1. Do campers get to swim every day?
Yes! Everyone swims every day! The Pioneer and Trailblazer groups have a structured swim lesson for the first 15 minutes, then recreational swim for the remaining 20-25 minutes. The Explorer groups have a structured pool game for their first 10-15 minutes at the pool, with recreational swim after. Our camp counselors are also in the pool with the campers at all times.
2. What does my camper need to bring each day?
In each campers backpack they will need a water bottle, towel, sunscreen (we recommend putting this in a Ziploc bag if it is a lotion), and clothes to change into after pool. We ask that campers come to camp wearing their bathing suit each day. Males wear their trunks as shorts, while females wear their suit under a shirt and shorts.
3. What happens at a camp overnight?
We offer eight overnights over the course of the summer (Weeks 3-10). Overnights are an awesome extension of the camp day. There will be a delicious camp dinner, extra swim (weather permitting), field games, and s’mores at the campfire before bed! On Friday campers will wake up to a hot camp breakfast and hop right into their camp day.
4. What are some activities that my camper might do during the camp day?
Campers participate in a wide variety of activities during their camp day and week. These include: swimming, arts and crafts, nature, horseback riding, sports, science, hiking, archery, and so much more! A day is generally divided into 8-10 forty minute blocks, which means 8-10 different and awesome activities each day.
5. Do I need to pack a lunch for my camper?
No. Lunch, as well as a morning and afternoon snack, is provided each day. Lunch includes a main entree (kid friendly items such as hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, etc.), salad, a vegetable (peas, green beans, corn, etc.), a fruit (pears, peaches, fruit cocktail, etc.), and a “crunch” (pretzel, Frito’s, potato chip, etc.). We also offer peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (or just peanut butter or just jelly) each day.
