Camp Vacamas’ Teen Camps foster independence and provide challenges matched to each teenager’s individual interests. We offer small, specialized programs with 12 to 24 campers in each group. The majority of our Teen Camps are scheduled in 19-day sessions matched to our Junior Camp schedule. Our Theater Program and our Leadership-In-Training Program (LIT) are both six-week sessions.
Teen Camps are full camp experiences, combining traditional camping activities such as land and water sports, crafts, drama, nature, hiking, cook-outs, and campfires with the special areas of concentration the teenage camper has chosen.
