Specialty Camps

Fishing Camp

Are you an expert fisherman who could spend all day by the lakes with your reels? Or are you a novice friend of the fish, who is just beginning to get his or her feet wet in the wonderful world of hooks, lines and sinkers? Either way, you will find an adventure at our Genesee Valley Fishing Camp! Campers can expect the entire Genesee Camp experience with a focus on fishing, spending most of the day wrangling the small mouth bass and sunfish who call our lakes their home (Deller, Miller, George, Redmond, and Russell).

Three sessions of week long fishing camp will be offered in the Summer 2019 season. All ages are welcome to register! Rods and fishing equipment can be brought to camp or will be provided by our team. Cost of camp includes one exciting offsite fishing adventure per week.

Dates: July 8-12 (week 4); July 15-19 (week 5); August 5-9 (week 8)        Cost: $350/week

Outdoor Adventure Camp

“Now I know the secret of making the best persons; It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.” – Walt Whitman

Are you ready to take your camp experience to the next level? Then our Outdoor Adventure camp might be the right choice for you! Campers spend Monday through Thursday night in the fresh, open air of the wilderness around Maryland, beginning at our property in Parkton and traveling close to the Appalachian range. Campers will get a taste of backpacking,  climbing on real rocks, and camp set up/break down. Campers are exposed to principles like Leave No Trace and dive deeply into group team building activities,  also having the opportunity to experience our most challenging high elements on the GV property on travel days (M/Fr). This camp is limited to campers aged 13 through 17.
