A TYPICAL DAY

Nothing about Camp Howe is TYPICAL!  We have a schedule to offer structure to our program, but activities change every day to keep the interest of our campers peaked. Each day is jampacked of fun activities. 

 
Our Junior and Day campers experience almost all the activities we offer – at a level and pace that works for children their age. Each day, they will enjoy time at the waterfront, practicing aquatic skills and free swimming. Also built into the schedule are opportunities to explore interests independent of their cabin and group.
 
Our Teen program is self-guided, and each teen gets to decide what to do in each activity block. During each block for teens, we offer low, medium, and high-energy choices.
 
A rest period is included for all campers campers participate in back-to-back swim practice and free swim periods.

Early Morning Interest Groups
Campers who choose to get up early can meet at the flagpole and enjoy swimming, walking, running, music, and stretching/yoga-type activities.
 
 Wake Up time
We start the day as a community at Morning Flag at 8 am. Flag is a communal gathering to start the day. Announcements are made, and campers learn about other states or countries – a different one for each flag.

Breakfast.
The entire camp comes together for meals unless they pre-plan a sleep-in breakfast, pack-out lunch, or a meal cooked over the fire. 

Day campers arrive after breakfast.

Mornings
 
Following CIA’s (Camp Improvement Acts), campers will enjoy two activity blocks. Juniors experience activities as a cabin group or joining another cabin (some activities are more fun with more people). These can include boating, ropes course, or archery… really any of the activities listed on our activity page or special activities introduced to camp by our talented staff.

Teens gather as a group and divide into groups based on their interests.


Lunch is enjoyed outdoors picnic style if weather permits.

Camp Store
The camp store is open every day after lunch. Candy is available a couple of times a day. Other types of souvenirs are available - towels, water bottles, croc jibbits - to name a few. 

Afternoons
Each group gets to enjoy the waterfront, rest during siesta, and engage in our special interest groups. These activities include one-day interest groups (each camper gets to choose a different one every day) and our 5-day interest group (each camper gets to dive deep into one activity each day for the week).

Siesta is a rest period. This is time to relax with cabin mates back at the cabin. This is also a great time to write to friends and family outside of camp. During this time, you will also receive mail four times per session.

Day campers get picked up before dinner.

Dinner is enjoyed as a cabin group again. 

Evening Flag 
Another flag and another session learning about another state or country. This can include random facts, national anthems, or dances from the region. 


Evening Programs
The first night of camp is spent with the cabin or unit, getting to know one another. Every other evening is filled with fun activities for the entire camp community. Events include talent shows, campfires, scavenger hunts, mysteries, dance and parties, and whatever fun adventures the staff can create. Many activities are based around the theme of the day. 
 

After Goodnight Cirle

Juniors

Our younger campers will head to their cabins for the evening. They will get ready for bed and spend quiet time in their cabins. When everyone is ready, each cabin will have a cabin chat. Cabin chat is a time to reflect, learn about others and yourself, and share your experiences with new and old friends. Cabin time is often the most memorable time at camp.

Teens

Once the younger campers have gone to bed, the teens enjoy a second evening program tailored to their interests and developmental needs. From here, teens head to their cabins and begin their own evening routine, which also includes cabin chat. 

Getting much-needed sleep so they can have the energy for another fun-filled day.
