Program

A typical day begins with all Campers meeting at their Color Groups.  At 9:05 am all groups will head to the Stage Area for Songs, Skits & Games.

All Campers will be called up by their counselor into small groups of children of the same age, with whom they will spend the entire session. Camp CaHiTo is a “group-centered” camp – meaning that our campers have the same counselor and peer group for the duration the camp session. Group-centered camping gives children the best opportunity to experience the powerful feeling of belonging, to make and keep new friends, and to connect with their counselors.

Campers participate in a range of activities, all of which are age-appropriate games, hikes, and crafts determined by the counselors to fit the theme of the week and what the group likes to do. Activities include Archery, Hiking, Low Ropes, Water Day Thursday, Art, and Crafts, Fort Building, Organized Games, Museums (for Campers 8 and older) and more.

We invite you and your child to come and check us out at one of our Upcoming Meet & Greets.

Treasure Hunters @ Camp CaHiTo
Jul 22 @ 9:00 am – Jul 26 @ 3:00 pm

For Campers 5-13 years old.

I start with an “E” and end with an “E” and I usually contain one letter? What am I? You’ll need to work together to solve riddles and search for things unseen in this week of treasure hunting. We have hidden clues to follow and riddles to solve. Will they lead you to Treasure? Come and see!

Every week at Camp CaHiTo campers also get to do all of the other awesome activities Camp has to offer; including hiking, archery, arts and crafts, sports, singing, forts, organized games, Water Day Thursday, Museums Tuesday (for Campers 8 and older) and much more.

Children must be at least 5-year’s old of age to attend Traditional Day Camps. Is your camper between the ages of 3-5? If so our Little Stars Program for campers under 5-year old is for them. If you have questions about your 5-year old’s appropriateness for either of our camps, please contact us.


Program

A typical day begins with all Campers meeting at their Color Groups.  At 9:05 am all groups will head to the Stage Area for Songs, Skits & Games.

All Campers will be called up by their counselor into small groups of children of the same age, with whom they will spend the entire session. Camp CaHiTo is a “group-centered” camp – meaning that our campers have the same counselor and peer group for the duration the camp session. Group-centered camping gives children the best opportunity to experience the powerful feeling of belonging, to make and keep new friends, and to connect with their counselors.

Campers participate in a range of activities, all of which are age-appropriate games, hikes, and crafts determined by the counselors to fit the theme of the week and what the group likes to do. Activities include Archery, Hiking, Low Ropes, Water Day Thursday, Art, and Crafts, Fort Building, Organized Games, Museums (for Campers 8 and older) and more.

We invite you and your child to come and check us out at one of our Upcoming Meet & Greets.
