Summer Day Camp for Campers Entering the 2nd or 3rd Grade

for campers entering the 2nd or 3rd grade

Log Cabin campers sign up for five interest groups a day. Whippoorwill is all about free choice – campers get to choose the activities that interest them. Campers can try something new each day or build their skills by choosing the same activity again.

Some of the favorite activities include:

  • Nature exploration
  • Gardening
  • Learning about the farm animals
  • Arts and crafts
  • Kayaking
  • Hiking
  • Drama
  • Land fishing
  • Crawdad-catching
  • Inner tubing in the pond
  • Pottery
  • Camp newspaper
  • Free swimming
  • Rappelling
  • Rock climbing
  • Field games
  • Archery
  • Pony rides
  • Outdoor cooking
  • Creek exploring
  • Archaeology
  • Tie-dye
  • And Much more!

Campers spend one hour in each activity group. Sometimes an activity fills up; we ask campers to have a second choice in mind. If the activity continues to fill up and by Wednesday your camper has not done that activity, let us know and we will put your child’s name at the top of the list for the next day’s group.

We recommend that campers attend Whippoorwill for two sessions to participate in all activity choices or to spend more time in a favorite activity.
