Programs include painting, ceramics, silver jewelry making, pewter casting, tie dye, beading, copper enameling, drawing, model rocketry, circus arts and woodworking.
The Athletics program at Beber aspires to bring positive recognition to each camper who participates in a sport as well as maintain a broad offering of programs to encourage interest in sports. Our athletic programs are built on the concepts of participation, effort, skill acquisition, integrity, and enthusiasm. By participating in a sport, campers are encouraged to achieve individual excellence and the esteem that follows as well as promote teamwork where appropriate.
We are committed to providing quality coaches and maintaining a reputation for innovation and progressive programming. We do not focus on competition, except where applicable, but rather emphasize and encourage campers to develop and learn new skills. Ethical conduct, teamwork, and good sportsmanship are always strongly promoted. We keep our athletic facilities in top shape and we are vigilant about safety to prevent injuries. Finally, we are committed to offering equal opportunities to all genders. Programs include basketball, tennis, baseball, soccer, archery, volleyball, fitness, ga-ga, ultimate frisbee, mountain biking and yoga.
The Beber Camp outdoor education program provides hands-on opportunities for all campers to directly engage with the outdoors. Our 400 acres are a place for campers to learn how to participate in outdoor activities responsibly and safely. Our aim is to inspire campers to develop a personal relationship with the outdoors to promote the preservation and conservation of the natural environment. Programs include farming, gardening, geocaching, outdoor cooking, bird watching and camping/survival skills.
