Our outdoor program is hugely popular at Nock-A-Mixon. Afterall, summer camp is the perfect place to experience nature and the great outdoors!
Our nature den has hosted animals such as lambs, chickens, turtles, bunnies, pigs and many others each summer. We also have a vegetable garden where we grow all natural cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers and more! Many of the vegetables are then used in our cooking program!
On a hot summer day there is no better place to spend time than Outdoor Life, a program effectively designed by the campers themselves. We are very lucky to have a portion of Gallows Run creek flowing right through camp. Playing and learning come together while catching frogs and crayfish, building dams, exploring and treasure hunting. The list of things to do is almost as long as the creek!
Each cabin will have a night scheduled for a “Cookout.” Our special cookout site is tucked into a corner of the camp making it a fun adventure for our campers. Cabins get to hike, cook outside, play in the creek and hear camp stories all around a campfire. Of course, no cook out is complete with some S’mores!
