We’ve Arrived!

Observation is one of my favorite pastimes!  Camp Howard is rich with opportunities for observation!  The arrival of campers to Camp Howard is filled with emotion. The kids get off the bus, some with giant smiles, others with a bit of trepidation!  The fear does not last long however, as the first thing that happens is the staff introduce themselves to the campers and tell them about what their job is at camp.  Next, the campers are grouped by gender and age and then called by name to their cabin group.  Soon they are in a small group learning about the individuals they will be spending their week with at the camp.  Soon, it is all smiles!#sistersblog #cyocamphoward

This is the summer to be a 5 to 10 year old at Camp Howard!  We are focusing on their summer activities and plan to kick it up a notch for this age group at camp this year. Why this age group?  Last year we focused on 11 – 17 year olds adding zip line, big swing and lazer tag!

What is a corcl?  It is a round, plastic floating vessel designed with our younger campers in mind.  The corcl is made to be paddled around in the pond.  Camp Howard supplies life jackets for all of the campers and make sure they are in them before they get into the device.  This activity is sure to be a confidence builder in the kids!

The corcls come in a variety of colors and look like they will be a lot of fun.  If you haven’t done it yet, sign up for a week of fun at Camp Howard!  Camp Howard is accredited by the American Camping Association.  Open House: Sunday June 25th from 2:00 – 5:00.
