Game Shows/Variety Shows
On these evenings, campers and counselors channel their inner Late-Night Television Host by putting on some sort of performance devised by our Program Directors. This can include trivia shows with broad camper participation or parody performances like the EA known as “TV” where groups of staff and campers cooperate to put on a 2-3 minute skit that mocks a television show through the lens of camp. The product of these EA’s is laughter, with constant humor that often results in inside jokes among campers that last for years.
Finally, some of the most conducive EA’s to camper’s confidence are our self-expression activities. Once every four weeks, we hold an open mic night, where campers or staff can perform anything they’d like in front of camp, from singing and dancing to reading prose to showing off a unique talent. The camp community is incredibly supportive of anyone’s choice to perform during these types of EA’s. Last but certainly not least are our weekly dances, known across generations of campers as some of the most lively and exciting moments of the summers. Counselors “DJ” a playlist that mixes camp-classics with a sampling of modern hits and all of camp dances in any way they want, singing along and jumping in an entirely unchoreographed release, complete with neon lights, disco balls, and a smoke machine.
