Our Bridge program is available to campers entering 6th grade in the Fall of 2021. Our Bridge program was created in 2017 after observing the need to provide campers with a transition from our Traditional program to our Middle School program. We worked to take the best from both programs to create a smooth transition for campers, giving them the lessons they loved from traditional camp while introducing them to service in our community, an additional overnight and field trips.
Monday through Thursday, Bridge campers will choose from a variety of morning lessons offered by counselors such as sports, crafts, science, team building, nature camp craft and more. In addition, one morning per week, they will typically participate in a service opportunity in our community. On Fridays campers will either participate in themed programming and activities or have an offsite experience. Bike trips are also a part of our Bridge program. Campers will typically bike once a week throughout the summer.Although each day brings new adventures, there is a familiar pattern:
|8:40 a.m.||Raise flag, songs and announcements|
|9:15 a.m.||Campers will have the opportunity to sign up for enriching activities ranging from outdoor cooking, sports, arts & crafts, team building and more.|
|12 p.m.||Bag lunch (from home) and group reading time|
|12:50 p.m.||Gather at the tennis court for afternoon announcements and songs|
|1:00 p.m.||Three afternoon activity choices|
|3:00 p.m.||Snack (provided)
Large group games/Small Group activities
|3:45 p.m.||Closing Afternoon Flag|
|4:0op.m. – 4:30 p.m.||Pick-up time*|
Extended hours are available in the morning, starting at 7:30 a.m. and in the evening, ending at 5:30 p.m.**
Available sessions and fees are listed on the Bridge Fees page.
Overnights & Offsite Experiences:
An important component of the Bridge program is the overnights and offsite experiences. We will plan to evaluate our ability to do offsite programming once we receive guidance for summer 2021 from the Minnesota Health Department.
