Specialty Camps

M.A.D.D Camp (Music Art Dance and Drama)

A place where campers express themselves artistically with friends and staff members, MADD camp is legendary for helping campers explore their creative side to discover their gifts. Campers will perform, sing, and create, so bring musical instruments, voices, creativity, or just an interest in expression. No special experience is required, and campers will still engage in MoVal activities like swimming, boating, campfire, and time on the lake.

Campers live in different units grouped by gender and age. Morning activities are arranged by age group, afternoon activities are camper selected with mostly mixed ages and evening activities include all campers.

***MADD Camp will have a closing production starting at 5:30pm on Friday. All campers and campers' guardians are welcome to see the MADD closing production, but please check out your campers first. We expect the production to last 1 hour and 15 minutes. MADD campers' guardians should plan for an 6:30 departure.
