JR. HIGH CAMPS (Gr. 7-9)
Note: Grade is based upon grade a camper is moving on from going into the summer of each camp year. For example, Suzie is going into Grade 4 in the Fall, yet for camp, she will be considered Grade 3.
Jr. High Camp is 150 of your closest Nakamun friends!
Campers get the freedom to sign-up for the activities they want to do each day. Additional specialty activity options are offered for the morning activities and then campers can choose the regular activities (zipline, climbing wall, paintball, tubing, etc.) in the afternoons. Regular camp activities are offered for those who choose not to participate in the specialty options. Each camper must sign-up for an activity for each activity slot.
Please Note: Jr. High Campers will be in separate accommodations then those who sign up for Horsemanship and Paintball Camps.
Jr. High at Nakamun
$400 + GST
The Specialty Options offered are designed to give campers a small amount of instruction and room for creativity during the week. Our instructors are our counselors and, though very talented, are not professionals. The goal of these options is learning a thing or two while having a whole lot of fun. The typical options we run include Art, Dance, Drama, Music, and a variety of Sports.
All options are run by our summer staff. In some cases we may not have any staff members to run certain options. For example, if none of our summer staff know how to instruct or lead a Dance group, we may not be able to offer that option. Though, in most summers, we've been graced with gifted staff who have been able to run all of the above options.
Art - Our art group will work on some basic skills as well as work together to carry out a planned mural for a wall somewhere at camp.
Dance - Dancers will work together on some moves and tie it all together in a dance number that they will perform later in the week.
Music - Musicians are welcome to bring their own instruments. They will work on song writing and form worship bands that will perform later in the week.
Sports - Usually soccer, beach volleyball, basketball, and sometimes canoeing, climbing wall, etc. Campers will go over some skills and mostly just play a lot of sports!
For those who are NOT interested in the specialty options we will be running our usual Nakamun activities.
*At each Jr. High camp we have a formal banquet one evening, with an emphasis on the importance of respect between genders. Remember to bring appropriate formal wear, if you wish to dress-up for the event.
