ACTIVITIES

Did you know a camper can “grow up” in camp and have a completely different summer each year? That’s right… you can mix and match to make your summer of choice!  Junior and Senior Village can add one Sports Clinic per week.  Senior Village can also mix in a week of VIVA! for an unforgettable summer.

Check out our Interactive Map to learn your way around camp, then check our list of over 40 different activities you can choose from to make up YOUR SUMMER OF FUN!

Creative Arts

Evening Activities

Evening and Weekend Activities at summer camp are different to regular day activities. During the day the campers pick the activity that they want to attend, and they are coached or guided to either improve on skills or produce a finished work. So no matter whether it’s arts, drama, sports or water related, the staff are further developing a skill. At night or on the weekend is where FUN and SILLINESS converge to become the TRUE camp experience!
