IMG_4760.jpg

Spend your summer days exploring and playing at Skyline with your fellow campers and counselors in the sun or rain. Campers will spend the mornings with similarly aged peers and decide as a group which activities to do. In the afternoons, after eating lunch and swimming together, it’s time for “Scatters” activities. Scatters are a time when campers get to choose which camp activities they want to try with campers from different groups. Scatters activities vary every day, and each week we infuse the activities offered with the theme. Every-week activities include catch and release fishing, boating, free play in the woods, archery, campfire cooking, makerspace, singing camp songs, and farm and garden exploration. Our daily goal is to send campers home a little tired, a little dirty, and full of joy.
