Day Camp Explorer Overnight Program (11-12 Year Olds)
Same goals as in Camper Program with addition of three Explorer Overnights at Camp!
Children 11-12 may enroll in either the Camper or Explorer Overnight program. In NC's mixed aged learning, all children, 5-12, choose activities during the day, with Explorers having overnights.
Placing value on children's developmental stages at NC, we have seen a unique need for children, eleven and twelve, to have three overnights during a two week session (four counting the second week's Family Overnight and Concert-in-the-Woods). They are eager stay after the camp day is over, relax, be involved in group projects and activities, as well as solo acclimatization (environmental sensory awareness) activities, and the planning and cooking of meals.
See the *PDF Calendar for clarity of each two week Camper/Explorer Session.
* In a two week session Explorers will sleepover Tuesday and Wednesday of the first week, and Tuesday of the second week. TAs will be the Explorer's mentors, joined by Explorer Counselors.
