Morning Classes

BE JOYFUL — SEEK THE JOY OF BEING ALIVE.

Scale a wall. Sail a course. Pierce a target. Light a fire by friction. With an emphasis on standards of achievement, Kooch-i-ching’s instructional program includes dozens of land and water-based activities for young men of all ages and abilities.

Afternoon ACTIVITIES

PLAY FAIR — FOUL PLAY IS TREACHERY.

In this world of rock and water, of thousands of lakes created by the great glaciers of the last ice age, Kooch-i-ching's magnificent athletic fields may seem incongruous, but in the afternoons they swarm with activity. Be it dodgeball or softball, American Eagle or capture-the-flag, joyful competition at Kooch-i-ching spells quicker reflexes, newfound confidence and an abiding respect for fair play.

EVENING TRADITIONS

SPEAK TRUE — WORD OF HONOR IS SACRED.

Evenings are a special time at Kooch-i-ching, and there are no dull moments. The Preps might enjoy a frog derby or scavenger hunt. For Juniors, pillow fighting brings out the competitive spirit in all. Witch's Broom Ride, a contest of skill and balance, is another favorite, and Intermediates are known the battle for top honors. Up on The Point, Seniors might gather in Red Lodge to plan the all-camp barbecue or listen to stories from alumni back from a recent Arctic trip. High on everyone's list are events unique to Kooch-i-ching: Friendship Dance, Little Council, and the pageantry that is Grand Council.

Native American Program

Be Reverent — Worship the Great Spirit and respect all worship of Him by others.

Of all the classes at Kooch-i-ching, Native American dancing and crafts are perhaps the most popular, if for no other reason than because they are the rarest of offerings at summer camps. Where else can young men develop the grace and coordination required to learn Native American dances or create the magnificent regalia on display during Grand Council?
