What are Cabin Activities?

Cabin Activities are activities that are chosen by your child’s cabin counselors and are done as a cabin three mornings a week. These could include a group hike, making a cabin flag, playing a sport against another cabin, or going canoeing.

What are Choice Activities?

Choice Activities are the 4 activities that campers choose at the beginning of each week (Sunday) and then participate in through the week (2 in the morning & 2 in the afternoon). This doesn’t mean that you won’t get to try other activities, but it’s a great way to learn and build upon a skill.

What are Evening Programs?

Evening Programs are games put together by our staff that are played by all of camp during a certain time period after dinner. Games are generally played with each cabin being its own team and working together to complete certain tasks for points. The next day at lunch the winners and runners-up are announced and those points could go towards winning the Director’s Trophy at the end of the session!
