Selected Activities

Selected activities allow boys to experience non-athletic activities which they might develop as lifelong skills. Campers will have two selected activity periods participating in two different activities of his choosing – one in the morning and one in the afternoon for a period of about 10 days.  He then begins another cycle, choosing 2 other selected activities. In this way, campers develop an appreciation and an expertise in the activity. There are more than a dozen choices. How about archery, canoeing, or sailing? Improve at tennis? Appear on stage in a play? Make a video? Develop your own pictures? Write for the camp newspaper? Whittle or make a clay sculpture? As in other areas of camp, campers learn through active instruction, by doing and by following the example of counselors and staff.
