Sunnyhill's youth Program

During our summer camp season, we offer a few specialized weeks to our younger campers.  The week is filled with peer oriented adventure activities that our youth campers really respond to.

For some youngsters, it is their first overnight opportunity away from home, and our highly trained staff works effortlessly to make them feel excited and comfortable.

Our week-long camp is packed with excitement from the top of the alpine tower to the heart of an outdoor cave.  All campers have the opportunity to explore the camp countryside, and to challenge their inner strength, taking away new-found skills and friendships.

We provide individual attention through counselor-to-camper ratio options of 1:8, to accommodate the wishes of both families and campers while ensuring a safe adventure experience for everyone.


Outdoor education:

Our expansive wooded setting nestled in Jefferson County supplies an ideal location for anyone looking to experience nature a it was meant to be.

Outdoor Challenge:

Our 50-foot alpine tower and swing will surely challenge campers of all levels and abilities. The tandem zip line begins adjacent to the 50-foot alpine tower and zips through the cedar trees, over our pristine lake ending 530-feet later at the landing platform. Sunnyhill is a challenge by choice facility and for some, taking one step on the tower is as difficult as getting to the top for others. Our low-ropes course is designed to teach teamwork , while being as fun experience for each camper. in addition to our on-site activities, we also offer cave explorations and hiking expeditions at Meramec State Park.

Water Sports:

At Sunnyhill Adventures we offer a wide variety of water-based activities, such as our lakefront where campers can fish, canoe, enjoy a paddle boat ride, or just relax in the pavilion. Our on-site swimming pool boasts 60,000 gallons of fun where campers can cool off and unwind poolside, play water basketball, or develop their swimming skills. Additionally, we offer off-site float trips ranging from two to five miles down the Meramec River. Sunnyhill has also acquired a mammoth waterslide. It can be found beside our swimming pool and provides our campers with a fun activity during the warm weather.

Creative arts:

All of our campers are encouraged to express themselves through various arts and crafts projects, creating images and collages using materials that they find in nature.

Sports activities:

In addition to all of our other program, we also offer campers the opportunity to take part in basketball, kickball, volleyball, soccer, basketball, and archery.
