DAILY SCHEDULE

We work hard to ensure that our daily schedules are exciting, structured and active. We also believe that choice is important – so multiple times a day there are several activity options to choose from during each activity period.

The last 10 minutes of every activity period consists of what we call “rejuvenation." During this time we encourage campers to drink water, reapply sunscreen, and take a small break before their next activity.
