  • The highlighted areas ("orange-ish" color) are when ALL of camp comes together. These are great chances for siblings/friends to see each other who might not be in the same cabin.
  • Schedules hang in cabins for campers to reference throughout the week.
  • Clubs & Teen choices may slightly vary from week-to-week.
  • Cabins are assigned to duties around camp daily.
