Camp Radford

About the Camp

In 1981, lifetime board member Bill Radford and his family donated 45 acres of land in New London to the Club to build a camp which was named in their honor. Today, hundreds of kids (including kids from surrounding Boys & Girls Clubs) enjoy going to Camp Radford every summer.

Kids who attend camp get the opportunity to experience a new environment, sunshine and fresh air. They also participate in a wide variety of outdoor activities including swimming, fishing, hiking, scavenger hunts, a challenge course, stargazing, campfire meals and crafts.

The camp is located about an hour from the Club on the Little Wolf River and is surrounded by natural wetlands. The camp’s facilities include an arts and crafts building, a main cabin that features a kitchen, bathrooms and rustic bunk beds that sleep 32 people as well as a fishing dock, play equipment, gaga pit, archery area and a basketball hoop.

In 2017, plans are in place to create an interpretive nature trail, develop the waterfront area along the Little Wolf River by building a new fishing/swim pier, create a low ropes course, and put in a sand volleyball court.
