Traditional Camp provides an opportunity for campers to participate in the wide range of activities offered at Camp Roger, including mountain biking, archery, hiking, arts and crafts, orienteering, outdoor cooking, theater and so much more! We love traditional camp because it offers the best "all around" camping experience! This is the kind of experience residential camping was made for!  As an added bonus, you can connect any traditional camp session with any other camp session with a weekend stay over to DOUBLE the fun!

LITTLE ROGERS

Ages 6 – 7  |  $225 per session (only available for sessions 1, 2, 8 & 9)

Little Rogers are certainly the cutest campers on the mountain. Designed for our youngest paticipants to get them acclimated to camp life, Little Rogers is a one night, 2-day experience at Camp Roger for explorers ages 6-7 years old. Check in starts at 9:15 am on Thursday mornings and check out is with the rest of camp at 6:30 pm on Friday evening. This camp is the perfect experience of summer camp for first-timers! To keep them extra safe,  Little Roger's will not participate in any swimming or activities involving horses - but trust us, there’s SO MUCH fun to be had! (FYI: There is no transport option for this camp)

MINI CAMP

Ages 7-8  |  $385 per session (only available for sessions 1, 2, 8 & 9)

Mini Campers will participate in archery, arts and crafts, cook-out breakfast, and dinner, fire building, circus, nature, and orienteering. While we believe Mini Camp is the perfect opportunity for first-time campers, we are sure they’ll return home ready for so much more time on the mountain!

ADDITIONAL CAMPS AT YMCA CAMP ROGER

 

LEADERSHIP CAMPS

YMCA Camp Roger’s leadership programs are designed to progressively develop our young camp alumni from a “rising star” in to hopeful camp staff applicants. This year we are significantly raising our game with off-site backpacking trips, a detailed orientation, team building and supervised experience within the camp program as mentors or leaders to our younger campers. Our goal is to challenge each individual to think of the bigger picture (what it means to be a leader) and how that relates to themselves, the team, camp and their home life. We believe this experience could be life-changing and  give direction for the years to come!

RISING STARS

14 year olds  |  $600 per session

Created with 14-year-old campers in mind, Rising Stars will experience their favorite camp activities in the afternoon with an increased emphasis on leadership development, team building and adventure in the mornings. While on the mountain, campers will take major steps to develop their leadership skills and identify their leadership style while working as a team on and off the campsite. We expect Rising Stars to engage with all campers by leading songs, helping around camp, and being a role model. While this program may be different from past years, we are confident it will elevate their camp experience.


LEADERS IN TRAINING (LIT)

Ages 15-16  |  $750 for a 2 week session (only available during sessions 2 & 3)

This two-week specialized staff-training program for 15 or 16-year-olds is exactly what it sounds like. Hands on leadership training that teaches campers the necessary skills and responsibilities to be a YMCA Camp Roger staff team member in the years to come! LIT’s participate in leadership development focusing on team building, cooperation, and supervision. Additionally the team will be planning and implementing a two night, three day backpacking trip in the Uinta’s with our Leadership Specialists. These campers will work side-by-side with staff members to gain skills in managing group behavior, leading activities, and supporting the staff.

Riders will be exposed to all aspects of working with horses, program development,teaching young riders how to be safe when horseback riding, and properly caring for the animals.

The CIT experience is designed for 16 or 17-year old campers to refine leadership abilities through continued development of skills, a significant off-site overnight experience and hands-on work experience in programs and cabins. In the first week of the program CIT’s will reflect on their previous years at camp while developing goals for the future, continuing to develop their leadership styles and planning for the second week off-site adventure. The second week will consist of a multi-night adventure off camp that will aim to challenge the individual and team with a detailed debrief and plan for the last week. In the last week, the group being involved in leading program activities while supervised by the camp staff team. As a nationally ranked leadership and community organization, this YMCA leadership development opportunity is transferable to almost any future work experience including college applications.
