 WHAT WE DO AT CAMP
Our camp day consists of eight, 45-minute periods shared among swim lessons, specialty areas
(see page 9), lunch, free swim and counselor-planned activities. All groups visit one specialty area a day. Swim lessons are reserved for Traditional Camps and a few Specialty Camps (listed in camp descriptions) and take place every morning. Most Specialty Camp-specific programming will take place before lunch.
After lunch, every group participates in free swim (CIO campers can sign up). Campers can choose to swim or play in the rec area. Counselor-led camp games and activities are based on age, interest and availability in the schedule. Activities on the first day of every session build a positive and inclusive atmosphere through name games, team building and group initiatives. Master schedules are posted on our website.
