Every summer we schedule camp trips to dynamite Amusement Parks and other exciting places of camper interest. In the past we've taken campers to: Dorney Park & the Wild Water Kingdom, Hershey Park, the Wayne County Fair, Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame, Montage Alpine and Water Slides, Canoe trips on the Delaware, Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown Festival Park in Virginia, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Virginia Beach, Boston, Toronto, Kings Dominion, Niagara Falls, Canada's Wonderland Amusement Park, the Ontario Science Center and a whole lot more!
Each 4 week session features an all-camp trip at a major Amusement Park. There are no extra charges for these trips. We hire buses, pack up our campers and staff, and leave for the Amusement Park right after breakfast. Lunch and dinner are served in our reserved pavilion at the park. Campers entering the 6th grade and younger are supervised by 2 counselors assigned to the cabin group the entire day. Senior campers buddy-up and are supervised by our senior counselors and senior staff members who are located throughout the park. We also have mandatory check-in times at our pavilion. At the end of the day, the buses are loaded, and we depart for camp... hopefully in time to make curfew!
In addition to our All-Camp Trips (which are included in the tuition) every summer we schedule a 3-Day Trip to a site of educational as well as entertaining interest for our campers. This trip is optional and limited to 50 campers who are 11 years old and older.
