One safety strategy for Summer Camp 2022 will be the use of cohorts within our program “pods.” Cohorts are groups of up to fifteen campers and staff that will live, play, and eat together during their time at camp. A pod is a grouping of 3-4 cohorts within the same age-based program.
Below is more information about how these programs will work in a cohort/pod environment.
Week One: Stepping Up (11-12yo), ACE, Excursion, Watersports, Campcraft, (all 13-16yos), One Step Further (20yo leadership program)
- Stepping Up (11-12yo) – These campers participate within their cohorts in classic camp activities while focusing on learning independence and building self-confidence. Some of these activities include swimming, fishing, water craft, sports, and games and field activities.
- ACE (13-16yo) – In All Camp Experience (ACE), campers will participate with their cohorts in classic camp activities along with specialized experiences led by “expert” activity leaders. Whether it be basketball, arts & crafts, magic, or STEM, ACE is the place to come explore everything camp has to offer!
- Excursion (13-16yo) – Get ready to see the world from the comfort of camp! In this unique take on our travel program, Campers in Excursion will spend the session with their cohorts on a voyage like no other as they use their imaginations and creativity to “cruise” to different ports of call. You won’t need a plane ticket or passport for this adventure – Excursion is going to bring them to you!
- Watersports (13-16yo) – Even though Watersports will not be working toward SCUBA certification in 2022, participants can plan to spend their session with their cohorts enjoying fun in the water in many different ways – Water fights, swimming, paddle boarding, and snorkeling, just to name a few. And that’s not all – come experience fun on land with campfires, outdoor movies, and more!
- Campcraft (13-16yo) – Campcraft will not be traveling to an offsite location this year, but participants will still enjoy the central themes of this program – outdoor life skills, nature, campfires, and tent living! Campers will participate with their cohorts in activities designed to bring out the best of their resilience and teamwork, while still enjoying the relaxed pace of the program.
- OSF (20yo) – This leadership training program is offered to past participants of any Camp One Step program who want to take One Step Further (OSF). Notifications to eligible applicants for the 2022 season have been sent. If you are interested in this program, please reach out to Hopper at [email protected] or Devin at [email protected]
Week Two: Standard (7-10yo), Excel (17-19), and Seabees (20+)
- Standard (7-10yo) – In this program, campers will enjoy the fun of classic camp with activities by cohort like swimming, fishing, water craft, sports and games, and field activities. They will experience the joy of time away from home and newfound friendships.
- Excel (17-19yo) – In Excel, friendships – whether lifelong or newfound – are really what it’s all about. Time spent bonding over conversation is just as important as volleyball, swimming, or Chopped food challenges. Excel cohorts will revel in their favorite camp activities in their last years as campers while serving as role models for the younger kids on campus.
- Seabees (20+) – The Seabees Leadership Program is for former campers 20 years and older who have limitations due to their disease, treatment, or other factors. Guided by facilitators, this program focuses on personal growth through achievement and service to camp. We are in need of additional facilitators for this program. If you are interested in working with active adults charged with mentoring, service to camp, and personal growth, this would be a great program for you!
