Weekend Programs and Adventures

Lantern Light Summer weekends  has plenty of traditional summer camp programs and facilities.  Every day campers have the opportunity to swim, boat, and fish at our waterfront on Northwood Lake.

Our aquatic programs is a big as the lake itself. There are opportunities to sail, canoe and kayak. There are group trips across the lake on board the Craig Ryder- A 26 foot wooden sailboat commonly referred to as the “whaleboat.”

Every day we offer a different sporting activity or game after dinner. We have a large sports field for softball, volley-ball, badminton, soccer, archery and many other team and individual sports. In keeping with our non-competitive orientation, the emphasis in our sports program is individual involvement, improvement of skills, and fun. Instruction is provided for all these activities
