What Does A Typical Day at Camp Look Like?
What does a typical day at camp look like? As children arrive, they will be greeted by the camp director and will be directed to their group leader. Each age/grade group has their own space to start their day and say hello to friends (or be introduced to new ones). Each group will then discuss the day’s upcoming fun.
Ages 3-5/entering Kindergarten: The children in this group will enjoy lots of hands-on fun throughout their day… arts & crafts, gym games, indoor/outdoor play, and snack time. On Tuesdays, they will also have water play. Once a week, full day campers will enjoy a visit by a professional entertainer (for example, a magician). Campers will also have scheduled rest/quiet time each day. Please provide a towel or yoga mat for rest time. Must be potty-trained.
Grades 1-8: Upon arriving kids will sign up for afternoon activities. Each age group (1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 5th and 6th, & 7th and 8th*) will then participate in morning activities which will include snack time. After lunch, the kids are separated into groups by the activity they have chosen (older kids have different choices than younger). Daily activities include indoor/outdoor play, gym games, arts & crafts, sports, science projects, no-bake cooking activities, and more! Additionally, each Tuesday, campers will enjoy water fun (including a water slide, and lots of water games to keep cool).
We pride ourselves on hiring the best staff: All of our camp counselors are trained to work with children, are CPR/First Aid certified, and references and background checks have been obtained.
