Our 4 C’s are the cornerstones of our program.

Camp Dogwood provides stimulating, hands-on lessons, allowing campers to take an active role in their education. Lessons focus on critical thinking and exploration in topics including: reading, writing, analysis, leadership, community service, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). Campers participate in one field trip per 2-week session and are visited by guest speakers.
Traditional camp activities
Campers are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of traditional summer camp activities such as art, swimming, tennis, sports and games, cooking, music, dance, and storytelling. Campers help feed the farm animals, maintain clean camp grounds, and spend time in the camp’s garden. Through diverse, cross-curricular programming and a dedicated staff, we aim to make Camp Dogwood a place of growth, excitement, and fun.
