Our Children’s Camp Program
Unicamp programming is thoughtfully designed to meet the needs and interests of each age group. Each session is filled with a wide variety of creative and enriching activities, community building experiences and time to appreciate the beauty and magic of Unicamp. Below is a sampling of our daily schedule.
Morning Program: An ease-in to the day and a chance for all campers to engage in a program together. Each morning the entire camp gathers together for a collaborative program organized around a specific theme. Our morning programs are led by our enthusiastic program staff.
Workshops & One-Shots: Campers choose from theme related activities to co-create their days based on their interests. There are 2-3 different program slots per day and 3 different choices in each slot. Some examples of activities include: arts and crafts, archery, caving, swimming, sports, music, drama, wilderness survival skills, group games, story circles, campfires and more.
Free Time: With so many scheduled activities, campers welcome some unstructured time. Each afternoon, for an hour and a half, campers can choose to swim, play games on the field, do a project in the program centre, or simply spend time socializing with friends.
Family Council: This is where the work of building community takes place. Campers and staff members gather together in their cabins to engage in relevant discussion—to work out conflicts, to make decisions about the week’s activities, and to share the joys and successes of their day.
Evening Program: Each evening brings a new camp-wide event. Typical evening activities include Wish Night, Carnival, Counselor Hunt, campfires, Capture the Flag, scavenger hunts, Olympics, movie nights and game shows. Wednesday nights are reserved for our camp-wide dance.
Hug Patrol: Each evening the Mini-common comes alive with activity as the Programming staff go and visit each cabin. Campers let the program staff know if they would like a smile, high five, handshake, hug, that evening. As with all aspects of our program, practicing our principles is interwoven into the shared camp experience, and this includes ensuring each person has a voice.
Excursion: Wednesday afternoon is our all-camp excursion. We venture out to a beautiful location where we hike, swim, picnic and play games. Campers return to camp both tired and exhilarated, ready for ice cream upon their return.
