 Overnight Information

The last Friday night of each three week camp session concludes with a cookout and a campout. There’s a “theme of the evening” and campers participate in skits, stunts, games, and a campfire. Many times, costumes are made by the camper to wear as part of the theme. The costume should be something simple, made at home, with old clothes. We encourage the campers to use their imagination and be creative.

After a good night’s rest, it’s “rise and shine” for breakfast and farm chores. All of this has to be done before parents arrive for the Awards Assembly which begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning.
