Exploration at a glance

Our camp day starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. Campers are separated into four groups based on the last grade they completed. Campers enjoy the day participating in a wide variety of activities at the resort. On select days, campers may be offered “Activity Select” programming, where they have the choice to participate in a specific sport or activity with a range of difficulty or challenge. These programs are designed to provide opportunity for campers to progress their skills in their interested disciplines including but not limited to biking, hiking, and swimming.
