Buckaroo is for rising 1st and 2nd grade and is available at the beginning of each regular session. Buckaroos check-in is on Sunday at 3:00 pm and check-out is on Wednesday at 1:00 pm. Once at Camp, Buckaroos have the option to extend and stay the whole week for an additional $350. Parents will receive an e-mail or phone call to notify them of their Buckaroo's desire to stay or check-out on Wednesday. Buckaroos that stay the whole week will check out on Saturday at 8:30 am.
Regular Camp is for rising 2nd to 10th grade campers and they stay for a full week of camp. This is Camp Cosby's traditional camp experience in which campers enjoy many different activities, connect with their counselors and make deep, meaningful friendships. Camp tuition includes air-conditioned cabins, three meals and two snacks each day, caring, well-trained counselors, access to all age appropriate activities, camp t-shirt, cabin photo and store souvenirs.
Rising 4th to 10th grade campers who meet the physical requirements can enhance their stay by registering for a Specialty Camp. For an additional fee, this is a great way to focus on skill development in some of Cosby’s favorite programs. Specialty Camps include Mini Bikes, Wakeboard/Waterski, Wrangler and Ceramics/Pottery. Specialty Camp campers bunk with campers their age and participate in all regular camp activities with a special emphasis on their chosen specialty. Half of their activity periods for the session will be reserved for their chosen Specialty Camp.

Campers can enjoy their session even more by participating in the theme! Meals, campfire skits, and some evening programs will be focused around the theme and we invite all to join in on the fun. Items to bring can include costumes, coloring books, trinkets, stuffed animals, and props. Please do not send any items of value. The items sent will be used and potentially get messy. Bringing theme items is not mandatory. Our counselors also help create this fun environment with crafts, projects and face paint!
