Campers are in for an unforgettable experience straight out of a kid's dream.
In a world free of glowing screens, campers will learn to have fun the way their
parents did: playing outside. They will engage in thrilling activities offered only at Dodgeball
Camp. These pioneering activities teach campers vital real-life skills
such as how to work alone and in teams, how to quickly adapt to new rules and
conditions, and how to react to an opponent's strategy.
In the fun of competition campers forge new friendships, and strengthen old
ones. Our carefully selected staff of college students are trained to
maintain and enforce fair play, good sportsmanship, and fun.
Fun, Fun, Fun
Each activity period offers campers a choice of activities which includes
active options, leisure activities, and waterfront activities. Active
options include dodgeball games like Chinese scatterball, Gagaball, Bombardment,
Doctor Dodgeball, and classic dodgeball. Other popular active games are
D-Day Invasion, big-wheel tricycle racing, SWAT team assault, capture the flag,
Battle of Troy, and sock wrestling.
Leisure activities include beach volleyball, Bocce ball, nature hikes, sand
castle building, tetherball, and badminton. It's no wonder
the most common thing we hear from parents as they drop off
their kids is "I wish I could go to this camp!"
Waterfront options include open swim, water tetherball, water basketball, and
kayak trips to our private beach with wild blueberries
Build confidence & independence
A day at camp contains many structured activities, but also some 'free time'
periods that teach kids how to interact with their peers, and give campers the freedom
they enjoy at school recess or playing with friends in the neighborhood.
evening concludes with a campfire that features contests, singing,
dancing, awards, recognition, stories, and encouragement for good standards of
outdoor living and self-reliance. The 'thoughts for the day' read aloud by
campers each night include such wisdom as George Washington's "It is better to
be alone than in bad company".
Safe & supervised
Attendance is taken eight times each day. Campers will be closely supervised at night by counselors in the cabin who read the campers
to sleep. Counselors also patrol between the girls' and boys' cabin areas and
throughout the peninsula.
