The camp week consists of four days, beginning on Monday afternoon when the campers arrive at camp and ending on Friday morning after breakfast. 4-H Agents, volunteer leaders, and teen counselors from each parish attend camp and stay in the cabins with the campers.

Campers participated in one of (7) educational tracks: Science, Engineering, and Technology; Outdoor Adventures; Hunter Safety; Water Safety; Louisiana Wetlands; Food and Fitness; and General Arts. Campers will also have recreational time to play various sports, archery, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding, and line dancing. Other choices include team-building activities, performing arts, visiting with friends, and shopping for souvenirs in the Camp Store. Evening programs consist of skits, talent show, Vespers, and special guest speakers.
