Junior Middler Two July 8 – 14, 2012
This is a camp for students entering grades 3 – 8 in the upcoming school year. The camp is designed with two age groups in mind. While we share many common activities, such as morning activities, meals, worship and campfire, other parts of the day are specific to each age group. Typically, we have a group for students entering grades 3 – 5 with a second group entering grade 6 – 8.
In this way we are able to design program to “fit” student skills and abilities to the level they are at. Further, it creates an environment that assures each camper will get to know the others in their age group. Our camps usually have an enrollment of about 50 students or approximately two smaller groups of 25 (this can change depending on the age of who registers). This creates a genuine “family” feel for our campers and also leaves room for large group experiences with music and worship.
ChristianFormation: Exploring and experiencing the Christian faith has been the central theme at Camp Marshall since 1947. The central event at Camp Marshall is Holy Eucharist at our beautiful outdoor chapel. This has become the hallmark for participants at Camp Marshall.
Program Activities: Campers will enjoy sports of all kinds including swimming, kayaking, fishing, sailing, a challenge course, hiking, Frisbee golf and nature activities on our 29 acres along the shores of Flathead Lake. Arts and crafts, songs, drumming and skits allow for creative expression, and a variety of games that teach life skills. All of our programs are age appropriate. Registration info. Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-enrolled basis. Your deposit will be deducted from your registration fee. Early registration is suggested to ensure space is available for you or your child. There is no deduction or refund of fees for late arrival or early departure. Final payment is due 14 days before the program begins. Program participants are accepted without regard to race, color, national origin, or religious affiliation. The Camp/Youth Director welcomes the opportunity to discuss registration for those with disabilities or special needs to aid in providing a complete experience for all our participants.
Deposit (will be removed from the balance): $35.00 Program Fee: $315.00 $325.00 after Saturday December 31, 2011 Scholarship Assistance is available: No one will be turned away for lack of money.
Summer Program Staff: Camp Marshall leaders are 18 years or older and chosen for their maturity, skills, patience, enthusiasm and desire to be a good role model for children. Each staff member undergoes professional training prior to the camp season, emphasizing safety, group dynamics, child growth and development.
Safety is our priority: At Camp Marshall the health and safety of each camper is our primary concern. Our staff-to-camper ratio is 1:7. Each volunteer leader is trained in safety and prevention. A qualified first responder is always available. In the event of emergencies we transport youth to the hospital in Polson, which is only 12 miles away.
