Most overnight camps from the Poconos to Maine are what we call “traditional overnight camps”. They offer an array of activities, old fashion camp traditions, and daily scheduled activities for 7 weeks. Whether it’s a coed or single sex camp, a traditional bunk consists of 10-12 kids and the bonds of friendships are unbreakable. Most camps today understand the need kids have to practice their “activity” of choice. For example, they will offer extra private tennis lessons, extra time on the baseball diamond, or more time spent in the gym getting that back tuck perfect. Some camps will have professional coaching on staff or send the kids off camp to meet with speciality coaches.
Speciality camps are perfect for the older child in high school who wants to make their high school team. They are also great for that child who really wants to focus on sharpening their skills in his or her sport. Most specialty camps are 2 weeks long and are located on a college campus or off-site location. Typically there are no bunks, the children sleep in a door room with a roommate or two.
Both options are a fantastic way to spend a summer. Still unsure? Give us a call, we can tell you about the many different camp options available and help answer any of your questions.
