Santa Cruz Overnight Camp


Regular Activity Days

Every week there are 3-4 activity days, each with 6 one-hour lesson periods. For our 2-week sessions, campers handpick from dozens of activities to design their camp experiences. They may adjust agendas on day two if they wish, but otherwise follow their same journeys of personal discovery all session long.  For our 1-week sessions, we will have a hybrid program where at times they will stay in their group to do activities which helps bond the group during their shorter time here. We also offer Specialty Activities for those campers who wish to focus on one area of specialty.
