Owls enjoy camp with more freedom as they begin to individualize their schedule with Free Choice. Owls will have scheduled activities and daily swim lessons with their group in the mornings, followed by afternoon Free Choice. Owls scheduled activities will include archery, woodworking, tennis, gymnastics, ceramics, art, rocketry, and nature exploration. Their afternoon Challenge Program will include additional time in favorite activities created by Owls Division Head counselors. Owls Schedule Highlights

Beginning in the Owls Division, campers participate in the Challenge Program. Prior to the start of camp, all campers are asked to rank their activity choices from a list of 15-20 activities and sports, that are then incorporated into their afternoon program. This is a favorite feature for many campers because they make their own decisions and they may change their activities each session.
Tennis is a fun-filled, exciting program that helps build confidence and technique in a safe group setting. Beginning in third grade, campers are given individual instruction in forehand, backhand, and serve. The emphasis is on technique as well as playing games. Additional time may be selected during the afternoon Free Choice Program. Campers may bring their own racket or use the camp rackets.
Under the guidance of a certified instructor, small groups are given individual instruction using Recurve Bows and fiberglass arrows for optimum performance. Campers may qualify for awards using the National Junior Archery Development Program. Archery teaches skills such as hand-eye coordination, perseverance, self-control, and mental discipline - and it’s fun!
Campers will receive an introduction to rocketry by building their own rocket under the guidance of our staff. At the end of each session, campers will be ready to launch their rockets on the athletic fields.
