Competition

Time

Each team competes against one another in various games.  Throughout the week, scores are tracked and the team at the end of the week with the most points is honorably named “Team of the Week.”  Treats usually follow!

Craft Time

If your camper enjoys letting creative juices flow, then craft time is just the place for you.  This segment allows him/her to try his/her hand at various artistic skills.  It’s time to shine!

Team Time

This is a great opportunity for campers and counselors to get to know one another.  They can spend time bonding over conversation or over a foosball table.  Air hockey, legos, and board games offer an option for the more competitive bunch.

Game Room

& Snack Shop

When those tummies start rumbling, snack time is the place to be.  Kids love purchasing snacks from the snack shop but can also bring food from home if that is a more suitable preference.

Day Campers bring their lunches and eat with their teams.  If there are allergies, counselors are notified so that extra caution can be used to keep kids safe.  Overnight campers will be provided lunch.
