We run a four day camp, Monday to Thursday. Since we often run up to the Fourth of July weekend, we do not run camp on Friday before the holiday. However, there is a late-night (campfire) and overnight option on Thursday night. Campers in 4th grade units and above are welcome to stay for the campfire and go home at 9pm. Campers in 5th grade units and above, including CAs, are welcome to stay overnight in the meadow and leave Friday morning. There is no additional cost for campfire or overnight. Dinner, breakfast, and snacks are provided for campfire and overnight. We consider the campfire and overnight a good step toward camper independence, especially if the camper has no had any previous overnight camp experience. One night away from home (but close by) with friends to get them used to the idea. It is especially important as our campers get older and approach their 7th grade year and Outdoor School, where they will be away from home for the week.
