Each program has a unique theme which helps guide the activities. Within a typical schedule Mountain Top Explorium has some unique program elements which each camper can look forward to within their experience.
Each session has a unique theme which is used to guide the majority of the activities. Each day will still utilize a variety of staple day camp activities.
Our days are action packed but we understand that our campers also need some quiet time. We provide a variety of activities such as reading, drawing, or other activities which can be enjoyed solo or within small groups.
Our rambles are a cornerstone of a Mountain Top Explorium day camp experience. These are times that we are hiking, playing, and learning about the theme of each week while day hiking and “on trail.”
We will spend the majority of our days within small groups called our “crews.” There are also times when we will bring together multiple crews if not the whole day camp to play a large group game based on the theme of the week.
Each program starts and ends with a “campfire.” This isn’t an actual campfire and refers to a time when we circle up and talk about the plan for the day or reflect on the day’s activities.
This is our term for “recess” or “free time.” There will be occasional times throughout the day Discovery Time, which will be a time to play in the woods with some minor rules. Click here to learn more about the purpose and benefits of Discovery Time.
