What is a typical day like at camp?

We strive to make each day at camp a different experience, but we always begin with an opening ceremony at approximately 8:45 AM. This opening gets kids excited about the day ahead and will feature songs and cheers to get their blood moving. Activities begin at 9 AM and end at 3:50 PM, with a lunch period at noon. Program areas consist of Nature, Sports, Theater, Arts & Crafts, Target Sports, Swimming, Outdoor Skills, and Activity Center.

Each group of no more than 12 campers will have two dedicated counselors. Groups travel to each program area led by another staff member making the ratio no less than 1 staff member for every 4 campers.
