* Group Time is a special time in the morning in which campers and their counselor get to know one another and talk through rules and the day. They, also, typically have time for a game and/or song.
** Camp-Wide Round-Up is when the entire camp comes together for the Pledge Allegiance, stretches, songs, dances and skits. In competition weeks we will sometimes host large style competitions during this time.
*** Lunch Circus is a recess style play time. Staff members host specific activities that the campers are able to go to freely based on their specific age areas. Some of the activities we have hosted in the past have been large card/board games, hula hoop/limbo competitions, lanyards, gaga, mini golf, rockwall, laser tag, and more. Typically our 4-5 year olds have some relaxing time inside at this time to help them get ready for the rest of the day.
