What are Special Days?Special Days are awesome! A special day is NOT your normal day at camp. Special days have themes, for example: Rock Star Day, Pirate Day and Medieval Day. We change the themes every year, although occasionally we may repeat one if it is very popular. Our counselors really get into dressing up and we normally start out the morning with a crazy skit at breakfast.
So what kinds of activities do you do?Special days are great opportunities to play large all-camp group games like Gold Rush, Battle for the Sahara (a massive water fight!), The Amazing Race, Life and Death in the Forest, and of course, everyone's favorite- CAPTURE THE FLAG!
We also do things such as scavenger hunts, clue games, game shows, canoe wars, giant volleyball, foam noodle jousting, rolling downhill inside a stack of inner tubes, blanket drag races, slip 'n slide, cardboard raft building, various craft projects and much more!
When planning activities, we recognize that 10 year olds and 15 year olds do not always have the same interests. Campers that are entering 9th grade or above in the fall are sometimes assigned to different activities.
