It’s been a long two summers, but we are back!
Camp will look a little different this summer but we are looking forward to some fun times ahead!
How will things be different?
- Smaller group size. Camp normally ran 85 kids per week. We will operate with 54.

- Mini camp- 2 night intro to camp! for younger campers to enjoy a little bit of fun! same activities customized for their developmental social and emotional needs.
- Family Camp- 2 nights back at summer camp! We have been asked for years if adults can come to camp and now they can! Come enjoy 2 nights with your kids and have some fun with us! There will be kid and adult programming provided, enjoy time together and apart during your stay.
Covid safety measures will include:
-Rapid antigen tests at sign in registration at camp. Each camper must test negative upon arrival.
We will have tests on site
-Campers will sleep one bunk apart. No side by side sleeping in cabins.
– Campers will eat outside as normal and most activities will be outdoors as much as possible.

C&C KIDS Camp is a camp program hosted at Camp David Jr. Located on beautiful Lake Crescent in the shadows of the Olympic Mountains, Camp David Jr offers a truly unique experience. Throughout the week, campers will enjoy the outdoors, learn new skills, and discover talents. They’ll be encouraged to push their comfort zones, meet new and potentially life-long friends, and try things they’d never thought of trying. But above all, they’re going to have fun.
Our mission is to provide lifelong memories for campers and provide them with outdoor experiences that increase social and emotional growth and physical health. We hope that campers can become lifelong nature lovers as well as grasping the concept of having fun without technology, embracing face to face social interaction
Camp David Jr. in Clallam County is a unique environment. The facilities include a beautiful main lodge with historical elk horn chandeliers and paintings and a large fireplace. There are nine sleeping cabins, 2 docks and a swimming area with 3 roped areas. There is a fishing dock, canoe/boat launch, and 2 large grass playfields. Free from screens and wifi, campers will be submerged in nature and outdoor elements.
Surrounded by history and nature they will have activities such as plant and animal identification, archery, fishing, hiking, swimming, canoeing, woodworking, outdoor survival, habitat restoration, outdoor cooking, pottery, music, drama, martial arts, yoga, low ropes/challenge courses and more.
Campers will have the experience of nature by sleeping in cabins where they form friendships and develop leadership amongst their peers.
C&C KIDS Camp has been operating a two-week camp for three years. We have expanded our programs over the years ad are now offering three weeks with programs ranging for ages 7-14 and a family camp option.
We feel that our volunteer-based program is the root of our success. Our volunteers were almost all campers themselves. Success to us is seeing young campers learning about nature, learning new outdoor activities and learning to
love the outdoors. Our goal is that campers will encourage their families to also love nature and be involved in the outdoors more after their time with us at camp. Campers grow into counselors that strive to provide memories and experiences for younger campers within the program. Approximately 90% of our staff all attended camp themselves as children. Campers turn into adults that have a new
appreciation for the outdoors and everything it has to offer. Campers learn how to socialize and communicate with each other without a screen. Camp is a tech free zone, campers enter camp often struggling to communicate with one another. They are often shy and isolate themselves. After a couple days we see them reach out of their comfort zones, talking and laughing with each other. We see them try new things, activities that they may have never attempted before. Embracing the beauty of silliness and laughter, common traits and new ones too! It becomes a beautiful mixture of camp family that each camper takes home with them.
