Why would we choose Camp Henry over the other camps in the area? +
Camp Henry's intentional programs are designed to allow campers and guests to connect, refresh, learn, and grow. While many camps offer exceptional programs and activities, we take our services to the next level by providing you the opportunity to customize your experience to meet the needs of your group. Our trained staff are service-focused, attentive to details, and are looking forward to creating an excellent experience. Many leaders in the past have shown appreciation for the fact that all they needed to be concerned about during their time at camp was building relationships with the others in their group – we took care of the rest!
What types of programming options may we choose from? +
Depending on the length of your stay, the ages and numbers of participants you have, we will assist you in putting together the optimal experience for your group and your desired outcomes. We offer a wide array of activities - we've got everything from the classic camp activities of canoeing and archery to more intensive team building sessions that will challenge and improve group dynamics. Most of our school groups that come are hoping to create class cohesion and have a blast learning about the natural world. Subsequently, they tend to enjoy teambuilding sessions, a climbing activity, and exploring our amazing wetland trail. Some retreat groups also choose to incorporate some of their own programming into the schedule. The Program Director can assist you in putting together the best schedule for your group.
How do you put a schedule together? +
We typically divide guests up into groups of about 15 to participate in activities. Activity lengths are typically about 90 minutes long – allowing us to devote attention to everyone involved and still have time to debrief at the end of each activity. We always have meals together and love to schedule our evenings with some large group programming after a day of fun activities in smaller groups.
What if we have participants who have food allergies or dietary restrictions? +
We want everyone to be able to have a fantastic camp experience and that includes the dining portion of their time at Camp Henry. Food allergies and other special dietary needs should be indicated on the Group Assessment Form. Please feel free to email any food allergies and/or dietary concerns to our Food Service Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 616-459-2267.
