Build and manage a struggling campground to restore its former glory! Each summer, teach new campers activities like fishing, archery and more, while protecting them from imminent danger in this sandbox game. Keep campers happy to earn funds for improving the camp until it’s better than ever!
As the newest counselor at Camp Canyonwood, it’s up to you to successfully manage campers and restore this neglected camp to its former glory by building and modifying the campground! Summer after summer, help new groups of campers learn valuable skills and earn Badges in this charmingly strange camping life sim.
From fishing and archery to rock collecting and stargazing, teach your campers well while discovering their distinct quirks and preferences to ensure they have the best time possible. Protect them from the dangers of the great outdoors such as snakes, bears, and aliens.
A happy camper at summer’s end means more money from their parents for camp improvements, so do your best for the good of Camp Canyonwood!
Welcome to the third major Camp Canyonwood update! This past couple of months we’ve been taking the time to address the community’s most major concerns. Consider this the first major Quality of Life update, if you will. It’s our hope that this month’s changes will make the game more welcoming for newcomers and veterans alike, and will hopefully reduce a lot of the anti-fun friction! Take a look!
Introducing The Administration Desk item! Using state-of-the-art 90s computer technology, this buildable item lets you access several administrative functions! In the Equip Menu you can access your campers’ inventories all at once, and in the Structures Shop, you can purchase all large structures for your camp! In future, we hope to add even more useful features to this desk, such as Camp Data screens.
The Administration Desk can be purchased after completing Vernon’s third donation quest.
Camper Equip Menu
At the end of each day, or else anytime via The Administration Desk, you can now access a new menu that allows you to equip all of your campers with anything available in the camp’s handy Tool Shed! We hope this will make inventory management easier each day and gives an opportunity to schedule the next day’s activities!
All Shops now have a brand new look, designed to be easier to navigate and to be more informational! It displays a better, more detailed look at each available item, and includes a list of properties for each item, letting you know its various uses in-game, such as whether it’s cookable, edible, buildable, etc! The new UI also displays how many items are left to be unlocked in a given shop!
Your To-Do list just got a lot more automated! Now whenever a staff member or a camper makes a request, a To-Do note is automatically generated and pinned on your screen for your convenience!
NOTE: These types of notes will be checked off automatically once completed.
The Game Includes:
Camp activities include fishing, archery, stargazing, bug catching, rock collecting, wood chopping, hiking, exploration, and wildflower collecting. More are planned for the full release.
Each camper has a unique look and personality. Learn about them and monitor their health and happiness. If they’re unhappy (or missing), their parents may not pay at summer’s end!
Use earned profits from successful camper management to improve the campground with new decorations and accommodations.
In addition to a variety of tent and cabin options, there are dozens of collectible items, ranging from practical things like grills for cooking to cosmetic decorations like statues and watch towers.
Experience the great outdoors, including interactions with fierce predators, chubby racoons, and many different kinds of animals, bugs, flowers, and precious stones.
Complete donation quests from the camp staff to unlock new items to purchase.
Nothing strange ever happens at Camp Canyonwood. Especially things like ghosts and UFOs.
This game requires players to manage their own tasks with a to-do list. As camp counselor, you’ll choose the things YOU want to do!
Implemented extensive rework of the item systems, which will allow for easier item implementation in future updates, and will result in fewer implementation bugs in general!
Implemented extensive rework of the loot and luck systems, which will allow for quicker and easier balancing changes in future!
