A Day at Camp
Everything summer camp should be – and more!
Our schedule offers the classic camp activities in a fun and socially supported environment where campers feel good about themselves and get comfortable trying new things. All activities are “challenge by choice.” Most of our campers participate in all activities with enthusiasm, others need more time to warm up before jumping in a lake or tackling the climbing wall. We use the language from our social-learning curriculum to help campers navigate throughout the day.
Depending on the day, campers will choose their own activities, or move with their GOF (Group of a Feather) to different activities.
