Camp code of ethics
We encourage kids to have fun, to respect others, and to communicate. We do NOT tolerate swearing, rude, disruptive, or aggressive behavior. Campers who
take away from other children’s experiences will be asked to leave immediately.
What to Wear
Please wear comfortable clothes for adventuring; T-shirt, shorts, and lightweight trail shoes with good tread. Look at the weather and send your child prepared.
Please mark your child’s items with a name & phone number! We are not responsible for lost or misplaced items but will do our best to ensure that lost items get back to you.
What to Bring (in a backpack)
Lightweight rain jacket
Fleece pullover or sweatshirt
Extra pair socks
What NOT to Bring
** NO ELECTRONICS! Please help us encourage kids to experience the outdoors! Toys and electronics may be taken and held until the end of the day.
Daily Activities will be updated soon!
Climbing & Horseback Riding
Introduction to Rock Climbing as well as a half-day horseback ride on the Galena Trails with Galena Stage Stop Corrals. Bring long pants for horseback riding.
Mountain Biking, Hiking & Scavenger Hunt
We prefer that your child bring their own bike and helmet if they have them. We will have a trailer at the YMCA on Wednesday morning for transporting the
bikes to Galena. If they don’t have a bike they may also use the bikes and helmets we have at Galena.
Leave No Trace, Hiking, Lunch & Awards
At Galena, we try to work with our campers to resolve issues as they occur. For instance, if a child uses bad language our counselors will talk to the child, have the child apologize and warn the child if this continues she/he will be asked to leave. Parents are not called at the first sign of trouble because we are not usually in the vicinity of a phone, and because we believe that teaching children to act responsibly in the absence of their guardians is a crucial part of growing up. If the child repeats the behavior- parents will be called as soon as possible and asked to pick up their child.
