Activities

   

So many activities, so much fun.

At Alsing, campers are encouraged to explore their boundaries in a safe and supported environment.  Our program is “challenge by choice”, meaning that while all campers follow a group plan, our Coaches help campers try new activities in a way that helps the camper feel safe, supported and confident.  With reduced anxiety, most of our campers are able to try things they never expected.

Our activities are a combination of traditional camp activities, listed below, as well as specialty days, field trips and evening activities.  

Daily Activities include:

Archery

Arts & Crafts

Basketball

Canoeing

Capture the Flag

Climbing Wall

Disc Golf

Fishing

Kayaking

Low-Ropes Course

Scavenger Hunts

Specialty days and field trips

Specialty days and field trips include Star Wars Day, Lake St. George, Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm, day hikes and visits to the Maine coast.

 

Star Wars day at camp

For our campers who stay for a full 4-week session, we provide an intersession trip in Maine to explore the beautiful area surrounding our camp.  

 

Evening activities include campfires, movie night, counselor hunt (a camper fav!), dances and the closing talent show where campers show off their skills or simply laugh and clap as a member of the audience – either way, they have a blast and feel an incredible sense of accomplishment as our session is completed.

 

CAMPI TALKS (Conversations About My Personal Interest)

Every camper will have the opportunity, if they want, to present a 5-10-minute talk in front of the whole camp about something they feel passionately about.  In preparation for the talk, campers fill out a planning document that helps them think about why they love this topic and what might be interesting about it to others.  The audience then asks questions and there is a lively back and forth as campers get to share about themselves and we get to know them better.  Many of our campers who choose not to present are the best audience members and ask the most insightful questions.  Past CAMPI topics include birds, books, Pokemon, arcades, search & rescue and astronomy.
