Camp Carter Offers: Overnight Camp, Day Camp, Retreats and horses. Overnight Camp is for boys and girls ages 7-16. Overnight camp runs from early June through the beginning of August. Campers share living quarters with other children in their age group, learning about responsibility while developing social skills. There are both 1 and 2 week sessions available. If you are 16 or 17 we offer a fantastic teen leadership program, CIT (Counselor in Training). Day Camp is for boys and girls ages 5-12. Day Camp runs from the first week of June through the middle week of August. Day Campers get to experience all the great activities of camp, (plus a cooked lunch and afternoon snack) before going home at the end of the day! We offer a different theme each week so that campers who come throughout the summer have a unique experience each week. If you are over 12 and still want to take part in Day Camp, we offer a service-oriented teen leadership program LIT (Leaders in Training).
