Activities are geared to the age level of the camper and are contingent upon the weather. All activities are led by trained, qualified, and caring staff members who come from all around the world. Each camper will receive a “Badge Documentation” sheet that lists any badge requirements that were completed at camp. Campers are also responsible for daily unit and all-camp kapers.

A typical day at camp begins at 7 a.m., perhaps with a “Polar Bear Plunge” (early morning optional swim). Breakfast is served at 8 a.m. Campers enjoy a variety of morning program activities starting at 9 a.m. Some options could include arts & crafts, swimming, and archery. Lunch is served at 12:30 p.m., followed by a short rest time. Afternoon activities resume at about 2 p.m. Some options could include a creek hike, sports/games, and teambuilding challenges. Dinner is served at 6 p.m. In the evening, campers participate in unit or all-camp activities, which may include night science activities, a campfire program, a pirate hunt, or a talent show. Lights-out is generally between 8:30 – 11:00 p.m., depending on the age of the campers.
