Campers will explore the outdoors, learn about themselves and make friends in an environment where campers are known, loved, challenged and inspired.  

SAES Camp Traditions

Water Wednesdays

Every Wednesday campers have the opportunity for water play in the fields.

Creek and Lake Exploration

All camp groups will explore our creek near the outdoor chapel.  Our camp staff will allow campers to enter the creek and lake to their mid-calf.  Campers will use nets to collect, observe and release creatures in our waters.  A few of the aquatic friends that can be found are minnows, sunfish, catfish, eels, tadpoles and snails. 

Friday Plate Awards

Respect, Responsibility, and Compassion awards will be given to campers who exhibit behaviors that complement our values each week at our Friday end of week camp celebration.

Scavenger Hunt

This is a camper favorite. Campers and counselors use clues to find items on our beautiful campus. 

Outdoor Activities and Sports

Campers will have opportunities each day to participate in outdoor sports and challenges using our ropes course, play areas, obstacle courses and other equipment in our beautiful outdoor spaces.
