Come up for the weekend for two fun-filled days and one night at camp! If your child is entering 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade and is not yet ready for camp, we’d like to invite your prospective camper to share in an action-packed weekend at Lake Owego Camp! Boys will have the chance to participate in exciting camp activities with other prospective campers while camp is in session, the whole time being supervised by our excellent staff. While children are enjoying Explorer Camp, parents can tour Lake Owego and meet with the directors.

Weekend activities include athletics, swimming, arts & crafts, outdoor adventure and more!

Transportation available to and from Philadelphia and New York City for our Explorer Overnights.

*Play Days are our version of Explorers in one action-packed, 10AM-4PM, day! Parents are invited to tour camp and meet with the directors, then they're encouraged to go out to lunch and explore the area while future campers enjoy camp for the day!
