The Fiver program is designed 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 Lite, our Fiver campers are just 1 bunk of boys (Bunk 5)!
In Fiver, sessions run concurrently with a two-week Navigator session; because of this, 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.
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!
“My son loved everything about camp. I think camp made him feel more mature and able to make good decisions. I loved the way you worked with the campers and found ways for solutions for all individuals. The children felt special. I knew my child was very safe.”
