For Mom’s, the daunting task of filling up the summer schedule is upon us. Will Johnny go back to day camp, will Susie take swim lessons, where are we going on vacation, and how will I make sure the kids aren’t bored this summer? At Camp Harrison we have been busy planning a productive, fun, adventure filled summer since the last kid went home last August 6th.
You will find Camp Harrison’s sleep-over camp just 90 minutes from Charlotte. There are over 2,000-acres of woods, streams, trails, and a lake for your kids ages 6-16 to experience a mountain adventure. They have customized many tracks to make sure that there is something for everyone. Camp Harrison is run by incredible Charlotte Smarty Mom, Denise Hammond – if you haven’t had the privilege of meeting Denise, it’s a must. She is the most energetic and enchanting woman you’ll ever meet – you’ll be BFF’s at hello!
There is something for the kid looking to wiz down the zip line or climb the rock wall at Traditional Camp. Or maybe your child is in love with horses and wants to know what it is like to live on a farm, they might choose to participate in The Dude Ranch. Do you have a kid that loves to help you in the kitchen? Send them to the Farm to Feast track where they will learn how to harvest the organic garden and prepare meals. Do you have a child that loves hunting and fishing with their Dad? They would love the Sportsman track!
Do you have a teen that needs to get out of your house this summer? At Camp Harrison we know that teenagers will rise to meet expectations that are set for them so we set our expectations high. Through programs like Beyond the Ridge, Counselor in Training and Vet Camp, we guide our teens as they navigate our mountain on how to become our future leaders, become open minded team players and become closer to God.
If your kids have never been to sleep over camp before, we urge you to check out our Mom & Me half week program where you can actually come to camp with them. We built this program because we know what a big decision sending your child away by themselves for the first time can be. You may also want to come check us out for yourself at one of our Women’s Wellness Weekends, where you and your friends can experience our mountain on a trail run before your kids do!
Every program at Camp Harrison has a purpose and is founded in the Christian principles of the YMCA. It is not only a place for kids to have fun but it is also a place for them to grow in spirit, mind, and body.
We encourage you to consider helping us fill your summer schedule with an enriching experience at Camp Harrison. Please visit our website, www.campharrison.org, if you have any questions or call us at 1-800-514-1417.
