The Benefits of the 15 and 12 Day Program

Whether you are trying camp out for the first time or have been at it for years, being away from home for any length of time can be daunting, especially if you haven’t done so before. At Camp Ahmek and Camp Wapomeo, we offer sessions varying in length from 4 days to 2 months – really, something for everyone!

At TSC, there are multiple session options to choose from. The 15 Day and 12 Day sessions are geared towards first time campers, campers who are not quite ready for the full month session and for those who have many events and activities packed into their summer schedule.

The 12 and 15 Day sessions, often referred to at camp as our ‘two week’ sessions, are beneficial for many reasons.

  1. It gives campers who are maybe a bit hesitant or nervous about the idea of being away from home a shorter option. Although a bit shorter in length, it is still long enough to allow campers to adjust and then fully immerse into the camp routine.
  2. Campers in these sessions also get to try all the activities offered and develop a sense of what camp is all about.
  3. Campers get the opportunity to go on canoe trips that are not too long but also, not too short. They are varying lengths depending on the age group and introduce campers to the canoe trip lifestyle, allowing them to develop practical skills that are helpful on canoe trip and back at home!

Here’s what a parent of a 15 Day camper had to say about the program…

“My daughter had a wonderful time at camp. She came home from Wapomeo exuding a level of confidence that I have never seen before. She told me about how she carried heavy packs with ease across long portages, made new friends both in her cabin and in others, played her ukalele in front of an audience for the first time and got her highest level in swimming yet. She had so much fun and learned and  accomplished so much within the 2 weeks at camp. She talks about camp all the time and cannot wait for next summer!”

Summer camp is truly a place to learn and grow. Whether you’re there for 2 weeks or 2 months, it will be an experience you never forget.
