DAILY AGENDA

Our camp day starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. Campers will be assigned to a home group based on the last grade they completed. Campers start their day with a morning briefing, AM Snack, and activity prep time. Each day is broken into two parts, “Activity Select” programs and “Home Room” group programs. Groups break for lunch between 11:45a and 1:00p. After a long day participating in a wide variety of activities, groups finish the day at 3:30p with a snack and wrap up activity. At 4:00pm groups will head outside to the play field for pickup.
