Camp life is busy in the greatest of ways. Each day is filled with new adventures and opportunities to enjoy the summer!
Resident camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as Camp Spaulding, where campers ages 7-15 become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social, and educational activities.
One of the best ways to build community is to share a meal with your friends. Cabin groups will sit down for a meal three times a day and enjoy the company of their cabin. The cabin group will function as your child’s home base and main source of support.
Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership-all amidst the fun of camp fires, canoeing, archery, arts & crafts, and meaningful relationships.
While there is no such thing as a typical day at camp, we do follow a schedule to give campers an opportunity to experience as much of camp as possible.
