Battalion

Program Description

For guys ages 12-16.

A life-changing week for teen guys!
At age 12 you leave the Stockade and move to the Battalion end of camp. You stay in a cabin with guys your own age, no 12 year olds with 15 year olds and no 16 year olds with 13 year olds.

Bring a friend if you want, but it's easy to make friends at Northern Frontier. Two of the best friends you'll make will be your own counselors. You'll think Northern Frontier counselors are awesome, and the counselors think Jesus Christ is awesome. They will help you toward real manhood, not the fake manhood others offer you.

You can come to Northern Frontier for one or two weeks and choose activities like our ropes course, disc golf, archery, riflery, canoeing, woodshop, rock climbing, rocketry, fishing, sailing to name just a few. You'll enjoy campfires each night including skits and an exciting story told by one of the counselors you'll get to know. The chances are that your time at Northern Frontier will be your best week of the summer. Mid week you and your cabin will go on an overnight campout on state land. Most of the sites are anywhere from 45 minutes to just less than 2 hours away, and located along the Hudson River, scenic ponds, or near a beautiful vista. Talk to someone who knows Northern Frontier and you'll know why you should come. Then next year you'll be the one to talk to!
