Get ready for the time of your life!
A day at Sandy Hill is definitely action-packed, with fun, friends, and new experiences at every turn. The morning and afternoon are divided into five activity periods. While the order of activities varies by age group and session length, the content of a day is the same for all campers:
three instructional classes
one elective and
one period of free time
But that's not all! After dinner comes the exciting evening program, which varies from night to night and week to week. And scroll down to learn more about special weekend activities for two-week campers as well.
Waterskiing, horseback riding, sailing, magic, climbing, basketball, archery and more. Doesn't exactly sound like a typical day at school! Click here for detailed descriptions of instructional activity options. Instructional classes make up three of the five daily activity periods.
Electives - Something New Each Day!
Each camper attends a different elective each day, enabling everyone to experience the wide range of activities Sandy Hill has to offer. Campers should sign up for their electives online by June 1st to receive priority elective registration. Each camper will have four electives per week. Elective offerings generally include kayak trips, paddle boarding, speedboat tours, tubing, horseback trail rides, the climbing tower, escape room, and the 300-foot zipline. Click here to see a description of the electives you can choose.
Sandy Hill's free time activities are centrally located, with plenty of options. Swim, dive, or sunbathe at the pool. Grab a snack or shop for a souvenir at the camp store. How about basketball, sand volleyball, or some tetherball or gaga? And when you're ready to head indoors, the air-conditioned game room and craft center beckon. Counselors spend free time with their campers, getting to know them and making sure everyone is having fun.
What would camp be without campfires, wacky competitions, talent shows, dances and skits? Sandy Hill's evening program offers all that and much more. A snack is served midway through the evenings festivities, which by the way, are kept top secret until the time arrives...so you'll just have to experience them for yourself!
