Camp Hitaga is active THROUGHOUT the year!

Camp Hitaga isn't just for summer camp! We present our own Camp Fire outdoor programs and share Hitaga's facilities and programs with others (Day Cares, Scout troops, church groups, archery clubs, horse associations, the Society for Creative Anachronisms, family reunions, weddings, birthday parties and other user groups) year-round.  

To pre-view our facilities, visit our "Virtual Tour" (still under construction)

Coming Soon:

The weekend of April 25-27 has been designated as our 3rd Annual Alumni Work Weekend - when alumni from across the decades and across the country will gather together at camp to help with improvements and to share each others' company.  

Open House & FAMILY FUN Days

Sundays   April 27  *   May 4   *   May 18

Come on our for a tour AND to enjoy a preview of (or re-live!) the fun summer campers have in various camp activities. The whole family can try Campcraft (e.g. fire building, knot tying) Hand Arts (e.g. leather working, lanyard making), Archery and/or Nature activities.   Plan to spend 20-30 minutes at each craft area you choose to try. Specific activities will vary from one weekend to the next, so you could come on all three dates!

All these activities are FREE and Open to the public – so bring your friends!  
  Free will donations are appreciated, especially for activities where materials are consumed.

Arrive any time between 2 pm - 5 pm  (activities will close at 6 pm)

This event provides a time for youth grades K­‐8 and an adult in their life to get a taste of RESIDENT camp – doing activities, eating meals in the Dining Lodge and sleeping in one of our rustic cabins TOGETHER.  Activities will be specially planned to be done by adult/youth pairs.  Each adult+child pair will stay in a cabin with up to three other similar pairs (moms with daughters, dads with sons, moms with sons, dads with daughters... similarly aged youth will be grouped together as well.)   Bring your own sleeping bag / bedroll & pillow.
Registration required by May 10.
