Typical Day

Camp begins with the opening flag ceremony, which is followed by your unit's fun activities. Camp offers a swimming pool, outdoor cooking areas, and a large program building for daily activities. Campers bring lunches and then go into their afternoon programs. The day ends with a closing flag ceremony and cool end-of-day events.
