Kick Start One Week Program


Kick Start Your Adventure

Camp Ak-O-Mak’s “Kick Start” one-week session is the perfect introduction to camp life for first-time campers! Our “Kick Start” sessions allow campers ages seven to ten to experience camp life in a one-week summer camp experience

Make Memories

Campers will enjoy being with their age group peers who also are experiencing camp life for the first time. Low staff/camper ratios will allow our newest campers additional support and guidance as they develop confidence.

Program Details

For First-time Campers

Our program is designed to give first-time campers an authentic "taste" of Ak-O- Mak, including classes, lessons, and camp activities. 

One time only

We believe that all of our campers benefit from a 2-3 week session, so when our 'new' one-week campers become 'returning' campers, they must choose a full-length session.

Limited Capacity

Registration is limited on a first-come-first-serve basis. Kick Start Camps start on a Sunday; campers must arrive after 2 pm and before 4 pm. Camp ends on Saturday pick-up between 9 am and 11 am. No bus service is available.

On-site Experience

Because of the timing of the sessions, it will not be possible to expose our 'one weekers' to our out trips or special All Camp programming.

Make this their best summer yet.
