Mini Camp allows adults to create their own custom summer camp experience that’s as active or relaxing as you would like. We’ve got lots of activities to choose from, so every day you can do something different! You can hone your horsemanship skills the whole time, or you can ride in the morning, go for a bike ride in the afternoon, and try something new the next day. The choice is yours!

Were you ever in the Corral program? We’re hosting a Wrangler Reunion this year during Mini Camp. Register for Mini Camp today to reconnect with past corral alumni.

Mini Camp for Adults Mini Camp for Adults

“[We] had a great time participating in so many activities offered in the loving, supportive atmosphere of a Christian Science community. We hiked, biked, rode horses, peaked Huron and loved the flag ceremonies each day…. It was great to reconnect with camp.”
–Mini Camp participant

If a one week program is a little long for your schedule we also offer a half week program, but be aware – once you’re here it’s hard to leave!
