Mornings at Camp Amity Acres begin with an opening ceremony and flag-raising, followed by a rundown of the day’s activities. From there, campers go to their unit (their home base) where they prepare for a day of fun and excitement. Every day features swimming, plus a variety of activities that may include archery, boating, nature exploration, arts and crafts, climbing wall, zip line and other team-building activities.
Once a week, campers are welcome to stay late for a night around the campfire with more fun camp activities and dinner (weather permitting).
Bullseye! With the help of a certified instructor, campers will get the opportunity to learn how to safely use a bow and improve their shooting technique.
Arts and Crafts
A variety of artistic opportunities are available to Amity Acres campers. Wacky Beads are the highlight of every camp week, but young artists also have the chance to paint, draw and complete classic camp crafts.
Girl Scout Badges
Exclusive to Basic Camp: Girls in kindergarten through eighth grade can earn Girl Scout badges to place on their uniforms and wear all year round. These badges are exclusive to Girl Scouts and are available to earn at Girl Scout Camp.
Under the supervision of trained specialists, campers learn how to boat and canoe safely as they paddle or row across the lake.
Camp Color Clash
During one special week of camp, campers are divided into teams and compete in a variety of exciting challenges. Bragging rights go to the team with the most points at the end of the week.
