When it comes to the daily schedule, we find that it is best to create a balance of structure and freedom. Each day campers progress through a series of instructional periods, games, meals, gatherings, and other organized activities
To complement this structured agenda, we incorporate plenty of rest and free time into the schedule every day so campers feel relaxed and at home. We believe these moments of of downtime and freedom are so important! Although we often mix up our daily routine with special trips and events, a normal day’s schedule looks something like this:
8:00AM - Reveille: Camp awakens with Leebo blowing the bugle, followed shortly by a ceremonial raising of the American flag. We say the “Pledge of Allegiance” and sing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” to start our day off with a sense of respect, pride, and appreciation for our country.
8:30 - Breakfast: Every breakfast is made up of two courses: cereal and hot. We take our time to fuel up for the day and make general announcements.
9:15 - Inspection: After breakfast we brush our teeth, get ready for the day, and take a few minutes as a group to clean and straighten the cabin living spaces. We consider cleanliness an important component of living together!
10:00 - Morning Devotions: A time for reflection and enjoyment! You can read more about our Devotions in our “Philosophy” section.
