Camp life is busy in the greatest of ways. Each day is filled with new adventures and opportunities to enjoy the summer!
Resident and Day Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as Camp Immokalee, where campers become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social, and educational activities.
One of the coolest things about Camp Immokalee is that you get to choose your five main activities each week. At the beginning of each week, you pick out five activities that you will take over the next five days. These activities provide opportunities for campers to try new things in a safe learning environment or continue to do something they love! Activity schedules are designed to give each camper a host of new experiences as well as a chance to gain proficiency in new skills. No day is typical at Immokalee, but here is a sample of what a day of fun might include:
Flagpole and Hoppers at 7:45 AM
Breakfast at 8:00 AM
Two morning activities such as swimming, archery, zip line and challenge course etc before lunch. Morning activities are typically in co-ed age group rotations.
11:45 camp store
1:00 rest hour
2:15 two afternoon activity rotations and an afternoon snack. Afternoon activities are “camper choice” and “clubs.” These activities campers individually select, based on their interests that day. Fishing, outdoor cooking and more are some of the fun options campers can select from.
5:15 flagpole and hoppers
