Week two of Camp Smile will have campers and counselors thinking like survivors!  Throughout survivor week, campers will spend a lot of time being in the outdoors.  Relay races, scavenger hunts, and learning how to cook lunch over the campfire are a few of the activities our campers will enjoy this week!

Field Trips

Each week we love to have fun and exciting on-site activities, as well as some off-site field trips.  All activities and field trips are subject to change based upon weather and planning (our camp middle name is “flexible!”). For week two, we have the following field trips planned:

Mendon Ponds

Our camp will take a day trip to Mendon Ponds Park, where we will explore the trails, have a picnic lunch, and play outdoor games.

Camp Smile Overnight

Our first camp overnight will occur during week two on Thursday night.  Campers get the opportunity to sleep in tents, enjoy dinner as a camp, and participate in a special campfire event (e.g., story telling, music, or a talent show!). The next morning (Friday) campers wake up to enjoy a pancake breakfast and awards ceremony put on by our senior counselors. This is a great tradition at Camp Smile, and one of our campers’ favorites!
