Camp Blessing Winter Retreat FAQS

We offer classic summer camp activities, including any combination of the following: swimming (weather permitting), horseback riding, archery, arts & crafts, fishing, canoeing, rock-wall climbing, tandem zip line, a giant swing, team sports, messy games ect.
Campers will not have phones or other devices. Campers can be reached by contacting the adult chaperones or contacting the Camp Blessing office. With the growing presence of digital engagement we are asking our campers to unplug.
