Outside of camp, Goosey works as an English as a Second Language teacher in Boston, teaching people from all over the world.

Typical Day

A typical day at Camp Favorite can be summed up in one word: FUN! Campers work together with help from their counselors to plan a schedule centered around their interests. You may spend half the day focusing on your program specialty and the rest of the day exploring other exciting activities camp offers. An emphasis on building friendships, confidence, and leadership skills is incorporated into every activity. At Camp Favorite, no two days will be the same, but each day will be filled with laughter, exploration, and discovery.

Sleeping Quarters

Our camps have excellent sleeping quarters that allow campers to be close to nature but still have many comforts of home. Campers live in platform tents with 2-3 other girls of their age level who are enrolled in their same program. A unit is a group of nearby tents that house all of the girls in a program and generally have between 10-20 campers. Counselors sleep in separate tents near the girls. Every unit has flush toilets and electricity. See pictures of Camp Favorite sleeping quarters.

What to Bring

Packing for camp can be very hard, especially if you are a first time camper. If you're wondering what you can and cannot bring to camp, view a complete packing list that will work for all our camp programs. We recommend packing in a camp trunk (less than 12" high) or a soft duffle bag that can fit under your bed. Please label EVERYTHING with your full name.
