A day at Glen Arden begins when the bell sounds and wakes up the rest of the camp. From there, campers can take an early morning jump into the lake, which we call “pothole,” or head to the barn to groom and feed the horses as part of our Barn Rats program. As a group, we participate in the time-honored tradition of raising the flag, which is followed by breakfast and cabin clean-up before heading off to the first of three morning activity periods.
A camper chooses the activities she wants to take and signs up for a regular schedule of four classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and four different classes on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Lunch is followed by rest hour. After rest hour, a camper enjoys her fourth activity period, followed by a free period where she may choose to return to an activity to work on her “progressions.” After progressions, the lake is open for free swim where the “blob” and rope swing are always in high gear!
Our evening activities involve the whole camp and consist of varied programs like Capture the Flag, Panic, Camper Talent Show, Council Fire, songs and s’mores and much more from the creative minds of our staff.
“All three of our daughters are obsessed with Camp Glen Arden! They have so much fun, make lasting friendships and memories, and build their skills in activities they never could at home. We love that they spend three solid weeks with no technology - even our high school daughter. They are already counting down the days until this summer!”
