Traditional Camp: Pre-K – 8th Grade
Our Traditional Camp is full of activities parents remember and kids love, like arts and crafts to archery, outdoor living skills to Red Cross swim lessons, sports and field games to nature hikes, Hale Day Camp has it all.
Traditional Camp includes: Kinder Camp, Lower Camp, Middle Camp and Upper Camp.
(5 to 1 camper to staff ratio, campers must be 4 years of age by January 1)
With a low camper to staff ratio, we can focus more individual attention on the campers and have more time for fun without having to deal with conflicts. Campers have a chance to enjoy a variety of activities with the focus on learning to swim and playing creatively. Having fun in the outdoors and making friends is what Kinder Camp is all about. Kinder Campers have an afternoon quiet time each day. Parents may join in each session as Kinder Camp meets at the Campfire Circle for a special lunch-time cookout.
(6 to 1 camper to staff ratio)
Lower Campers enjoy the same activities as Kinder Campers with one extra activity period in exchange for the afternoon quiet period. Parents may join in each session as Lower Camp meets at the Campfire Circle for a special lunch-time cookout.
(7 to 1 camper to staff ratio)
Middle Campers partake in structured periods that include all traditional camp activities. Each day Middle Campers also have a group choice time. Each session, campers and their parents can attend an “Overday,” from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., where they enjoy a cookout dinner, play water games, sing songs and eat S’mores.
(8 to 1 camper to staff ratio)
Upper Campers choose their own activity schedule each session and longer activity periods allow more opportunity to shape their camp experience. Each session, campers have the opportunity to stay for an overnight camping experience, which includes setting up the campsite, large group games, campfire and s’mores as well as a night hike. The “Overnight” allows campers to experience, some for the first time, camping in the woods! Offering a unique experience for them in a safe, familiar location, allows campers an opportunity to become more independent and builds their self-confidence.
