Camp-Wide Wednesday Activities

Camp-Wide Wednesday Activities  Camp-Wide Wednesday Activities

Campers of all ages gather on Wednesday for a camp-wide activity such as a game or song, followed by mixed-age activities.  Campers may choose to participate in activities such as capture the flag, a clowning workshop, a sculpture project, or making a camp-wide disco.  This is a fun opportunity for children in different Homegroups to get to know each other, as well as for siblings to spend time together.  The second Wednesday of each session is a camp theme day such as “Block Party” or “Intergalactic Cafe” .  In addition to camp-wide activities related to the theme, each Homegroup decides how they will participate in the theme.  Wednesday afternoons are set aside for extended Homegroup projects, collaborations between groups, and activities related to the theme day.

Field Trips

On Fridays, the Eights through Twelves travel by air-conditioned charter bus to locations such as the Bronx Zoo, Coney Island, Aviator Sports, Governor’s Island, and Liberty Science Center. Our goal is to choose trip locations that give campers a chance to be active and in as much “green,” natural space as possible.
