Campers get to experience a variety of activities throughout their day and week at camp. Your camper’s day begins and ends with all-camp activities, energizers, songs and group-time. Campers will swim every day in our pool or pond (weather permitting). In addition chipmunks receive group lessons two times per week. Chipmunk traditional camp is a fun and exciting program with lots of personal attention by caring and well trained staff.
