Teens (entering 7th-9th grades)

SCHOOL AGE CAMP DESCRIPTION Campers are grouped by grade with the focus on traditional camp experience and the ability to introduce themselves to a wide variety of activities. Our daily structure provides campers with small and large group activities, swimming, and specialty time. Fridays include a midday celebration closing the week with theme-based programming. We meet and exceed all camper to counselor ratios as designated by the New York State Department of Health. Low camper to counselor ratios ensure a personalized and impactful experience for every child we serve.

Home base:

Campers will store bags, lunches and beat the heat and wet weather in the ‘Daga Shelter. A 4 walled indoor area. Shelter is surrounded by picnic tables where lunch will be enjoyed.

Campers will have the choice enjoy the following throughout the week:

  • Arts: A step up from “crafts”! This will include working with clay, making paper as well as jewelry, drawing and painting.
