Specialized Summer Camps

Eagle Village does summer camp differently. Unlike other summer camps, our counselors and staff use techniques specific to kids with past trauma and emotional impairments to deal with:

  • Troubled teens
  • Defiance
  • Extreme anger
  • Depression
  • Bad attitudes
  • Kids that experiment with self-harm

We use our activities, like climbing rock walls and hiking in the woods, to serve as intervention for troubled teens. Our wilderness experiences teach natural consequences, decision making, trust, perseverance, and goal setting.

We are not a boot camp and we are not a traditional summer camp. We are a camp where any kid, regardless of their struggles, can find their own success.

Financial assistance is available through Adoption Subsidy and scholarships. Some programs are Youth In Transition and Respite eligible. Call 231-832-7298 or send us an email for more information or apply for camp now.

Base Camp is a 5-day rustic camp experience for kids ages 9-13. This camp is best suited for kids that are struggling to manage their anger or sadness, lacking respect for themselves or others, suffer from Reactive Attachment Disorder, or have problems taking personal responsibility. Camp is held on-site at Eagle Village. The 5-day camp costs $500.

Base Camp is a great option for temporary foster care placements, newly formed adoptive families, or families beginning to see warning signs for behavior challenges in their son or daughter.

Project Survive is a 10-day intensive wilderness experience for teens that are 13-17 years old. This intervention is designed for teens that are skipping school or facing suspension, rebellious, and experimenting with illegal behaviors. Camp is held off-campus. The 10-day camp costs $1,500.

Project Survive is a great alternative to boot camp for families that don’t know what to do. Kids that are heading down a destructive path or get kicked out of other summer camps can succeed with Project Survive.
