Clan Families

Everyone at camp is divided into four clan families. Once someone is sorted into a clan, they remain with them for life … or as long as they are a part of camp.

Similar to “Colour Wars” legends of summer camp history all over the world, clans build team spirit and challenge campers to work together. Each clan consists of both female and male campers and staff of all ages.

There are opportunities to gain and lose points on behalf of your clan in the form of inter-clan activities and ongoing awareness games.

Clan activities happen in the evenings from 6 – 7:30 pm. For this time period the camp is with their clan family, other than that they do everything else with their cabin groups.
