UPPER CAMPThe UPPER CAMP is for campers entering grades 5-8 in the fall. This well-balanced program includes sports activities (each week a different sport is featured), woodworking and cooking, fine and performing arts (arts & crafts, dance, drama, and music), gymnastics, ropes course challenges, and much more (please see the Activities page for a complete list of offerings). All campers receive daily Red Cross swim instruction by our certified staff, and enjoy a recreational swim period in the afternoon.
The camp day is divided into nine 35-minute periods, so the campers have the opportunity to experience many different activities every day. In addition, campers have an elective period in the afternoon where they can choose which activity to attend, based on their interests.
The Upper Camp program is designed to meet the needs of adolescents. We understand that many of these children have been at camp since they were young, so we strive to create an age-appropriate program that includes new and creative activities.
The counselors who work in Upper Camp are selected based on their maturity and experience in working with this population. Campers in Upper Camp participate in special programs, including the annual camp play, field trips, athletic events (such as a decathlon and Olympics week), carnivals, and the camp dance.
All campers are expected to follow the camp rules and be able to regulate their own behavior. If you think your child will need extra assistance at camp in order to have a positive experience, please call to speak with us before camp begins.
