HomeOur ProgramMain CampFiver (Ages 6-9)

campmnd212 50The Fiver program is perfect for first time boys, ages 6-9, who are looking for a shorter overnight camp experience.

Fiver is very similar to our Lite program, however unlike during Lite, our Fiver campers are just 1 bunk of boys (Bunk 5)! While Fiver is happening, all the other campers are in our Navigators program and are at camp for 14 days. Fivers get a "snapshot" of how a real 14-day session runs, and see the larger camp experience, but have the benefit of attending activities with their bunkmates and a consistent staff team that is specially trained to support our youngest campers through a great week at camp. In addition, the Fiver program has a dedicated Administrator (supervisory staff member) who is paired with the cabin to ensure campers are adjusting well to camp and have everything they need. Since Fiver takes place during Navigators, the Fiver bunk also benefits from being paired up with an older camper "buddy" who has been to camp before and can help them learn the ropes (still alongside their 1:1 staff, of course!). 

As with our traditional overnight programs, we integrate the Starfish Tools (coping skills) and Keys (social skills) into everything we do!  With a maximum group size of 5, campers learn to engage in positive interactions with their peers and build their confidence in social situations.  With consistent staff support, campers participate in traditional camp activities, such as arts-n-crafts, swimming, boating, nature exploration, sports, drama, music, athletics, and more. Our camp days are structured, with plenty of forecasting and an emphasis on safe fun. The Fiver program is a great way to introduce young campers to the overnight experience!
