The Day Camp begins at 9am and ends at 4pm. Once Coach Beaury finishes his Daily Staff Meeting he addresses the campers with the “thought for the Day” and Camp begins.

Camp is very organized. Even our free time is limited and always supervised. Each morning a new daily schedule of all activities is available and reviewed with campers in their morning “team meetings”.
