Each day Campers enjoy five activity periods of their choice, two trips to the camp store, an evening program and cabin time. Sample Daily Schedule
Buckaroos and Pathfinders have a predetermined schedule that allows them to experience camp as a group with the same leaders each day. They participate in activities with campers their same age and get the individual attention they need. Canoeing, archery, B.B. Guns, horseback riding, swimming in the pool, playing at the waterfront, slip & slide, nature, arts & craft and banana boat are just sample of the exciting activities your Buckaroo/Pathfinder will experience.
Each night after the evening program Blazers and Rangers sign up for the next day’s activities. Campers can choose to sign up with friends or individually. Each day they will select from water and land activities. Caring counselors help campers navigate through the sign up process. On Wednesday of each session, the Activities Director takes extra time to make sure that each camper has gotten the opportunity to sign up for their desired activities.
Our oldest campers have the opportunity to sign up first for activities, assuring that their last years at camp are jam-packed with everything they love. On Sunday, Adventurers will receive the special opportunity to pick a “track” which will be scheduled during half of their regular activity periods. The tracks are Specialty Camp (pre-registration required), Outdoor, Leadership, Media or Main Camp. "Main Camp" means choosing activities the same way they did as Rangers.
Campers age 9 to 15 can enhance their stay by registering for a Specialty Camp. Specialty Camps options are Mini Bikes, Wakeboard/Waterski, Wrangler, Ceramics, and Expeditions. Specialty Camp campers stay onsite with campers their age and participate in all regular camp activities with a special emphasis on their chosen specialty. Half of their activity periods for the week will be reserved for their chosen Specialty Camp. For an additional fee, this is a great way to focus on skill development in some of Cosby’s favorite programs.
