Voyager Camp is designed as a transitional program for young campers, advancing them from day camp without creating the pressure that an overnight trip can bring. Campers ages 11 through 13 will be able to take their first step toward becoming an independent adventurer through the guidance and support of the Camp Massasoit staff.
Throughout the two-week session, campers will participate in on-site skill development and take off-site day trips to further their knowledge, skills, and awareness of the outdoors. Through such education-based trips, campers will continue to hone their team-building and communication skills, while simultaneously increasing their knowledge of the environment. Each session has a pre-designed theme that introduces campers to safe and progressively designed adventure-based activities. Voyager Camp is open to 12 campers per session and follows our regular two-week day-camp schedule.
Session 1: June 25-July 6 (No camp on July 4)
The basic skills of rock climbing will be developed throughout this session. Day trips will give campers the opportunity to challenge themselves through bouldering and top-rope climbing around western Massachusetts.
