What to expect:
Campers will be able to spend time with their virtual cabin-mates, build friendships and stay safe on our secure online platform.
Each day will begin with a camp routine which includes a greeting from staff, riddle of the day, or a quote of the day, and much more.
Our program staff will lead campers in fun activities throughout the week in various program areas, all based on the theme of the week. Details will be shared with registered campers one week prior to the session beginning and include information on any craft supplies you need to gather (usually household items you already have on hand), and anything else you will need to know in advance.
Every Wednesday evening we will host a campfire. This is a great opportunity to have your whole family or household join in and learn more about Camp Easter Seal. Friends and family are welcome to this session.
We will also provide registered campers with a variety of at-home, independent activities to do throughout the week.
Every Thursday campers will have a chance to provide their input into a talent show, show & tell or similar session.
We can’t tell you all our secrets yet … but it will be great!
