A Day at Camp & Sample Schedule   arrow

Each day at camp is different. Our counselors design age-appropriate curriculum to encourage exploration, discovery, and self-actualization. Each day’s lessons and activities focus on a daily theme. 

Activities include gardening, exploring natural habitats in the park, cooking, crafts, games, and more.

9:00-9:15 am — Camper Drop-Off

Parents check their campers in with counselors at our drop-off site. On the first day of camp, everyone checks in with administrative staff, and then drop off campers with counselors. 

9:15 am — Camp Begins!

Each group goes to their site for opening circle, daily schedule, and games! On the first day, campers learn rules and expectations, camp site boundaries, and safety procedures from their counselors.

9:15-12:00 pm — Morning Theme Exploration & Snack

Hands-on lessons, crafts, gardening, cooking projects, and nature walks are just a few ways campers explore the day’s theme. A break for snack keeps everyone energized.

12:00-1:00 pm — Lunch & Choice Time

Lunch at the group site, by the creek, or next to our native plant garden – we eat wherever our adventures take us. Campers reapply sunscreen and bug spray after lunch, and choose from several brief activities and/or games.

1:00-2:30 pm — Afternoon Theme Exploration & Camp-Wide Events

Campers continue to learn about the day’s theme. They may enjoy water games, yoga and/or mindfulness, and camp-wide events or games like All Camp Gatherings, Capture-the-Flag or Camp Olympics, to name a few.

2:30-3:00 pm — Closing Circle

Counselors and campers reflect on the day and gather belongings, then head to Pick-up or After Camp.

3:00-3:15 pm — Camper Pick-up

Parents sign their campers out as counselors say farewell.
