Life at Summer Camp

The first afternoon of camp, parents register their children, seek out their assigned cabin and claim a bunk bed. Many children often spend their first nights away from home at summer camp. When parents drive away, the adventure of summer camp begins.

Summer at Camp Wartburg is a busy time. We understand that you want to know what your child is up to, so here is a glimpse into an average day in the life of a camper. Note: Younger campers tend to have an earlier bedtime.

Activities are based on your camper’s program. For example, Paintball goes offsite four of its five weekdays at camp, whereas Forts, Fantasy and Fun stays onsite all week.
