Kirkmont’s Beginners Camp lets younger campers spend part of the week at camp trying out classic Kirkmont activities like hiking, pool time, canoeing and crafts; meeting new friends; and singing around the campfire.

  • Science: The science track does something different and exciting every year. In the past they have dissected sharks and done in depth studies of the pond area. The science track is led by a science teacher from the Benjamin Logan Schools and always promises an exciting look in to the vast field of science.
  • Art: From oil paintings, to paper mache and even murals. This track explores the world of art and its various types of materials and applications.
  • Robotics: The robotics track will use Vex robotics parts to build and program robots to perform specific tasks such as push blocks, stack blocks, or even pick up ping pong balls to place into a container. Participants will get an introduction in to the basics of robotics.
