Activity Planning

actfair02On Monday afternoon, campers signed up for instructional activities.  “So many choices, I don’t know what to pick!”, exclaimed first-year Pioneer Jack.  And he wasn’t really complaining.  “One of the secrets of Pok-O-MacCready’s success,” said long-time camp administrator Scott McIntyre, “is the abundance of choices the children have!”

To learn about the many class offerings, campers spent a part of the day at an Activity Fair.  There, they traveled to stations to learn about the classes.  Instructors (both counselors and specialist teachers) outlined the schedule, goals, what skills will be taught and what fun games will be played.

tests06Some classes require extra scrutiny prior to enrolling; every camper is given a swim test.  “We want to find the proper level for each camper,” said waterfront director Kelly Zimmerman, adding, “most everyone takes swimming lessons at first, at least until  they get to a certain level.”  Also, the campers who have signed up for horse back riding were also tested, so that they may be placed in the appropriate skill class.

Camp directors will spend the next 24 hours finalizing the schedule and classes are set to begin Wednesday morning.
