Fall 2020

Camp Life

We know that school has to take priority but there is still a lot of time for camp fun. First, just living, eating and hanging out with camp friends makes it much easier to study, knowing you will be outside playing with friends when school is done. Then you take the afternoons and weekends to enjoy archery, riflery, climbing, outdoor cooking, swimming, hiking, crafts, ball sports and more. Add to all of this adventures like Outpost and Campfire and we think we have a recipe for a great week in the midst of a tough time for kids. We have seen so much joy among the kids that have been here this summer. They need this!

Cabin Life

This is where some big changes are noticeable from our regular program that you might be used to. To ensure adequate spacing for all campers, a maximum of 5 campers live in each cabin. Importantly, counselors do not live in cabins with the campers but sleep next door or across the pathway in their own cabins. Each cabin has an electric monitor to enable our staff to safely monitor the campers at night. Counselors still supervise much of cabin life but from the doorway. This has been very successful during our weeks of camp this summer. It does mean that you and your camper should be comfortable that no adult will be sleeping in the cabin with the campers. There is still evening patrol to keep everyone safe in the hours before the staff head to bed in their cabins next door to the campers.

 

 

Is Your Camper Planning to Come to Camp with a Friend?

Campers coming with a friend in the same grade may submit a request to be in the same group. These requests should be made as soon as you register, at a minimum two weeks before the camp session starts.  If you did not make a request during the application process, please login to your online account to add the request.
