After you awake from your heated bunkhouse each morning, you’ll enjoy a delicious breakfast in the dining hall. Then, you’ll experience classes which give you a chance to try out all sorts of cool things like games, crafts, nature studies and sports.

After lunch you’ll spend time at afternoon rotations. These include swimming, archery, swings (from a huge tree!), canoeing, crafts and more.

Next comes dinner and then right to games for the whole camp. You’ll end your evening with a campfire under the stars.
