Itinerary

As soon as you drop your camper off, they jump straight into activities to get warmed up for the day. Usually, these involve group games to get moving and to get to know one another. Usually, mornings are jam-packed with 2-3 fun activities!

Activities occur throughout the day and are designed to keep campers engaged and interacting with one another. Specific activities and crafts will vary depending on the week.
