A Typical Day

While no two days at camp are ever the same, we do stick to a pretty regular schedule! The morning begins at 8 a.m. with Reveille. We raise the flag and eat breakfast together, then clean up our bunks and head out for a morning filled with activities. After lunch and Rest Hour, we’re recharged and ready for more program fun. After a shower, dinner and some free play, we enjoy an evening activity and snack before it’s time for bed.
