<aside> 📢 Family camping in 2023 will feature some family programming! You can look forward to family activities that may include campfire gatherings, field games, family fun box check-out, and more… and of course, your family can always choose to head out for off-camp adventures in the local area. See the fun list of things to do near Camp Clark for ideas…
<aside> 💡 Now Hiring Camp Staff! Several camps are looking for a few more great role models to serve as camp staff members! Please recommend to youth aged 15 and older that serving on camp staff is a great way to help others, and gives great work experience. Some adult leadership positions are also available! More info here.

Arrival & Parking
There are 15 family campsites at Clark. Most are shared sites with plenty of room for two families. Each family makes their own reservation. Your site reservation may be noted ‘Site A’ or ‘Site B’ - which will also appear on your parking space and your shower room door.
Campsites feature two-person mini-dacs with sleeping platforms. You’ll also have a firepit and dining shelter area.
Camp Clark campsites are peaceful and beautiful.
Campsite outhouses are all flushing toilets with real porcelain toilets and nearby hand-wash stations, plus you’ll have your own shower room with toilet, shower, sink at the showerhouse.
As of June 15, there is no mask requirement at camp and no other limitations. We will be asking simple covid screening questions before you exit your vehicle.
There aren’t a LOT of rules, but there are some. Please see the Safety Rules page.
While in camp, families often enjoy playing games they’ve brought, throwing a frisbee or playing catch. Walks on the beach are popular, as well as visits to the tide-pools next to the cape. Want to get out and explore? There are lots of nearby attractions and activities to consider; we’ve collected a number of ideas for you on the ‘Things To Do’ page:
