Our storybook ballet camps are filled with joy, dancing, amazing art projects and fun! Parents/guests are invited to an in-studio showcase on the final day to celebrate a beautiful camp week.
Camps are Monday – Friday from 9 – 11:30am.
Children will learn about the ballet theme through expressive classical ballet classes where their imaginations and personalities soar in a loving and nurturing environment. Healthy snacks are provided daily and the crafts are something that can be cherished forever. Each daily craft ties in the theme of the camp beautifully – truly engaging the child as a whole while maintaining our high-standard ballet curriculum
Red Arrow Camp is the camp that time forgot. Red Arrow offers a traditional, single-session summer camp experience for boys ages 7 to 16. Located on the beautiful shores of Trout Lake, Red Arrow’s program of challenge and adventure provides boys an unmatched opportunity to develop confidence and learn new skills while having the summer of their lives. The Red Arrow experience is truly like no other. Built on traditions started more than 90 years ago, Red Arrow is an escape from the craziness and stress in the modern-day lives of our boys. Televisions are replaced with pine trees, log cabins, sports fields, and canoes. Video games give way to real live adventures in the wilderness of the Northwoods. The call of the loons and the crackle of a campfire replace the noise of the city and the blare of an iPod. Laptops turn into ping pong paddles and iPads into pen and paper. Here at Red Arrow, boys become unplugged from the everyday routine, and tuned into the wonder of nature, the satisfaction of hard work, and the magic of enduring friendships.

THEME: INTO THE WILD
While engaged in new and exciting themed activities which change weekly, campers gain self-confidence, personal growth, and discovery. Belonging to a community, new friendship and memorial experiences are just a few of the things our day and overnight campers gain while participating in rock climbing, gardening, lake activities, group games, arts & crafts and more! Located on 300 acres on Lake Keesus, we love sending our campers home with lungs full of fresh air, legs tired from regular activity, needing a bath from outdoor exploring, and a smile on their face!
