At Camp Laurel, campers participate in group activities and team sports and also develop individual talents.
The summer at Camp Laurel is divided into two rotations. Campers focus on five activities each day on an alternating "A" and "B" basis. Younger campers are automatically scheduled for swim instruction, tennis lessons, two team sports, as well as a rotation of waterskiing, crafts and an exciting Junior Fitness Program. As a camper gets older, he or she will have more electives in his or her schedule.
Campers have the option of participating in Intercamps and Tournaments against other summer camps in activities like tennis, soccer, baseball, lacrosse, volleyball, softball, basketball, sailing and swimming. There are no "try-outs" - campers don't have to "make the cut" to be on the team. Even though we "play to win", sportsmanship, being part of a team and having fun are the most integral components to these games.
Every fifth day, we have a Special Day, or "S" Day at Camp Laurel. On an "S" Day, campers wake up late and have a buffet breakfast. There is a special program -- bumper tubing on the lake, Carnival Day, athletic leagues in soccer, flag football and capture the flag, Halloween in July, Gold Rush -- which takes the place of your campers regular activities. Campers also go on out-of-camp trips to the beach, amusement and water parks or other scenic destinations along the Maine coast.
