SUMMER CAMP

SUMMERS THAT LAST A LIFETIME

ACTIVITIES & SCHEDULES

Activities focus on building self-esteem, creating a community with a place for each individual to belong, and inspiring a desire for lifelong learning and adventure. Camp offers the unique opportunity to build confidence and character while trying new things, creating new memories, and developing as individuals all while feeling a part of a family.

Our staff is really excited to engage and have fun in our ever-evolving camp activities with your child. Some activities you may expect to hear about include, but are not limited to:

CENTRAL ACTIVITIES

A Central Part of Camp!

 

Every camper participates in our Central Activities throughout the week including our Morning Show, R&R (Recreation & Relaxation), all group activities, a weekly themed activity, and popsicles. The Closing Show takes place at the end of each week as parents get to enjoy a glimpse into Camp.

Our Core Activities are all camper choice— campers make their own day.

Recreation & Relaxation (R&R)

We understand that a day of non-stop action can be a lot. We offer R&R as a time throughout the day to recharge while being engaged with our staff. All campers will have an opportunity to participate in optional activities like water play, archery, tie dye, and friendship bracelet making as well as free choice activities. 

Activities Your Camper Might Choose To Do

Our Activity Periods are our Core Activities. Camp groups will be assigned Core Area in which campers can choose between activities. We love the ability to explore something new but understand that sometimes you just know when something isn't a good fit for you or don't want to push that comfort zone. Sometimes these Core Areas will be assigned to multiple groups which will allow campers to make friends in other groups too. Staff to camper ratios will still be maintained and the group Counselors will split so your camper always has a familiar face. Sample Core Areas and activities your camper may choose from are below:
