The Camp Hudson Handbook
What is a typical day at Camp Hudson?
Within this daily structure, our youngest campers have time to tinker with several fun interludes within each Tinkering, Nature or Making session while our older campers have the opportunity to get into FLOW. During play / choice time, campers have a plethora of choice including working on their own project, building with Legos, reading a book, playing games outdoors, running around the sprinklers, exploring, etc.
What is a typical session at Camp Hudson?
Each session at Camp Hudson has a unique theme. On our first day together, we introduce the week's challenge, introduce some big ideas out there in the world as inspiration, and teach kids how to use real tools. Over the course of the two weeks, we play, think up lots of creative ideas, work together, build, test our ideas, and play some more. We will host an exhibition on the afternoon of the second Thursday to show parents, Andrus residents and members of the community our fabulous work. Our last day of camp gives us time to play with our amazing creations and reflect on our process.

Please be aware we are a nut-free camp. (If you do send in a sandwich that may look like peanut butter, please label the sandwich or let your child know that it is a nut-free sandwich.)

This year Camp Hudson is creating the Camp Hudson Fund to help provide assistance to families who strongly believe in our camp philosophy and mission, but cannot afford to send their child/ren to camp. The maximum amount of aid possible is 25% off of tuition. If this might make camp financially feasible for your family, please proceed with an application.
