Campers experience an array of creative, fun, and safe activities in their
unforgettable week at camp. They will bond with old friends, and make new
ones easily while having the time of their lives while they jump off the docks,
kayak, and dance their hearts out at campfire.
Campers are carefully supervised at all times by our carefully selected staff of
college students. Attendance is taken eight times each day.
Counselors closely monitor games and activities for fair play, good
sportsmanship, and fun.
Activity periods contain a mix of active games and leisure activities.
Some of the more popular games include SPUD, tetherball,
jump rope, capture the flag, and big-wheel tricycle races. Several varieties of dodgeball
will also be options each day.
Our more relaxing activities include open swim, kayak trips to our private beach
with wild blueberries, friendship bracelets, knitting,
limbo, and drama games. Reading period after
lunch gives girls time to read books or write in journals.
The program gives campers many
structured activities options, but also provides several 'free time' periods
where girls learn to interact with their peers in the same way they do at school
recess and in playing with their friends in the neighborhood.
Each evening concludes with a campfire that features singing,
dancing, contests, recognition, stories, and encouragement for good standards of
outdoor living and self reliance. The 'Thoughts for the Day' recited at
campfire include such wisdom as 'leave every place cleaner than you find it".
Campers will be closely supervised at night by counselors in the cabin who read the girls
to sleep. Counselors also patrol between the girls' cabin area and the boys' cabin area
and throughout the peninsula.
**Stay for multiple sessions and enjoy a weekend intercession program filled with pizza,
ice cream, and a trip to Hawthorne Cove.**
