The activity periods are 45 minutes each and there is a 15-minute break between activities. The 15 minutes will be used to prepare for your next activity. All counselors are required to be at their activity 5 minutes before the start. The evening activity is different every night, and will vary in its length. You will be required to help run the activity and in some cases to help plan it. A few examples of evening activities are: Skits, Team Competition and Cabin Competition, and all camp games. Taps is played according to when the evening activity ends. It is the signal for the camp to quiet down for the night. Depending on your cabins age group, bedtime varies. Sundays are different. They are considered Cabin days. Instead of following the regular schedule, you have a sleep-in in the morning and then enjoy activities as a cabin in the afternoon.
