Just like our standard summer camp sessions, our spring break program is designed to help campers unplug, explore nature, and connect with fellow campers. Led by our highly trained staff, our spring break program offers a welcoming place for campers age 10-14 to enjoy their school break.
Campers will bunk in our heated cabins, dine in our dining hall, and participate in familiar camp games and activities alongside a group of .approximately 40 fellow campers. In addition, campers will choose from 3 unique projects to pursue during their week at camp as part of our "Project Your Way" program.
Each project track is led by staff with specific knowledge of the subject and is designed to foster creative thinking while giving campers the opportunity to learn a brand new skillset. Project work will comprise approximately 1/3 of our session programming while the other 2/3 is filled with our standard camp activities. (Check out a "typical" day at spring break camp below!)

A "Typical" Day at Spring Break Camp
The day starts at 8 AM with some optional programming before breakfast. Breakfast is servied from 8:30 - 9:15 AM. The morning activity period will generally be set aside for "Project Your Way" programming where students will work with their instructors on their projects. After the morning program period, campers can continue working on their projects or participate in some free-time. Free time are moments throughout the day set aside specifically to allow kids the opportunity to be together in an unstructured (but supervised) setting.
Lunch is served at 12:30. After lunch, campers will have a short rest hour to take a break from the day's activities. During this time, campers can read, draw, nap, or play quiet games with their cabin mates. Our afternoon activity period starts at 2:30 PM, during which time campers will work with our staff to co-create a list of game and activities to enjoy. Following our afternoon activity, campers can continue working on their projects or enjoy a bit of free-time before dinner.
The evenings are set aside for all-camp group activities. These activities are often camper-created and camper-led and can include skits, musical performances, hikes, running around games, or any number of other ideas campers and staff dream up! After our evening program, we enjoy a small camp fire and some "mellow time" to wind down from the day before we head off to bed.
