It’s not basic; it’s extraordinary. Our traditional camp experience, features everything you would expect, including a wide variety of age appropriate fun and exciting activities, including arts and crafts, archery, boating,a teamwork/challenge course, zip line, climbing wall, nature hikes, swimming and more. Campers are empowered every day, giving them the chance to choose the activities they love the most.
Our youngest campers, ages 3 and 4, light up camp with their excitement and imagination. These young girls and boys spend time together enjoying age-appropriate activities, including swimming, every day!
Boys at Amity Acres have their own unit that they named themselves – Shark Bait. Built for siblings, boys participate in the same activities as girls in basic camp, but they do it as part of their own unit.
Attend a regular day of camp on Monday and return for an extended camp overnight Tuesday through Thursday. The program concludes at the end of camp on Friday.
Campers spend a half day participating in traditional camp activities and a half day exploring their technological creativity.
Campers spend part of the day at off-site stables, minutes from camp, and the remainder of the day participating in traditional camp activities.
During a two-week program, girls develop leadership abilities, focus on outdoor skills and learn how to mentor younger campers. During the one-week specialization program, girls choose one area of camp to focus their interest.
