At Arts and Crafts there is a different project to do
every day.
 You might be making friendship bracelets, tie
dye shirts, or souvenir t-shirts. Or you can just do your own
thing.  You might even take a little time to write a letter home!
Free Swim is offered at the waterfront each afternoon and is
directed by certified lifeguards.  You can enjoy swimming or just
relax on the dock.  There are some fun toys to play with like the
rolling log!  During this time you can take out your own kayak, or
take out a paddle boat with a friend. Or, you can try your hand at
frogging!
Archery is always taught by a certified instructor, and
there are certain range commands that you’ll need to
follow in order to keep it safe.  Some campers like to
do archery every day, and others just try it once or twice.
 
Other activities that you might have a choice of, could be
volleyball,mini-farm, parachute games, tennis, basketball,  stilts
and
acting games.  During our three week sessions, each cabin
produces and acts in their own
movie which we show on movie night.

Each evening the entire camp gathers for our Night Program. Mango
Madness, karaoke, a scavenger hunt, campfire, or something created
by  a cabin group!   Each session there are no two nights the same!

Thank you for taking such
great care of Amanda.
She had a wonderful
three weeks.
SJ is such a special place!

A word about our no-cell-phone/no electronics policy. Our campers are with us for a short amount of time and
we hope they get the most from their experience. That is why we support activities - at camp and beyond -
that do not require screen time. For more info:
