Cabins spend the first few days of every session together. They travel as a group to every major program area (Waterfront, Sports, Creative Arts (A&C), Outdoor Life (OLS)) and have opportunities to try a variety of activities. Then, campers will choose their individual activities for the second half of the first week and all of the second week.
When it is time to choose activity periods, counselors work with campers to understand their choices and help them create a list of classes in which they would like to participate. Campers are called at random to make their selections, and create their week’s schedule. This experience teaches decision making, prioritization, patience, and learning new skills.
Along with traditional, yet individualized activities, counselors bring their unique talents and passions along with them each summer. The list of available choices and the opportunities to learn something new is great for all.
