Hardly a day goes by at Shibley without an exciting special event for our campers! There are several "All-Camp Events" such as the Shibley Olympics, Carnival and Waterworld Day which include campers of all ages from 3 to 13. In addition, we have numerous events geared to Junior and Senior Camp separately.
Junior Camp Events
Junior Campers delight in their own special events. Boys and girls participate together in events such as our Junior Camp Sing and Sports Team Dress Up Day.

In Junior Camp, we also have individual events for boys and girls. The Junior Boys' Tug-A-Mania Boat Race and Bowling Bonanza are favorites and the "Shibley Stars Musical Review" and Disco Party are big hits with our Junior Girls.
