Family Camp

Family Camp is just what it sounds like – Camp fun for the whole family!

We welcome families of all sorts. Aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, grandparents, godparents, family friends – anyone who wants to share Camp with people they love is welcome to join us! This retreat is for children school-age (kindergarten) and older.

Family Camp is a great way for parents who are interested in sending a child to Camp DeSoto to give her a taste of Camp and try it out for themselves. Its also a fun chance for DeSoto campers to share what they love about Camp with the entire family.

Are you a Camp DeSoto girl who only has sons? Bring them to family camp to show them just what it is you loved as a little girl! Have you never been to Camp before, but want to have a fun family weekend (planned by someone else!) before the summer ends? Come on!

Each family is assigned a cabin for the weekend, and Family Camp follows a schedule much like that of the summer.

You can choose from lots of fun activities, including Horseback Riding, Swimming, Canoeing, Ropes Course, Hiking, Tennis, Climbing, Creative Writing, Crafts, Nature, Biking, Fishing, Archery, and more. At the end of a full day, everyone will be lulled to sleep by the sound of crickets and frogs and mountain breezes.
