Structured Elective Schedule

Campers take 10 activities each 2-week session. They choose their own activities before camp begins. By scheduling in advance, we can keep our class sizes small and continue to offer personalized instruction provided by experienced teachers and professionals. Campers enjoy creating their own schedules, exploring new interests, and improving skills in activities they already love. With our creative offerings, we can help fill the void that is being created by a lack of funding for the arts available to many schools.

We offer about 45-50 activities each summer. Campers choose their top 17 activities, in order from 1-17. They generally get most of their top 10 choices. Some activities are double periods, so those activities take up 2 periods of each camper’s schedule. We have 5 periods each day, alternating between A and B days. This keeps things fun and interesting so campers aren’t repeating the same activities day after day.

The list of activities on each page is representative of what we have offered in past summers and gives a good general idea of what we’ll offer in a specific summer. Activities are generally finalized in mid-April and shared with enrolled camper families at that time.
