2022 Camp Registration is Now Open!

Camp dates are July 25-29th!
Please go to our Registration Information page to sign up online.

Hello Camper Families! We can't wait to see you at camp. We have had to raise camp tuition fees this summer, to $200 per first child and $150 per each additional sibling. We hope that you understand our need to keep up with the rising costs of...well, everything. However, the good news is that we definitely still have scholarships for campers in need. Our goal is to make sure that every single kid who wants to come to Pioneer Camp will be able to come. Please see our Scholarships Page for more information.

For a detailed description of each focus group, please see below:

Art

Get ready to get messy!

Art activities for Pioneer Camp 2022 will include mural painting; finishing the mural that was started last season on metal container, wrapping around the side and doors, as well as creating an art piece to hang in Glover with a theme of inclusivity. Campers will also explore printmaking; experimenting with natural materials as well as linoleum plates and screens. Students will have the opportunity to print on t-shirts, fabric and homemade paper.

Archaeology

Step Back in Time!

Learn to help carefully and responsibly excavate an archeological dig site with Ms. Sarah! Campers will be digging in the actual cellar hole of the original West Glover tavern, owned by Hannah and Ralph Parker, the settlement's original founders! Last year, campers found shards of pottery that still had the paint on them, nails, fireplace hooks, and kitchen knives! It's the closest you'll come to time traveling!

Carpentry Basics

Old-school building meets newfangled tools!

Work with a team of professional carpenters to learn tool safety and basic carpentry skills while working on actual projects around camp. It's a useful skill to have!

Stones and Bones

Life in the old cemetery!

Join Glover's very own official Cemetery Commissioner, Joan Alexander, to learn about the history of the West Glover Cemetery and it's most famous occupants, as well as how to care for and maintain old gravestones. Miss Joanie has even been known to let slip a really good local ghost story or two, so sign up if you dare!

Trail Building

Life in the old cemetery!

Help Peggy, the Glover Trails Committee, build and maintain recreational trails throughout the West Glover settlement, and perhaps beyond, that can be enjoyed by hikers and cross-country skiers for generations to come! Be part of something that lasts.

For all campers going into 1st and 2nd grade!

Our youngest campers spend the afternoon with Ms. Leanne and Ms. Nicole reading stories, singing songs, playing games, doing arts and crafts, and getting an up-close, hands-on look at local flora and fauna.
