SHORT BUS RIDE TO CAMP The bus ride goes really fast because the counselors are so fun! They have us singing songs, waking up cows, and laughing all the way to camp. MORNING FLAG CEREMONIES We say the pledge, and our counselors show us a silly skit to remind us of ways we can be honest, respectful, responsible, and caring at camp. COUNSELOR TIME Sometimes our counselor tells us stories, sometimes we play games, and sometimes we talk about stuff like friends and hobbies. ACTIVITY TIMES Our counselors are always showing us how we can help each other have fun, like helping to aim for the bullseye in archery. BOATING This is one of our favorite things to do. If the water isn’t too choppy, we get to boat every week! Our lifeguard teaches us how to move forward, backwards, and turn around. The water is really shallow, and even if we’re not strong swimmers, we are always safe by wearing lifejackets. PROGRAM TIMES We learn about nature, make crafts, build campfires, create skits, experience team building, play sports, and lots more. LUNCH We always have lunch with our counselor and the rest of our tribe. The counselors will sing songs during lunch, too, and we get to sing along. Don’t forget to throw away your trash and always recycle! SWIMMING We get swim time every afternoon. Some people like to swim, others like to hang out on the beach and play in the sand. Sometimes we work as a team to build really big sand castles. 4
