SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Camp Reed is not accredited as a special needs camp. If your camper/participant has special health needs (including but not limited to: diabetes, cardiac illness, severe asthma, seizures, serious behavioral issues, or severe allergies), you must contact the camp director for advance clearance.

On a case by case basis, we consult with parent/guardian and our camp nurse to determine if accommodation and appropriate care is available. If we are unable to accommodate a special need, we do our best to provide information as to other camps that may be better suited for the particular situation.

Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Located just thirty miles north of Spokane, Camp Reed is set on close to 600 acres on beautiful Fan Lake. Camp Reed is a place that allows a �kid to be a kid,� experience life in the beautiful outdoors, and the opportunity to learn from our excellent staff and rich program activities. Our staff strives to make sure that each child feels special and comes away with the values and experiences that they may treasure for a lifetime.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: A camper�s time at camp is divided between unit time, cabin activities, free-choice time and all-camp events. Each day we have flagpole gatherings, chapel, waterfront activities, cabin clean up, work areas and siesta after lunch. Day and night hikes are extremely popular.

Once a week, weather permitting, each cabin joins with another for a sleep-out. This often includes a long hike (1 � 7 miles) and a night out under the stars. Younger cabins stay close to camp, while older campers explore further away from camp. Backpacks or bags to carry sleeping bags and water bottles are helpful. The two oldest cabins may have the opportunity to bike about 30 miles from camp for their overnight.

We have three campfires with songs and crazy staff skits with a special �sticks� campfire on the last evening. One night is reserved for a carnival and a camp dance. These events conclude around 9:30pm, and lights are out between 10:30 and 11:30pm. Wake up bell is at 8:30am.

Free-choice activities include arts & crafts, archery, climbing, sports, waterfront and wilderness activities. We also offer plenty of new and unique activities each day such as turtle hunts, random parades, stream hikes, boat races and a �Shark Swim� across the lake. This is a great time for campers to be with friends in different cabins.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The Camp Reed Counselor in Training (CIT) two-week program is designed for 15 & 16 year olds that will be entering their sophomore year of high school in Fall 2014. This very popular two week program consists of a Work Week and a Bike Trip. It is designed to provide a comprehensive youth experience where each individual is encouraged to reach his/her full potential.

The philosophy behind the Camp Reed CIT program is founded in an outdoor experience where the participant is challenged physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. It is fun, challenging and life changing!

CIT Leaders are experienced and mature Camp Reed staff who utilize group dynamics to encourage each participant to learn more about themselves and others in the group. They have the opportunity to work as a team as well as to practice leadership and group dynamic skills. This philosophy is the key to maintaining focus throughout the program�s entirety.

In order for the CIT program to accomplish its objective, each participant will be held to a high level of commitment and maturity. The CIT program is a transition for participants from camper to young adult. Expectations are higher in areas of personal responsibility, maturity and accountability. CIT Leaders will therefore treat CITs more like young adults than campers.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Camperships are available for any Camp Reed program - Mini Camp, Traditional Camp, CIT, and JC programs. We advise you to complete the campership process before registering your child for camp, as camperships are not guaranteed. For the complete process, visit: Our Camp Website Link:

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Camp Reed Family Camp is a great opportunity to bring the generations of your family together for fun, adventure and memories to last a lifetime. Activities are run by Camp Reed staff but parents are responsible for supervising their children.
