horse-thumbs-upSimply the Best!

Towering Pines features a multi-activity, individual choice, and skill-building program. Our unique size assures daily access to favorite activities and allows boys to learn in a small group setting. Instruction and coaching at all levels is provided so as to challenge the fifth year camper as well as reassure the first timer to try something new.


The individual camper selects his own program from a diverse variety of activities and participates in them for at least two weeks until he selects a new set of activities. This gives plenty of time to learn, practice, and progress, while receiving supervision and encouragement every step of the way. Campers have the opportunity to change their schedule (if desired) to pursue and experience new activities and interests after every two weeks.


The instructional emphasis in selected activities is designed to build skills, inspire new interests and promote achievement of personal goals.


Camp is a sheltered community – a “home away from home.” The variety of shared experiences with friends and positive mentors build unity and strong friendships.

With lots of variety, freedom to make your own choices and counselors to teach you how to do it, Towering Pines is simply the best place to spend your summers!
