Each group of campers then moves through three, fiftyminute activity periods, which include Arts & Crafts, Athletics and Nature Explorations. These activities are taught by specialists and assisted by counselors. All activities are age-appropriate and focused on the developmental needs of each age group. Campers bring their own lunches and eat with their assigned groups in a relaxed setting.
Each group of campers is staffed by a head counselor and two junior counselors. Our head counselors and activity specialists are faculty or teachers-in-training at Greens Farms Academy. Junior counselors are either college students or current high school students. Our counselors are selected for their energy, creativity, and enthusiasm and, above all, for their love of working with children.
After lunch, counselors lead quiet time, consisting of drawing, board games, storytelling, and reading. Then comes beach time, when campers are driven to a local Westport beach for swimming and beach activities. A certified lifeguard is always on duty. Counselors check-in and check-out campers directly with their parents or guardians each day.
