After School Day Camp

Our campers and summer staff members are back in classrooms and dorm rooms, exploring new places, meeting new friends, and using the skills they have learned at camp. They are probably showing off their new tie dye or lanyards, maybe making a meal but this time on a stove not a campfire, looking over pictures of new friends and staying in touch.
Here at camp we are in full swing of Outdoor Education! We have an amazing staff here spending their days teaching pond studies, leading night hikes, and of course it wouldn’t be camp without the camp songs. Each week Camp Killoqua invites a new group of 5th-6th grade students to come and learn about the environment and enjoy camp.
New this fall, camp is starting an After School Day Camp. This program is for elementary aged children and runs weekdays here at camp. Our focus is to give kids the opportunity to spend time outside all year long. All the great camp activities like boating and archery will be included in this program, plus a curriculum based off of other Camp Fire programs. For more information visit our website at or give us a call at 425-258-5437.
Another exciting group that is spending time here at camp this fall is Teens in Action. We have Horizon Teens in Action for high school aged campers and Discovery Teens in Action for middle school aged campers. Both groups are for volunteer opportunities in the community and here at camp. The groups are working together for the next project which is a bake sale and fall activities at Jammin Jamboree. If you are interested the next meeting is here at camp October 23rd from 2-4pm.

It’s hard to say goodbye to sunny summer days but here at camp we embrace the new colors of fall and the chance to test our rain boots.

Session 8

This week at resident camp the theme is holidays! Monday we celebrated Valentine's Day, Tuesday was the 4th of July, and yesterday it was Halloween. There was a great All-Camp last night called the 12 days of Killoqua in which the cabin groups saved all the holidays from going gray. Remember to wear your green today for St. Patrick's Day!
We have a lot going on this week with our specialty camps. We have Archery camp where the archers are learning and practicing their skills everyday. Culinary Camp made Nutella Crepes and waffles this morning. They are having such a great time in the kitchen. Horse camp is going well as the horse campers learn new riding skills.
This week in day camp the theme is mission impossible! All the day campers are solving mysteries and having a great time swimming, arts and crafts, and games.

Happy Holidays! WoHeLo

Summer Session 6

It's a sunny Tuesday afternoon here at Camp K by the lake. We have just started session 6 for the summer. Our theme this week is pirates! Already, there has been hidden treasure deep in the lake, eye patches, and pirate stories created by the Whulje campers.

Last night, we had a great skit night out at council fire. There were funny skits in which water was poured on different staff members (Nacho and Komodo are great sports) and of course banana/bandana. We also had a few songs (one created by the CIT 2's) with guitar's. Oh, and last night there was also a few magic tricks by Woodchuck (CIT 1).

Tomorrow, everyone here at camp is looking forward to All Camp! This week we are having All Camp down at the waterfront
