Each day at camp is different. Our counselors design age-appropriate curriculum to encourage exploration and discovery. Every year we add something new, but some things stay consistent—each day's lessons and activities focus on a daily theme. 

A Day at Camp

Camp programs are structured around fun, educational group goals that provide consistency throughout the session. Daily themes inspire curiosity as campers participate in age-appropriate activities, which might include nature and habitat exploration, farm chores, crafts, games, and more. 

8:30–8:45 am — Camper Drop-Off*

Caregivers check their campers in with counselors at drop-off sites each day. *Curiosity Club drop-off is at 8:45 am

8:45 am — Camp Begins!

Each group goes to their site for opening circle, daily schedule, and games! On the first day, campers learn rules and expectations, camp site boundaries, and safety procedures from their counselors.

9:15–12:00 pm — Morning Theme Exploration & Snack

Hands-on lessons, crafts, animal chores, and nature walks are just a few ways campers explore the day’s theme. A break for snack keeps everyone energized.

12:00–1:00 pm — Lunch & Choice Time

Lunch at the group site, in the woods, or atop the drumlin – we eat wherever our adventures take us. Campers reapply sunscreen and bug spray after lunch, and choose from several brief nature activities.
