Junior Woodcraft Camp (ages 7-9)

Boys and girls, ages 7 to 9, are invited to experience Woodcraft Camp -- junior style!
This four-day camp runs as close to the real experience as possible, revealing the fun and excitement of our day-to-day programs at Culver Woodcraft Camp.
Junior Woodcrafters follow a similar structure complete with activity rotations, free swim, evening activities and leadership opportunities.
Junior Woodcrafters are split by boys (Chipmunks) and girls (Hummingbirds) in our cabins on our beautiful Culver campus near the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee. Our 4-to-1 ratio provides the safety, leadership and supervision younger campers deserve from a world-class camp program.
