Water ActivitiesLay Back And Float Or Row a Boat

Swimming

As long as there have been summer camps, there have been fun, water activities. Swimming is a tradition that not only cools you off on a hot, summer day, but it also helps campers develop athleticism, leadership and team-building skills.

The pool at Sacajawea Day Camp is overseen by certified lifeguards and each camper is individually tested to make sure they're always in safe water.

Boating

In addition to pool swimming, campers also have the opportunity to experience other water-based activities on Brindle Lake. Canoes, paddleboats, kayaks and other watercraft are available for campers to use. A trained counselor is on the water at all times, making sure everyone is following safety guidelines.

Why Sacajawea?

Sacajawea Day Camp is a lot of fun. But, it's fun with a purpose. Through camp, children are exposed to ideas and information that will make a difference for the rest of their lives. It also teaches three basic, yet important skills.

Courage

Camp is a community unlike any other. Together, in what begins as an unfamiliar setting, campers find the courage within themselves to meet new people, make new friends, and bond together. Thereafter, camp becomes both familiar and comfortable; it's now the place they want to be.  As they make choices and direct projects, girls learn to work well with others, become self-reliant, and develop their leadership skills.

Confidence

For many campers, Sacajawea Day Camp is their first experience away from parents, away from home, and away from familiarity - even if only for a day. Camp becomes their safe haven, where they unleash their unlimited potential, and where they develop the confidence they need to face any challenge.

Character

Camp is the ultimate character-building experience. It is a safe place to learn individual responsibility, to become empowered and to take care of oneself. Though camp counselors certainly provide structure, guidance, and supervision, a camper is responsible for her actions throughout the day, while assuming responsibility for personal belongings and making budget conscious decisions at the camp store, often for the very first time.
