Families interested in learning more about our summer camp programs should especially make plans to join us this day, as camp staff and volunteers will be on hand to give guided tours and showcase our fantastic facilities.
Established in 1931 on wooded hills along the Wapsipinicon River north of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Camp Hitaga's summer resident camp serves boys and girls entering grades 1 through 12 in the fall, providing fun and personal growth in a non-competitive, natural environment.
Camp Hitaga's facilities and programs - including our Challenge Course - are also available for use by other organizations and private groups, especially before and after our summer sessions, and are popular with scouts, day cares, church groups, sororities, archery clubs, and for family reunions.
The Camp Fire Promise provides the foundation for all our fun programming.
Both at Camp Hitaga and in year-round Camp Fire clubs, youth (and adults) are encouraged to explore, discover, and become independent while also learning to cooperate with each other in deciding upon, planning, and participating in group activities – from cookouts to trips to service projects.
