Typical Camp Day
There’s no such thing as a typical camp day…
the only part of camp that is typical is
FUN, FRIENDSHIP AND LAUGHTER!
The Camp Day
If you’re coming to camp by bus, your camp day begins with a camp counselor greeting you with a big smile when your bus arrives at your stop. Games and songs and friendly chatter are part of the bus ride to camp. If you’re coming to camp by car, or bus, which begin to arrive at 9:00 am, camp counselors from your camper group will meet and greet you and accompany you to the area where camper friends and counselors are waiting.
Then it’s off to Round-Up where all the campers gather together to start the day with songs, cheers, and laughter. Two activity periods follow, with activities that the campers have chosen earlier in the day. These activities can include the many that camp offers including arts and crafts, drama, yoga, sports of all sorts, mini golf, playground, low ropes course, climbing wall, and music.
Lunch takes place with the entire camp gathering together and enjoying the individual lunches they have brought with them. Of course, cheers and songs, which are an integral part of the camp atmosphere follows, and is part of camp’s lunch experience. Then it’s off to swim in the middle of the day, with the campers receiving instructional swim as well as having recreational swim time.
Two more activity periods follow swim, again with activities selected by the campers. A cool summer snack follows before the entire camp gathers at the Round- Up area and our enthusiastic campers enjoy recounting their day’s fun, singing with their friends and looking forward to the camp days ahead. The camp day ends at 3:45 as our campers board their buses and cars to return home.
For children of working families who can come to camp by car:
Pre-Camp – Camp opens at 7:30 am with a light breakfast available, games and music with friends and counselors until 9:00 am when pre-camp campers join their camper groups with their friends arriving by bus and car.
Post-Camp – For a child who will be picked up by car later than the regular camp program day which ends at 3:45 pm, post- camp campers continue their fun at camp with their counselors. Pick up is any time in the late afternoon until 6:30 pm.
