On weekdays, you'll wake up, have breakfast, clean up your cabin, and study the Bible Lesson before heading off to Morning Meeting, where the whole camp gathers to share spiritual insights and discuss plans for that day. Then it's off to two hour-long activity periods (like swimming, waterskiing, or archery) before lunch and rest hour.
In the afternoon, you'll have two more activity periods, followed by a free period, where you have lots of different choices of what to do each day, like more waterskiing, writing poetry, board games, or playing a game of soccer. Every night after dinner, there's an evening activity – which can be anything from cabin night to "sock attack" to capture-the-flag. The day comes to a close by sharing gratitude, highlights, and daily acts of good with your cabin mates before climbing into bed.
Saturdays are team-oriented, with everyone participating in a team project in the morning and in team competitions in the afternoon. On Saturday nights, we gather together for Owatonna's weekly council fire.
On Sundays, you'll get together with the girls from Camp Newfound for Sunday School in the morning, and then all have a big beach party – with bumper tubing, paddle boarding, and jumping off the rope swing – in the afternoon. Sundays end with cabin night--a favorite camp night where cabins do special activities together that could be playing board games, going down the slip and slide, bumper tubing and making s’mores, baking cookies, or doing a treasure hunt.
