For Campers Entering 1st-3rd grade.
- June 18-21, 2023 for Boys
- June 21-24, 2023 for Girls
We have added a second session of Young Explorers Camp to accomodate more campers - we want everyone to be able to enjoy this camp! Young Explorers Camp is a safe, interactive program designed to introduce younger campers to the experience of an overnight camp. During the four-day, three-night program, campers participate in many of the same activities as our week-long Boys and Girls camps, including campfires, activity classes*, swimming, snack shop, and an awesome theme meal. Yet, at the same time, it occurs over a shorter period of time which allows your child to ease into the camper experience.
Chapels and Bible studies, tailored towards younger campers, play a prominent role as we strive to introduce each child to his/her Creator. This is all done while maintaining a counselor-to-camper ratio of 1:6, designed to ensure that each camper receives the attention he/she needs to thrive.

"I am glad to have found this camp that is so beautiful and seems to be thoughtfully run and strives to provide an excellent and God-centered experience for young people. I especially love the care you have taken in building Young Explorers Camp as an ideal introduction to overnight camp, complete with moms and dads as counselors! I look forward to our kids returning for many years."
"We wanted to give our daughter a taste of summer camp and Camp Susque's Young Explorers Camp was perfect for that. We were so glad it was just a couple days because we weren't sure she would be happy with a whole week. At the closing service on Saturday morning, she found us and said 'I don't want to leave!' She had such a spectacular time and we are so happy."
"My 7 1/2 year old daughter had a wonderful experience at Camp Susque's 4-day 'Young Explorers Camp.' She can't wait to return next summer for a whole week! Being on her own and helping other children in her tent both helped her gain confidence in herself."
