Throughout the season campers participate in activities that are common to all age
Opening meetings provide
the campers with information they need to begin
their day. Each group is assigned an outdoor meeting
space where campers meet counselors to discuss
daily events. Warm-up games, attendance, club
choices and other nitty gritty things happen before
each group goes to first period activities. The
day ends where it started or at a designated camp-wide
assembly area. At closing meeting counselors and
campers wrap up the day.
Special Events, notices and announcements
are included in our Monday Newsletter which is emailed
each Monday. News Items include:
notes from staff
and campers take time to brainstorm ideas weeks in advance.
These ideas are then brought to life in the material
presented by staff to campers. Art work, dances, songs,
games, foods and decorations are coordinated for presentation
at Theme Day. Parents, siblings and friends are invited
to attend. Our first week's theme is yet to be determined.
Special outdoor family picnic, Wacky World of Sports
are other ideas in the works among staff and campers
ready for another exciting summer session.
Aqua Day our campus is transformed into a water park with water rides and water games
A pre-selected period beyond the traditional club time, when campers join a
long-term project with a culminating event or new experience for Voyagers and Pioneers. Ga-Ga ball and 9 sqaure in the Air has been added to the weekly schedule due to popular demand.
Preps, Voyagers and Pioneers go on three to four trips during the five- week session. Each division boards buses for out of-town destinations such as pools, lakes, water and amusements parks.
Detailed trip schedules are prepared early. Par- ents are notified in writing and sign permission
forms in advance of all trips.
Camp Canteen at the end of the Amsterdam Avenue walk- way sells snacks and sundry items to campers, parents, staff and guests. All campers receive one free A.C.T. tee shirt and bag that they must wear on trips and theme days to aid in camper identification. Opportunities to visit the Canteen during the day are scheduled. Campers in first through ninth grades must establish a “canteen account” to avoid carrying money throughout the day. They may make pur- chases within the limit set by each family. More details are included in the welcome package distributed when campers are enrolled
