Hermann Sons Life Camp’s goal is to provide our campers with a fun, exciting range of daily activities.
Traditional/Specialized Program – One-half of the camper’s day will be spent participating in three activities they have chosen by completing the Activity Selection Form at least two weeks before Camp begins. This form is emailed to the parents upon enrollment.
Campers will choose the other half of their schedule at Camp on a daily basis. Some of the camps’ traditionally scheduled activities will be offered within the elective program. Camp crafts, ceramics, leathercrafts will be available on a daily basis. Other activities that will be offered include free swim, Capture the Flag, dodgeball, Ultimate Frisbee, mosaics, tie dying, Magic: The Gathering, improv classes, line dancing, martial arts, scavenger hunts, color guard (flags), hiking, manis and pedis, Gaelic football, lanyards and friendship bracelets, Texas Hold ‘Em, kickball, rugby, archery, GaGa ball and so much more!
