Daily Activities

Camp Life | General Information | Tripping & Events | A Typical Day

We offer a wide range of choices encouraging a balance between the active and the creative.

Each Fernwood camper must reach a proficiency in swimming and canoeing, and participate in fieldsports. Apart from the above requirements, each camper designs her own schedule prior to arriving at camp, with the help of her parents and the guidance of camp staff.

Groups within an activity are based on interest and/or skill level, not age or bunk family, allowing campers to learn at their own level of proficiency, not necessarily that of their peers. Our oldest campers (juniors and seniors) may “major,” taking extra time to explore a camp activity in greater depth.
