Huckleberry Summer Camp

A back-to-basics, old-fashioned and fun-filled summer day camp for children ages 5-12.



2019 Huckleberry Summer Camp is full and can no longer accept registrations.

Huckleberry Summer Camp takes place on the campus of Sipe’s Orchard Home, located between Hickory and Conover on County Home Road. With hundreds of acres in rural Catawba County, this ideal site provides wide open spaces, forest trails, streams, and fishing ponds. Meeting/crafts areas and the picnic pavilion provide indoor and sheltered spaces. 

Huckleberry Summer Camp draws on Sipe's Orchard Home's experience enriching young people's lives. With friends and other children from the community, campers benefit from the safe and nurturing environment Sipe's has fostered for over sixty years. 

A perfect site, great activities, and an enthusiastic and well-trained staff add up to a summer of fun.

  • Breakfasts, lunches, and snacks are provided, and included in the cost.
