Sanborn Junior

A Camp Adventure for 1st - 4th Graders

The 15-day Sanborn Junior program provides outdoor experiences and challenges appropriate for younger campers. Boys who attend Sanborn Junior live in a bunkhouse at Big Spring while girls live in a cabin at High Trails. Junior campers participate in a wide variety of outdoor activities with their own counselors and cabinmates. They join older campers in the lodges for meals and participate with the entire camp community in special events and many evening programs.
