Special Days are the highlight of each week at Camp!
Campers and Staff alike participate in the fun with costumes, face paint, special games, sportsmanship and team spirit!
Special Days often bring new and thrilling amusements to camp, like water slides, bounce castles, staff dunk tanks, and more. Sometimes our campers get to watch awesome demonstrations, past shows include: Rodeo-style Barrel Racing, Medieval Times-style Jousting, Horseback Dressage Demonstrations, and the always entertaining Staff Horse Shows. Special days also mean off-site trips for our Teens.

Although we are always thinking up new and exciting themes, a few favorites have become tradition, and return every year: The always silly ‘Crazy Hair/Hat Day,’ the highly anticipated ‘Water Fun Day,’ and our long-standing tradition, ‘Blue and Gold Day!’
Campers can never be sure what to expect on a Special Day, because everything changes for the theme. At the pool, they may find themselves in a relay race carrying a greased watermelon, or playing water volleyball. In the riding ring, they play all kinds of horse-back games, like ‘Red-Light, Green-Light,’ and ‘Simon Says.’ When special days include friendly competition and team spirit, our campers are always awarded extra points for good sportsmanship and teamwork.
Our CITs (Campers in Leadership Training) have the opportunity to take all kinds of fun trips once a week on Special Days. Some of our favorite trips from past years include: Six Flags: Great Adventure, HersheyPark, Mountain Creek Water Park, Medieval Times, and our annual White Water Rafting/Camping Overnight Trip. We offer new trip opportunities every year.
