Nearly Fours / Fours Field Trips

All Fours groups, including those registered for Half Day Homegroups attend camp for a full day from 9:00am-400pm once a week for a field trip. Trips take place on Fridays.

We take air-conditioned, chartered buses to age-appropriate locations for activities that are educational and lots of fun. Our priority is to take trips that give campers the opportunity to be in a natural setting or a museum worth exploring as a group. In order to maintain a very safe adult to camper ratio, Specialists accompany home groups as additional adults on field trips. For Fours on trips we maintain a 1 to 3 or 1 to 4 counselor to camper relationship. For this reason, we do not ask for parents or caregivers to accompany groups on trips.
