A day at Camp Good News
Let’s face facts: summer is the time for excitement. School is out and so is the sun. If you like to dive, be bounced, or jump off a huge iceberg into a crystal clear lake then this is the place for you. If you would rather be propelled by the wind, or an oar, or a paddle on the same crystal clear lake, then you’ve found the place. If you want to look up and look at the stars while camping in the woods of Cape Cod, we are waiting for you. If you don’t mind some marshmallow on your face, campfires have been known to take place here. If you like sand between your toes, we’ve got some. Like using rackets? We’ve got courts. Do you love soccer, basketball, softball, tennis, or archery? So do we. Who doesn’t love gimp? We have gimp. . .and much more in the arts and crafts. And don’t worry, if you can’t swim, or sail, or canoe, or know what gimp is... we will teach you. Come spend some time at Camp Good News. We love summer, too!
Waterfront activities include swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, and more!
Camp counselors and staff are always available to give a listening ear or lend a hand.
Weekly trips to places like Boston and the local waterpark add variety and excitement!
Fun evening program activities include campfires, beach nights, sports nights, and more!
When we say, "Come and get it," we're not kidding! No camper ever goes away hungry. Menus are planned with the needs and preferences of campers in mind, featuring items like egg mcmuffins, peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti, hamburgers, pizza, chicken, ham and turkey.
