Every camper at Camp Veritans is encouraged to take part in our wide variety of exciting activities and programs, at their pace. With gentle and spirited guidance of our well-trained staff, there are over 60 acres of athletic fields, open space, hiking trails, playgrounds and climbing areas for your child to enjoy. All campers are always encouraged to participate in activities but are never forced, a rule that is born of the philosophy that when activities are positively introduced in an inviting and fun manner, children will naturally want to try them.
Our beautiful pool sits as the centerpiece of our camp, and an oasis for your children on the hazy, humid days of summer. We take our swimming program very seriously. Here at Camp Veritans we pride ourselves on the goal of teaching children how to swim and how to swim well. We follow the American Red Cross guidelines for swim instruction. Our swim instructors receive extensive training on how to work with children of all ages and abilities. Campers receive swim instruction daily, in small group settings, with a trained swim instructor and the assistance of a group staff member. Safety is our top priority at all times at the pool. We strictly adhere to the ACA required 1:30, lifeguard to camper ratio. Lifeguards are certified in Lifeguarding, First Aid, CPR and AED. There is a swim supervisor on deck, and our Aquatics Director oversees the entire swim program.
Nestled in 2.5 acres of wooded pine tree forest, our Ropes & Challenge Course is managed by a team of ropes specialists and includes over 15 team building, problem solving obstacles. Offering a variety of low elements (taking place on the ground, or only a few feet above the ground) and high elements (taking place in trees or raised platforms, and requiring a belay for safety) it is an outdoor personal development system built to challenge campers of all ages.
An activity that is as exciting and fun for campers today as it was for campers in ancient Israel. Our archery program is available to kids in our middle and upper camp, both as a regular activity and special elective. Taught by our trained and expert bowman, campers love coming to archery to develop and practice their skills.
We’re happy to be able to include Gymnastics to our regular summer lineup of programming. With trained and certified gymnastics instructors, campers learn things from the fundamentals of tumbling, to using basic floor equipment.
Led by a trained and certified instructor, campers learn the fundamentals of throwing, catching, good sportsmanship and basic skills.

Campers young and old love STEM. Their summer camp program gives kids the opportunity to learn about science through interactive, hands-on and exciting activities.
