Specialty Programs

In addition to the traditional camp option, Chimney Corners Camp offers a variety of specialty programs. Qualified applicants fill all programs on a first-come, first serve basis. Many are extremely popular, often filling within days of the start of registration. Specialty Cabins may require the investment in additional equipment by participants. Details will be included in the spring mailing.

Construction Cabin

For campers who have finished the 8th or 9th grade, Construction Cabin poses a new challenge to older campers. Participants work toward building a new facility or renovating existing facilities throughout the camps. The program encompasses instruction in hand and power tool use, construction mathematics and basic carpentry skills. Construction campers spend a portion of most days on the construction project and the remainder of the day involved in traditional camp activities. Construction is a physically challenging program, please take this into consideration.

Riding Cabin

Girls who have completed 5th- 8th grade are eligible for the Riding Cabin. The cabin spends their mornings taking part in riding lessons, helping with the stable work and learning about the horses. This includes lessons in English riding with some western introduced. Participants help with grooming, feeding, tacking-up, turn-out, etc. and also learn horsemanship and first-aid. The rest of the day is spent in traditional camp activities.
