JCYS - Camp Henry Horner
Located on 180 wooded acres with a sandy beach front on Wooster Lake, Camp Henry Horner offers a north woods experience in Illinois. Along with beach and lake activities, campers enjoy a high-ropes course and zip line, heated swimming pool, sports, arts & crafts, campfires – and friendships that last a lifetime. Teen campers not only enjoy our vast campgrounds, but experience weekly adventures that take them to places such as the Wisconsin State Fair, Great America, Action territory, laser tag, and more!
We are thrilled to announce new and exciting additions to Camp Henry Horner. Beginning this year, we are an official training center for the Starfish Aquatic Institute. Campers enjoy swimming in our heated pool, as well as lake time where we have inflatables, slides, kayaks and canoes, and beach time.
Not only have we upgraded our swim lesson offerings but we have also increased our focus on the wonderful, natural environment at camp. This summer we will be launching our Outdoor Skills Lab (OSL). Each week, campers will participate in a variety of outdoor adventures including:
• Outdoor Cooking.
• Outdoor Living skills such as fire building, shelter building, knot tying, outdoor safety/first aid and orienteering.
• Archery (3rd grade and up) at our newly built range.
• Environmental Education activities including tree identification, animal habitat studies, aquatic creatures, environmental stewardship, and Native American studies.
On top of these fun and educational activities campers will continue to participate in a variety of offerings at our High Sierra Adventure Center including team building, high ropes course, climbing wall and zipline.
