Choosing Activities

Structured Choice

Our innovative Structured Choice program gives campers the opportunity to experience more than 35 different and exciting activities, while also being guided towards our core sports and waterfront activities.

Each weekday there are three 1-hour activity periods per morning and three 1-hour activity periods per afternoon. Campers in each age group have 2, 3 or 4 activity choices per hour. Structured Choice enables campers to pursue activities they are most passionate about, while also building friendships with children outside of their own bunk.

Our unit leaders in each age group are responsible for tracking the activities each camper chooses, and helping them achieve a balanced schedule.

A typical Structured Choice schedule looks like this (though every day of the summer is different!):

TimeActivity
1st Morning PeriodTennis, Soccer, Basketball
2nd Morning Period Ceramics, Woodshop, Dance
3rd Morning PeriodSwim, Inflatables, Boating, Fishing
1st Afternoon Period Arts & Crafts, 3D Printing, Baseball
2nd Afternoon PeriodRock Climbing, Archery, Filmmaking, Lacrosse
3rd Afternoon PeriodClinic - A period for a camper to focus on their favorite activity

Clinic

This is our newest program innovation! Each Monday campers get to pick an activity they are passionate about and participate in it for 5 straight afternoons during the final activity period of the day. This allows campers more time to pursue their favorite activities, and allows for greater skill building.

Clinic activity options change each week. Examples:

TimeActivity
Week #1Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Filmmaking, Ceramics, Ropes Course / Rock Climbing
Week #2Lacrosse, Tennis, Woodshop, Cooking, 3D Printing, Archery
Week #3Hockey, Flag Football, Music, Photography, Gymnastics and Mountain Biking

CLINIC is also when travel sports teams have their practices, and when our Broadway-style theater productions have rehearsals
