Winter

Here is the schedule for the week of WINTER Break Camp:

MONDAY: “X-treme Fun”

We’ll kick off our first day of camp with activities you can only do in the snow. We will venture out on a trip into the forest along our scenic trails. Our older campers will go on a Nordic ski adventure. Our younger campers will go on a snowshoe adventure.

TUESDAY: “Walking in a Winter Woodland”

Today offers three amazing winter activities. Campers will join our instructors and learn about the ecological wonders found near our campus in the winter. Then follow the tracks of native animals through the woods and learn a few things about their habitats. Lastly, campers will learn how to survive in the woods amidst harsh conditions during our Winter Survival activity.

WEDNESDAY: “Wilderness Adventure”

Get the best of both worlds by doing some indoor rock climbing at The Crux and some outdoor snow tubing at our onsite hill. If snow conditions prevent snow tubing, campers will have a blast with our World Famous Egg Drop activity, and additional alternative activities

THURSDAY:  “Adirondack Excursion”

What better way to explore the Adirondack Park than to hike in it all day long! Campers will leave Pok-O in the morning and hike a local Adirondack Mountain, playing fun games along the way, and eating a famous “summit sandwich”! Other activities today will include; outdoor play, if time allows.

FRIDAY: “Pokolympics”

Finish off the week with a day filled with fun and excitement! Join one of the four competing nations: MacCreadia, The United Pok-O States, Ol’ Moonshire or The Kingdom of Swan! Compete with your team in a variety of fun activities and challenges!

Spring

Enjoy an active day of rock climbing at our indoor rock climbing gym, The Crux! Campers of all experience levels will have a blast climbing and bouldering together. Complete the day with a quick hike up a small local mountain with an amazing view!
