Participation in program offerings is not required. Your days can be as unstructured and carefree as you would like. You are welcome to do your own thing, or join in community activities.
Mornings After breakfast, offerings begin. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, there are two sessions with a short break in between.
Recognizing a shift in the needs and interests of our youth and their families, our focus is to provide all-ages programming, rather than separate youth and adult offerings of activities. This is, after all, family camp! There are two kinds of scheduled family program offerings; Family Fun Time and workshops.
The Family Fun Time (FFT) programming creates opportunities for togetherness and connection. It is an all-ages, inter-generational play time! Families participate in co-operative games, arts and crafts, board games, sports, lawn games. Offerings may include parachute games, corn hole, a water balloon toss, an old-fashioned game of tag, a scavenger hunt, dancing, face painting, an obstacle course, coloring, playground fun. There may even be a kickball game of parents versus kids! Parent accompaniment and participation is necessary, as childcare is not available.
If FFT is not of interest, workshops are more topically-focused and structured. They tend to vary from year to year. Some are serious. Some are fun. Past activities have traditionally been outlets for creative impulses; visual arts like painting, coloring, drawing, media arts such as photography, as well as performing arts, like dancing or music, or literary arts including writing and book discussions. Other past workshops have offered mindfulness activities like contemplative paddling or physical activities such as hiking, martial arts, or Zumba. Here is a sampling of past offerings. Children under age 12 wishing to attend a workshop should be accompanied by an adult.
Afternoons After lunch, the waterfront is open. Many families go down to the beach for a swim, or to canoe or kayak around the lake. Others engage in a game of softball, take a hike, play on the Green, or participate in table games at the Inn porch.
