Campers Choose Their Own Schedule from Our Elective Summer Camp Activities
At Camp Pillsbury, the choices are all up to the campers. Our fully elective summer camp activities allows campers to select all their favorite activities and to also try new ones with in our established daily schedule. This gives campers the opportunity to develop existing skills and explore new interests. Every program and activity is open to all age groups and skill levels. We will work with each child to meet their distinctive needs and respect their individuality.
Major and Minors Allow Campers to Focus on Principal Activities While Trying New Ones
Each day at Camp Pillsbury is comprised of six one hour periods; three Majors and three Minors. Majors are taken at the same time each day with the same staff and campers. These are activities that each camper has chosen to learn more about, get better at and be in the end of session show or exhibition. At the start of each session, campers get to choose their 3 majors and each day choose their minors for that day from the ones available. This allows campers to thrive at what they enjoy and have plenty of opportunity to try new elective summer camp activities they have never been exposed to before.
