About our camp
A camp friendship that lasted for a lifetime lies at the foundation of Skylemar. Lee and Herb knew first-hand the transformative impact of a quality camp, so they decided to nurture the same relationships in the camp they founded.
Most of the Skylemar staff has been working at the camp for long years. A prospective staff member should prove that he or she can be a role model for boys – a condition every instructor and counselor should meet to become a member of Skylemar family.
5-8 boys live with their counselors in more than 25 cabins with bathrooms and electricity. Cabin life is full of fun and learning – a new card trick or playing a song on the guitar can be learnt overnight.
At Skylemar boys not only have ready-made, healthy food, but also cook themselves. The freshly-picked berries from the nearby garden go into tasty cookies campers bake and enjoy together.
Camp programs & activities
Here is the list of activities campers can choose from while being in Skylemar: watersports, lacrosse, hockey, football, baseball, golf, tennis, soccer, basketball, archery, and crafts. A challenge course, overnight trips, campcraft activities enhance boys’ camp experience further by developing essential personal and social skills. Every single activity is there to help boys build character, compassion, independence and leadership for many years to come.
