6:30pm-7:15pm A relaxed time at camp and a great time to play ga-ga, swing or just chat with campers.
7:15pm Evening activity. We will ask you to help lead some evening activities throughout the summer. We love new ideas too, so if you have any let us know!
8:00pm Snack time at the Head Cabin. Listen for announcements!
9:00pm Bed times differ based on the age group. All campers need to be in their own cabins 30 minutes before lights out. Evenings are a great time to reflect on the day with your campers. You can even read bedtime stories! This is the time that you will be reminded that camp is like a 7-week slumber party!

We promise that you will leave camp and still hear the bugle in your head! Bugles are played at camp to signify important times such as wake up, meals, and activities. Never heard one? Click below!
