Hey, Camp Folks!

We love talking about a wide array of topics on this Blog, but one of our most frequent and consistent topics is to feature one of the many summer camps with whom we have the joy of working. We’re swinging our Everything Summer Camp camp spotlight over to the American Southwest, north of Lake Tahoe where we find Meadow Mountain Ranch.

A sleepaway camp for boys and girls from 7 to 16, Meadow Mountain Ranch summer camp is situated on a spacious ranch of 900 acres in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. At Meadow Mountain, they offer a traditional, classic camp program, where the Meadow Mountain philosophy lets the campers naturally form bonds and strong friendships—almost like a big family! With over 60 summers under their belt, the folks at Meadow Mountain know what they’re doing!

A magical experience, full of fresh and fun opportunities, Meadow Mountain campers learn and try their hand at Animal Care, Archery, Arts & Crafts, Campfires, Ceramics, CILT (Campers in Leadership Training), Color Wars, Drama, Fencing, Fishing, High Ropes, Horseback Riding, Mountain Biking, Out Trips, Paintball, Photography, Riflery, Water Sports, Lagoon (the most popular spot on a hot summer day!), and plenty more!

Campers convene at mealtimes in the rustic and historical Dining Hall that feels like hanging out in a lodge. Campers are able to eat under a canopy outside as well with a great view of the campground meadows and lagoon. It’s also where they throw their camp-wide dance parties. 

Cabin groups are assigned according to age and gender. Each cabin has electricity, wall-to-wall carpeting, and is complete with its own bathroom and shower facilities. Campers are accommodated in twin-sized cozy wooden bunk beds. The bathrooms provide great shelving and countertop space. And many offer a great view from a front deck, overlooking the central meadow!

Totally Timanous

Posted on

Hey, Camp Folks!

Here at Everything Summer Camp, we’re always singing the praises of nearly 300 summer camps with whom we’ve formed a great relationship. That’s why today I’m shining our camp spotlight in the gorgeous state of Maine to feature Camp Timanous—just a short ways from the Atlantic Ocean.

Summer days at Camp Timanous are spent outside on the beautiful shores of Panther Pond, nestled among tall pine trees. At Camp Timanous, boys are given the chance to have new experiences and acquire independence. Timanous campers find friendships and positivity among their peers.

Steeped in tradition that goes back to 1886, Camp Timanous has stood the test of time, helping to cultivate their campers’ potential in mind, body, and spirit. Founders Luther and Charlotte Gulick launched their children’s camp in Gales Ferry, Connecticut originally. The Gulicks came to be known as pioneers in youth education as they showed the positive results camping delivered for children.

The camp remained under Gulick ownership until 1955 when the camp was sold to Johnny Suitor who had been with the camp for the previous 46 years working his way from a young camp counselor in 1936 to the camp director! Johnny and his wife Marti directed the camp for more than three decades until 2018 when Garth Altenburg stepped up as the latest and current director.

He’s maintained the essence of the Gulick’s philosophy of using camp to further our youth in mind, body, and spirit. Camp Timanous boys 8 to 15 go on camping trips to awesome places across Maine. And, of course, there’s tons of fun right at Camp Timanous with awesome activities such as Archery and Riflery, Canoeing, Kayaking, and Paddleboarding, Climbing Wall, Handicrafts and Woodworking, Nature and Exploring the Outdoors, Sailing, Sports (Basketball, Soccer, Tennis, and more), Waterskiing, Swimming, and plenty more.

Hey, Camp Fans! 

The camp season is over for most of you. Still, it’s never too early to start considering where you’ll send your camper for the next summer season. Whether they’re going for the first time or looking for a change-up in the camp experience, taking the steps to exploring how well a camp will suit your child is one of the most crucial parts of a successful camp stay. 

And just for that very reason, we like to highlight the summer camps with whom we’ve formed great relationships. Today, let’s shine our Camp Spotlight on Camp Mo Ranch. 

Sitting on 500 acres along the spring-fed Guadalupe River in the heart of Texas’ stunning Hill Country in the town of Hunt, Camp Mo-Ranch is more than just summer camp—open for spiritual retreats, conferences, day camps, weddings, reunions, vacation getaways, and more. Their summer camp program, however, is what we’re interested in! 

Their one-week session shows kids a jam-packed summer stay with exciting activities like Archery, Arts & Crafts, Canoeing, Critter Classes, Games, High Ropes, Mountain Biking, Nature Hikes, Sports, Swimming, and so much more! Camp Mo Ranch summer campers are encouraged to grow their Christian faith with Bible studies and worship. Of course, there’s plenty of time at Mo Ranch for playing silly songs, crazy camp traditions, campfires, s’mores, and making new friends! 

Loma Linda is the air-conditioned headquarters, laid out with four separate living areas with bunk beds as well as community bathrooms. Campers are assigned to groups by age. The girls sleep on the top floor and the boys on the bottom floor of Loma Linda. The building also houses the nurse’s station in the top floor lobby for easy access when needed.
