Creating Unforgettable & Choiceful Programs

We have a knack for thinking outside the box and we genuinely value the input of campers. You'll often catch us passionately discussing and sharing ideas on how we can incorporate more camper choice into our programs. Additionally, we offer a range of free resources that include exciting and readily available games.

We've got some ready-to-go ideas you can take and run with. Some tips for programs:

  • Ask kids (and staff) what they want to see, and ask for feedback after you deliver.
  • Do a lot with a little. Grab costumes from the thrift store or ask for donations. Make props out of cardboard. Every special piece helps bring the activity to life.
  • Have options. Campers won't like the same games and activities, and that's okay. Don't make the activity you have planned the only thing they can do.
