A Typical Day at Camp

Our campers and staff would probably say “there is no ‘typical‘ day at New Moon – as every day offers something different. The schedule below gives a flow to most days. We mix things up a little on Wednesday with a short sleep-in, and “Super Sunday” is packed with special programming after an extended sleep in.

Choice of various offerings is available every 3rd period, and Clinics during 5th period allow campers to focus more on areas of camp they love.
