Our division 1 campers will be able to experience and enjoy a variety of activities that are planned just for them! Each day our camper’s schedules are filled with fun and different activities such as swim, a variety of sports, arts and crafts, nature, karate, drama, yoga, cooking and many more! Our instructors customize the activity to the specific age group as well as individual needs of our campers. Each group is led and supervised by a trained and experienced head counselor who was hand-picked for this leadership position. Each group has four to five assistant counselors to help keep the day running smoothly.

The program includes hot lunch each day with many alternatives, along with morning and afternoon snacks to keep campers energized throughout the day.  Campers will participate in all kinds fun activities and swim in our Olympic size pool with our USA Coaches and Swim America certified individuals to teach and improve their swimming skills, even if they have never been in the water before attending camp.
