Campers focus on their specialty topic in the morning then hang out, swim, and enjoy activities and programming in the afternoon. Previous specialties include Photography, Restaurant Week, Adventure Trips, and Stage Combat.

Campers will have a blast sharpening their water and wilderness skills. They will learn map skills, fire safety, sewing, and environmental sustainability, as well as how to set up and take down a camp site.  Fishing, canoeing, scuba diving, and outdoor cooking round out the week. Each week will include off-site field trips to practice these skills, culminating in an overnight camping trip to Fountainbleau State Park during Week 8.
