Location: Sound View Camp in Longbranch
Cost: $400.00 Includes camper t-shirt.
Fall 2017: Grades 4-12
Activities: Unplug, connect, and explore! Those are the words we live by in our daily activities. Sessions ranging from archery and drama to high ropes course and gaga ball (so fun!) keep our mornings busy. There is plenty of camper led time exploring the beach, the forest and more. We spend our afternoons down at the waterfront swimming, canoeing, and playing group games. Evening activities wrap up our day: counselor hunt, cookouts, and the camp dance for 6th grade and older.
Leadership Program: Staff in Training (S.i.T.) is a two year program designed for youth in grades 10-12 who have a desire to work with younger children and to be peer leaders for summer camp. They participate in leadership and skill development workshops each day, help lead all-camp activities, songs and games, and assist staff members in the supervision of younger campers. Participants gain a new level of personal responsibility, self confidence, and skills for working with children. We expect interested youth to have a high level of maturity and the ability to live and work closely with peers. Upon completion of the two year program (two back to back summers enrolled as a S.i.T.), participants are invited to volunteer as Counselor Assistants the following summer. The Leadership Program fee is $250.00 per camper.
Why Camp Fire?
Camp Fire was created to guide young people on a journey of self-discovery. At Camp Fire camps, youth have the opportunity to dig deep inside and discover their sparks, their personally defined ideas of potential. Our society needs a generation of future leaders who understand the dynamics of community living, appreciate inclusion, and are one with nature. At Camp Fire, we’re proud of the role we play in guiding young lives to appreciate themselves and the world they live in.
