Programs vary by day but core group activities focus on art, mountain exploration, sports, and swimming.
Our approach to art draws inspiration from the great outdoors and nature that surrounds us here in the Green Mountains. Art projects will use natural materials, mixed media and tie-dye. All materials are supplied.
Our athletic goal is to develop young children into lifetime sporting enthusiasts. We do this with a proven program of athletic development that begins to teach our campers the FUNdamentals for successful movement essential in all athletic endeavors. Extensive research has shown that the younger children begin with structured movement-based training the faster they develop athletically. Our program incorporates instruction into fun sessions that will have your child begging to come back to camp.
Golf and tennis classes will also be offered on a weekly basis, hosted at The Drysdale Tennis School and Stratton Golf School.
Our program of outdoor activities is designed to get campers outside, educated and enjoying the scenic natural environment that is Stratton Mountain. Specific activities include map and compass work, survival skills, hiking and hiking etiquette, kayaking, and mountain safety education.
The stunning lakes and rivers of Vermont are all around us and we will instill a love and respect for water at a young age. All counselors are CPR certified and trained according to the AHA standards. The campers will swim in an outdoor pool that has both a low-end and a deep-end; they fully supervised at all times.
Team Building and Competition
We believe that teamwork and competition go hand -in-hand, and are an integral part of growing up. Our weekly team competitions foster a sense of camaraderie and passion within our campers. They'll strive to do the best for their team and in the process form closer bonds with their fellow campers, making friends for life.
Other exciting activities and camp events: Friday Pizza Party, capture the flag and Slip n Slide.
