A Day in The Life

Unplugging from technology and connecting with nature are vital in today’s world. A few weeks away from screens is a mental and emotional gift. Here, young people rediscover the beauty of direct connection with each other and nature, fostered in dozens of physical and creative activities.

Describing a single day in the life of a camper is tough because there is no typical day - every day is truly unique! We have lots of special days and events, but we have just enough "regular" days to give some structure to our program. Our regular days, like the one outlined below, campers have a full schedule of activities, a sprinkling of free time, required rest after lunch, and a choice period where campers individually choose an activity from a list of electives that are available that day.

And, no one needs a watch or phone to tell the time! We keep on schedule throughout the day by ringing a large, good old-fashioned bell!

Evening hours are adjusted for age. Younger campers may end their evening program early and get their lights out sooner, while older campers may extend their evening program, have a longer Our Time, and have a later "lights out."

*Why are our free times referred to as "hills"? Truly, no one knows.
