There are 4 activity periods every day! For Blast campers, they rotate through each activity with their cabin group. For Discovery, Venture and Nitro* - campers get to choose what they would like to do for their activity periods! Want to rock climb for all 4 activities? Go for it!
 
Every day, we will list the activities that are being offered per activity period on the Activity Board. Cabin by cabin, the campers can see what's being offered and choose from that list.
 
* There are only 3 choice periods for Nitro, as the fourth activity period is used for team challenges.
 
There are FOUR categories of Activities to choose from!
 
 
Some of these categories require an additional small fee to cover supplies or transportation, but the majority are included in the camp fees. Scroll down for details.
