Our campers spend the majority of their days out-of-doors. We offer a variety of traditional camp activities like sports, drama, music, martial arts, archery, dance, and arts and crafts. It’s no wonder parents tell us that their children come home dirty, tired, hungry and happy!
Each camp week is built around a theme that comes alive in the songs we sing, the arts and crafts we make, the games we play, and a special event. Our staff teaches campers the importance of friendship, cooperation, and respect for the environment in which we live by modeling this behavior and incorporating these values into their expectations. Ongoing staff training uses the same weekly theme, and the result is personal growth for campers and staff alike.
With safety first, we will create a meaningful, fun, engaging program that emphasizes screen-free, in-person, social interaction as well as physical activity. If safety and regulations allow, we will include as much as possible of our typical schedule of trips, beach days, and swimming.
Campers will be grouped by grade with no more than 15 campers per group. Groups will be coed.
