All campers will have fun developing new skills that last a lifetime. Weekend campers must be accompanied by a parent/and or Troop Leader for the entire weekend to meet proper adult:girl ratios.*
At Camp Scherman, all campers get to try their hand at favorite camp activities, which may include archery, canoeing, hiking, swimming, and low ropes, led by trained camp staff.
Weekend participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp.
Financial aid "camperships" are awarded to campers on the basis of financial need only and are available for resident camps.
