New Camper Weekend

New Camper Weekend 2024

Ready for Summer Camp? Let us help you find out. New Camper Weekend is for current 3rd through 6th graders on March 2-3, 2024

The best way to know if camp is right for your child is to try it out! At Jacobs Camp, we have a FUN one-night New Camper Weekend Program for current 3rd through 6th graders that is the perfect introduction to sleepaway camp. Your child will get a taste of Jacobs Camp in action– eating camp food, sleeping in a cabin, and being a part of our Jacobs Camp Family!


In the 24 hours your child spends at camp, they will get to try the best of our camp activities. There are so many fun things to do at Jacobs Camp, and we are going to jump right in! From the Art Room to the sports fields campers will try out some favorite activities and enjoy eating in the dining hall with an after-dinner dance party followed by an awesome evening program. Our very best counselors – all experienced in working with campers in 3rd through 6th grade – will be on hand to make sure your child feels welcomed into our community and has a safe, fun time.
