Outback Village Program Philosophy 

Outback Village is open to boys ages 13-16. Living in a self-sufficient village, Outback is located on the South Side of Stony Lake. There is a waterfront, boat dock and athletic field shared with Pathfinder Village. Without the pull of technology, Outbackers live simply allowing for focus on the important things in life. With their peers and the guidance of strong counselors, Outback is a close community that strives to give all young men a chance to build self-esteem and gain independence. The village allows campers to try all that camp has to offer from paddle-boarding, high ropes, and cooking their own meals to sailing and taking part in special Outback traditions. Highlights include joining Ranch, Pathfinders, and Trailblazers for Pink Flamingo Day and Ranch Hoe Down. Outback campers join the Pathfinder Village for a three-night trip to northern Michigan exploring the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and canoeing the Manistee River. Forging new interests, positive relationships, and self-reliance, Outback Village is more than the activities, but a home away from home. Outback Village is a place where young men reflect on personal goals and make friendships that will stay with them into adulthood. 

Cabin/Village Arrangements 

Outback campers sleep in rustic cabins that are located close to restroom and shower facilities. 

Meals and Nutrition 

Outback campers prepare their meals and wash their dishes in their village kitchen. Balanced meals are planned in collaboration with the director of dining services, and allergy and special dietary needs are accommodated.
