Cookout days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Groups will cook out a simple lunch like tacos, camp pizzas, hot dogs, mac & cheese etc. Cookout days give campers the opportunity learn fire safety, cooking skills, teamwork and food safety.
Frog and Turtle Race
Every Wednesday Campers and Staff participate in a Frog and Turtle Race. Throughout the week, campers take care of any frog or turtle they find at camp. Campers may bring a frog or turtle from home. Camp DaKaNi is not responsible for a pet that is lost while at camp. Any frog or turtle caught at camp, must stay at camp.
Every Friday afternoon after camp is cleaned up, any camper who would like to may participate in a water fight. Older and younger youth will have the water fight in separate areas. Large cups, or bottles work the best. Please do not bring water guns.Your child clothing will be dirty and wet. Please bring extra towels during pickup or send your child with an extra change of clothing.
Council Fire is held at 10:30 am on Friday. Parents are invited to join us to celebrate a fun and successful week at camp. We will hand out activity awards and each group will be recognized. Enter Gate #3 (entrance with the large Camp DaKaNi sign) and park on the large field near the pond. You will be directed to the Council Fire area. Please wear flat, comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. The ceremony will be held outside. A complementary hot dog lunch will take place after the ceremony. Parents will also have an opportunity to see your Camper’s “Home in the Woods.” We encourage all campers to stay after lunch so they can help their group clean up their “Home in the Woods” and participate in the end of the day activities. If your child has purchased a camp shirt, please have them wear it on Friday for Council Fire.
Our camp store is open daily. We have t-shirts and items to remember your camp experience. You may put money in your child’s online account or send child with cash or check.
