a mountain board run are long remembered. It is here where the fundamental joy of being a kid is all the excitement that is needed.

A Typical Day at Camp

When building Camp Hidden Meadows’ daily program, we chose a schedule that balances both structure and freedom. We have ample time to play as well as to build skills, and our goal is to offer activities intended to spark the creative spirit. Morning workshops allow in depth exploration and skill building through participation in the same activity each day. Afternoons include a wide variety of activities and an opportunity to try something new for one period. Afternoons are also when our Out of Camp Trips and New Adventures happen! Small class sizes and our desire to offer some of the familiar along with the spectacular continue to make our program unique and memorable.
