Crafts: Campers get to learn new crafts every day. Anything from Q-tip snowflakes to melty beads is in the picture.
Rotating Morning Activities: Campers get a different morning activity every day! Morning activities may include; snow science experiments, relay races, canoe rides and more!
Trail Talks: This is the time in the day that campers get to sit down with a snack, their friends and their counselor. During this time, campers will have an opportunity to explore their spirituality through conversations connecting faith, community, and nature. Zephyr Point uses the Christian tradition and the example of Jesus as a lens to help campers see the value, dignity, and humanity in everyone.
