Rise and shine, because it's time to get your campers ready for the day! If your camp's old school, a bell or a camp bugle might get your day underway.
Every morning, the whole camp will get together around the flagpole for the Pledge of Allegiance. Cabins take it in turns to raise the flag, and it'll be your turn soon!
Eat up, because you’ll need the fuel for the fun packed day ahead. Food varies from camp to camp, but there's usually cereal, hot food, fruit, and veggie options all on offer.
After breakfast, a typical day at Summer Camp will see you head back to your cabin to clean up. The cleanest cabins usually win a prize each week, so the children take it pretty seriously!
There's normally four or five different activity periods in a day. There's lots of activities to choose from like sailing, horse riding, basketball, and crafting. You'll get stuck into lots of different things, so it's a great chance to build your skills.
Meals at camp are pretty special. Singing, chanting and announcements are a key part of lunch time. You'll soon forget what it’s like to have food in any other way!
American summers can get pretty hot - 35 degrees at some camps - so the day's rest period is a good chance to get out of the sun and grab some down time.
After a quick rest up, campers get stuck into another set of activities. Water skiing, movie making, dance sessions and archery might be on the list.
Whether you hit the lake for a swim, shoot some hoops or get in some practice for the evening's entertainment, the free time is yours. A typical day at Summer Camp is pretty hectic, so down time is always needed!
From American classics like corn dogs, sliders, and Philly cheese steaks, to spaghetti night, there's always something delicious on offer. Hungry?
Lots of camps run special theme weeks. Wild Wild West, Aliens and Cowboys, Mario Kart, Harry Potter or even Superhero themed activities might be on offer. If they're not your scene, you can always kick back around the traditional camp fire!
Lights out is staggered depending on how old the children are, but after lights out, you'll be free to chill out with the other staff. Make sure you get some shut eye so you're rested up for tomorrow's activities.
