Boys & Girls in Grades 6-8 | January 13-15, 2023
Camp Susque's Frost is a co-ed winter camp that runs three days and two nights (Friday Evening - Sunday Evening) over Martin Luther King weekend. Frost is designed just for 6th-8th graders, and gives them a chance to bond and play while experiencing Susque in the winter.
Well-screened, trained counselors guide campers in small group discussions, games, outdoor activities, and community life in the lodges. Many of our Frost campers enjoy the board games, storytime, rec room, and if the weather permits, ice skating on the pond and sledding on the Tube Chute. The Frost is also enhanced by a special theme that will drive the weekend's activities and add fun, exciting elements. And, of course, every Frost camper loves relaxing by the roaring fire in the dining hall and sipping on a mug of our endless hot chocolate!
Campers will hear from a Chaplain picked especially for his skill as working with this particular age group. In addition to the speaker sessions, campers will participate in worship and family groups. Family groups are led by a counselor and provide a small group context for campers to discuss their thoughts from chapel. One of the key features of the weekend is something we call "Staff Stumpers." This intentional, popular evening activity affords campers the opportunity to anonymously ask any question they want of our staff. Of course, the full range of silly questions are sought out, but many, many serious discussions have ensued during this thought-provoking time.
