Boys Summer Camp Daily Schedule

We exist for boys as they are so they imagine the men they can become.

Wondering what a typical day at boys camp is like? Check out the daily schedule below to learn more: 

Early Bird Activity

If you’re a volunteer early riser, you can get up with the sun and enjoy a swim in the pool, a hike around camp, or a canoe trip up the mist-covered Leaf River. During an Early Bird Activity, early risers and high-energy campers enjoy the chance to experience an activity in the unique time of early dawn.

Wake Up

Rise and shine! At 7:00am, it’s time to wake up, clean up, get dressed and head out for Community Gathering!

Community Gathering

We start every morning at camp as a community. We gather near the dining hall to greet the day and each other with songs, a quote for the day, and cheery good mornings!


Yum! Eat as much of the hot meal as you possibly can. There’s also plenty of cereal and fruit! Like all camp meals, breakfast is served family-style.

Morning Teams

Following camp chores, it’s time to head to your team groups, to spend the morning doing cool team building and empowerment games and exercises with a varied group of fellow campers with whom you will spend special activity time each day.  Occasionally, we’ll mix it up in the morning with camp-wide activities or bonus camptivity options.


After cleaning up from your morning activities, it’s time to head back to the Dining Hall for lunch. Lunch is again served family-style and is all-you-can-eat. In addition to the main dish, salad and fruits are available.


Spend an hour relaxing with your cabin-mates back at the cabin. This is also a great time to write to your friends and family who are not at camp. During this time, you will also receive mail four times per session.

First Camptivity

Following Siesta, you head out the door to your First Camptivity. During the afternoon, water activities are a great way to stay cool! The pool might be calling to you, or maybe some dam jumping or mud volleyball. Or, have a blast on a mountain bike or making candles…it’s up to you! Maybe you’ll choose rock climbing…whatever you choose will be challenging and fun!

Snack Time at La Tienda

A midday snack is always great to keep your energy going! Grab a snack or drink between First and Second Camptivity, and chill out with your friends for a little while!

Second Camptivity

After La Tienda time, you can again choose a fun activity to do on your own or with friends. Maybe a spirited game of Ga-Ga is calling your name for this camptivity period!


Another delicious family-style meal at the dining hall, complete with salad, followed by the loudest singing in the Midwest!

Evening Activity

During the evening, the whole camp community gathers for an interesting activity highlighting our diverse community or for just plain old fun like an “un-talent” show, a game of capture the flag, or a bunch of other cool games! Throughout the session, we also have campfires where the camp community enjoys the great energy (and occasional Smores!) that campfires bring.

Cabin Time

Before bed, campers reflect on the day they had at camp. Then, the counselors might tell a story, discuss a meaningful topic, or cabin mates might just chill out and just talk about the great day we had at camp! Cabin time is often the most memorable time at camp.

Lights Out

After so much fun and excitement in the fresh air, a little shut-eye always feels good at camp.
