All Fives, including those registered for Half Day Fives Homegroups, and Half Day Fours/Fives mixed ages Homegroup, attend camp for a full day from 9:00am-400pm once a week for a field trip. Trips take place on Fridays, except for the last trip of the season, which is Wednesday, August 3rd. Please note that the Half Day Fours/Fives mixed age Homegroup travels on field trips with the Fours.
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 Fives on trips we maintain a 1 to 4 counselor to camper relationship. For this reason, we do not ask for parents or caregivers to accompany groups on trips.
