Camp Fire

At Camp Fire, our facilitators tell stories and teach students a variety of camp songs. It’s also a place where students can perform rehearsed skits for one another. After the singing and story telling, students roast marsh mellows over the fire and enjoy s’mores with one another. A true camp classic.

Game Night

Game night is centered around students having fun and playing. Students will be split up into their small groups and have different tasks assigned to them by either their teachers or chaperones. Then, it’s a race to see which team can fulfil the most tasks by the night’s end. Laughter and silliness is sure to fill the room.
