Mini-Woodcraft Camp introduces children to the wonderful Culver Woodcraft Camp. The weekend schedule is shaped to be as close to the real experience as possible, revealing the fun and excitement of our day-to-day programs.

Campers will make new friends from near and far, participate in exciting activities, and enjoy a sample of our evening camp rituals. All of this is wrapped up into one fun-filled weekend here at Culver.

 

Registration Form

 

Please complete the registration form and the activity release form and return them, along with a check payable to CEF to Culver Summer Schools & Camps, ATTN: Mini-Woodcraft Camp, 1300 Academy Rd #138, Culver, IN 46511.

OR - You may fax your registration form and activity release form to (574) 842-8462, and pay cash or check on arrival.

Parents/Guardians will be emailed a week before registration with a final camp schedule, driving directions, weather alerts, and other necessary information.  

Sorry, no refunds are offered due to the amount of planning necessary.

 

PLEASE NOTE

  1. Mini-camps are open to the public. You do not need to be a Parent or an Alumna/us of Culver Academies to send your child to Mini-Woodcraft Camp.
  2. The mini-camps are held in conjunction with the Culver Academies' Parents Weekend in October and Alumni Reunion Weekend in May. These are big weekends for the Academies and the town. If you plan to stay nearby during one of the mini-camp sessions, please be sure to find accomodations for yourself before registering your child.
  3. Although registration times are set to work in conjunction with the Academies' events, your child may join us at any time. We do ask that the majority of campers arrive as close to the registration time as possible so we can officially start camp.

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

  • My son had a great time. I was shocked when we picked him up and he said he wanted to come back for the 6-week camp. He is quite the home-body.
  • Bravo! Mini-camp's success foreshadows Woodcraft's!
  • I want you to know that my son had a great time and even showed me the buffalo dance in the school parking lot today! He said he didn't get time to ask if he could come this summer (woodcraft camp) because he ran out of time-although he's certain he's ready!!
  • They had a BALL!!! Kudos to you and your team! Though my son was quite beat on Sunday, he told me that the camp was the best thing he ever did in his life! Very impressive, thanks for everything.
  • My daughter LOVED the mini camp and I just wanted to thank you and your team for your hard work with them this weekend. She is really interested in coming back for summer school so the seed is planted! :-)
  • Thank you for everything you and your staff did to ensure the kids had a great camp experience, despite the weather. Our daughter really enjoyed it.
  • My daughter had a ball! Thanks for a great weekend. We're all looking forward to camp.
  • I want to start off by saying how much fun my son had this past weekend. I am truly thankful that you and the Culver staff provide a safe and enriching program.
