What's New In The Program?

Here is what’s new for Summer 2017 at SLC! 

Schedules:  We are revamping our scheduling process.  Times of activities are changing, and we are introducing a new “Choice Program” into every camper’s schedule. Shower time and letter writing will be scheduled into the weekly program; we will offer more “all-camp” activities, where older and younger campers can interact.  We also plan on scheduling more clinic oriented sports sessions.  You will have the opportunity to learn or refine your skills in Soccer, Basketball, Softball, Kickball, and other sports in camp!

Choice Program: We will be introducing more (age appropriate) opportunities for “choice activity” into our weekly program. Younger campers will have some individual choice with more daily options as they get older. Activities will be a balance between workshops focused on skill building along with fun, creative programs led by the counselors and specialists.
Trips: We are excited to introduce a “Choice Trip” for the older campers in addition to the amusement park trips.  This will take the place of Specialty trips.
Camper panels: We are creating camper panels (on Mainside and Teenside) to meet once a week during Hafsakah (rest hour). You will have the opportunity to give us regular, immediate feedback on what you ‘re looking for in YOUR camp program.

Food: We will be improving our meals by focusing on menu planning, dietary needs and other elements. We will be offering substitutes that aren’t limited to just peanut butter and jelly!
