Horseback riding along mountain trails. Swimming and relaxing by the pool. Camping getaways. Tennis and volleyball matches. Arts and crafts. Drama and musicals. Even cooking! There is so much to see and do at Skyland Camp for Girls, you’re going to have the best summer of your life. Along the way, you’re going to meet some of the best girls you’ve ever met and build friendships that will last a lifetime. Don’t take our word for it. Just ask your counselor. There’s a good chance she was a Skyland camper herself!
What Does A Day At Skyland Camp Look Like?
Most days at Skyland follow a fun daily schedule. You’ll participate in six different activities throughout the day. The activities include a combination of three Core Activities, which all campers participate in, and three Elective Activities, which campers choose to choose depending on their interests. You can re-elect elective activities each week.
Free time, which is before and after meals, allows you to take advantage of unstructured time so you can explore, play, and be independent. To end each day, the entire camp gathers for the evening Clubhouse, with activities ranging from scavenger hunts to carnivals to dance parties.
Special Event Days!
The schedule may look a little different on special activity days, like days when we go on campouts or hikes, have all-camp activities or an afternoon of free choice, and whitewater rafting and tubing trip days.
Skyland has always been all about “making new things … while keeping the old”!
This year, as we continue to celebrate new things at our wonderful “old” camp, we are embracing the the theme everything old really can be new again by adding some neat ideas for projects you can do at home with friends using some things you may already have. Check back each month for new projects or email us pictures and instructions for something you have found that you would like to share with other campers!
The projects pictures are from a new friend of Skyland Camp – artist, librarian and super clever and thrifty girl-buddy, Marie Andree.
