We receive many calls from anxious parents of first time campers wanting to know what exactly a day at Redwood Adventure Camp looks like. The following is an example of our daily schedule and some descriptions of the typical activities your campers may participate in.
Campers decide as a group which activities they will be participating in. “Activity Periods” include all of the following:
|Horseback Riding||River Hiking||Ropes/Challenge Course|
|Camp Improvement||Archery||Overnight Backpacking|
8:00am RISE AND SHINE!!!
8:20am FLAG CEREMONY: One group hosts the morning festivities of raising the American Flag, singing morning songs and taking the weather stats from our in-house equipment. Campers will also receive announcements about the days schedule of activities. Ceremony ends with the campers finding a creative way of asking the cooks for breakfast (which is ALWAYS answered with a “yes”).
8:30am BREAKFAST: All meals begin by groups saying or singing traditional songs of grace. Campers enjoy a hot, nutritious meal prepared by our skilled kitchen staff. Breakfast and Dinner both end with groups finding imaginative and fun ways to thank the cooks for their hard work on a meal well done. This might be a skit, song, or other positive ways to show appreciation.
9:00am MORNING PRAYER: Groups of campers “host” the prayer session. The campers determine a theme for the session and find Bible readings or inspirational literature and songs that accompany the theme. Examples of themes may be: Sharing your gifts, helping others or how we treat other. The session always includes a group discussion and end in prayer.
