Daily Schedule

No matter the session, all weekdays of camp are structured the same. Our standard animal, science, nature, adventure, and arts and crafts activities are offered all summer long. For campers who stay longer than a week, the weekends are a TREAT and they have a different schedule than the weekdays. Campers also have fun with our themed weeks!

The Weekends

For campers staying with us for more than one week of camp, they will be doing what we call Stay Over. Our two week sessions were designed to have the ultimate weekend fun, but we also have activities scheduled on the Saturday stay over for campers staying for multiple one-week sessions.

Between weeks 6 and 7 and weeks 8 and 9, we have a fun weekend called Stay Over Weekend. Campers enjoy sleeping-in and having a relaxed come-as-you-like breakfast. They then decide as a cabin how they want to spend their day! This is a time for campers to spend time in the pool, have a massive water balloon fight, or go for a hike. Many cabins think of fun and unique ways to spend their day! Lunch and dinner are kept on the same schedule as they are during the week and Siesta is extended to allow campers time to recharge from their busy week! An activity is planned for the day that is optional for campers. We've been known to rent a huge inflatable waterslide that campers spend hours on! The relaxing day ends with an Evening Activity that is only offered during these sessions.
