Camp Activities Menu

Our list of classic camp activities includes gardening, swimming (with certified lifeguards at all times), arts and science projects, fishing and more. We are also offering the unique experience of getting to care for nine alpacas, 15 chickens, and our whole flock of ducks. In addition, campers will help raise ducklings and chicks! This summer is going to be one for the books!

Necessary Considerations

• Campers must must pack a lunch, snack, and waterbottle.

• Regarding peanuts and tree-nuts, we are not a nut free camp. However, we are a nut aware camp that will take special precautions for children with nut allergies.

• This camp is technology free. Counselors will not be using phones either! Counselors will be taking photos of campers each day and providing access to these photos at the end of each week.

• All children’s individual swim needs will be met. Unless we are presented with proof of swimming ability from the parents or guardians, all children will need to pass a swim test to swim. This will consist of jumping into the deep end, swimming a full lap of the pool, and treading water for one minute directly after the full lap.

• Coronavirus concerns are a top priority. Children will be socially distanced when possible, will be sanitizing hands multiple times a day, and mask usage will be required and constantly supervised.
