Elective Courses

All campers choose elective courses to take each afternoon. Below, you will find a sampling of the courses that may be offered. Some of the courses will be completed in a single day, but all of those courses will be offered multiple times throughout the week. Other courses may require a multiple-day commitment. You will choose your elective schedule after your audition on the first day of camp.
