Implementing Special Events and Programs at Camp

While a summer at camp is, in and of itself, a special event, sometimes it’s important to shake up the daily routine to revitalize both campers and staff, especially a few weeks into the summer. Staff who teach a par-ticular activity exclusively may become tired of the same routine; going over the parts of a boat or perfecting a camper’s forehand day in and day out can get tedious even for the most avid activity enthusiasts. Similarly, campers need a break from structured swim lessons and shooting at archery targets.
