About Timber Lake West

Timber Lake West offers a co-ed camp experience with two unique four-week programs. We've packed all the excitement, activities, and traditions of a full-season camp into half the time! Our two 4-week sessions allow our campers to make the most of their time by combining a session at West with other programs such as specialty camps and family vacations. This kind of adaptability and freedom is not attainable with a full-season program. West is the ideal stepping stone for first-time campers; its family environment and shorter session length make the transition to resident camp easier for both children and parents!

Timber Lake West is a joyful and stimulating home-away-from-home for our campers, where they can have fun, create lasting friends, and be themselves. We take pleasure in being an extension of your family, reinforcing the strong values and life lessons that you instilled in your children at home. Most importantly, we want the same things for your kid that you do: for them to feel secure and happy, and to be a part of a warm and caring summer family.
