Imagine spending a week making friends, trying new things, and spending almost all your time outside. At Hantesa, that’s exactly what our resident campers experience! They spend their days building skills in areas like archery, outdoor living, arts and crafts, nature, and sports and games. All this is facilitated by our well-trained, compassionate staff. In the evenings, they participate in group games or activities, and tie the day together with a counselor-led ritual or reflection. Fun, friendship, and growth await your camper this summer at Camp Hantesa.
Camp Fire’s overnight Teen Programs provide opportunities for teens to develop their leadership and outdoor living skills through longer overnight sessions and more challenging activities. Detailed descriptions of each program are provided below.
Big KYDs is a long standing tradition at Camp Hantesa for campers 18 and older that want to Keep Young Dreams.

Help us continue the tradition of camping this summer, remember the times you’ve had here, and make some new memories!
