A Day at Owatonna

A Day at Owatonna

Cell phones and social media are replaced by laughing and throwing a football with cabin mates. Homework is replaced by card games and ultimate Frisbee under a full moon. Traffic noise is replaced by the sound of the splash after swinging off the rope swing and the click-clack of a ping pong match. School is replaced by cutting through the lake on a waterski, getting a bullseye on the archery range, scoring a goal in an inter-camp game, and building a popsicle stick castle in arts and crafts. Friendships are made and deepened. Daily use of Christian Science is practiced. Nothing beats a day in the life at Camp Owatonna!

In addition to regular activities, throughout each camp session there are special events like games against other camps, sports clinics, sailing regattas, long-distance swims, bouldering day trips, and rock climbing competitions.

And every evening after dinner, the camp comes together for activities including club night, council fire, cabin nights, or an all-camp game of capture the flag.
