How much choice is there in terms of activities?
We strongly believe that a combination of structured activities and choice provides the optimal growth experience. We’re not an ‘expert’ camp, and the friendships tend to develop as campers try new and different things each day. To ensure that all campers experience the full breadth of opportunities available, campers of all ages are assigned to group activities during the five activity periods. Classes range from nature, tennis to mountain biking to archery to kayaking, etc. However, to allow campers to grow and specialize in the areas they are most interested in, campers can sign up for additional time in the activity they choose during the General Swim period each day. Additionally, each Wednesday there are special free choice options called Hike Days. These are times where each camper can choose a daylong hike, mountain bike trip or canoe trip to practice skills and explore different areas of our wilderness Park. These groups are made up of both genders and a variety of age groups. As well, each Sunday morning there are two free choice activity periods and then a camp-wide special activity. Many of our return campers look forward to theses special Sunday afternoons because of the great memories they have of these community events. These are followed by another General Swim period. Evenings are usually reserved for special divisional activities like fishing, camping fires, capture the flag game or team-building activities with a great deal of camper input.
