Schedule

Every day campers attend their set schedule of activities/classes. These activities are chosen before camp begins from options in theater, dance, music, visual art, filmmaking and writing.

 

Campers take the same five activities each day for the full camp session. They can choose activities within the same discipline or a variety of disciplines. It’s up to them!

Daily Activity Schedules

Each camper has a schedule of five daily activities that they select before camp starts. Campers attend these five activities every day for the full camp session. Campers can change their schedule on a space-available basis in the first three days of camp. Campers can request identical schedules.

The 2022 activity lists will be available in May 2022 after we have hired our staff.

 

Activity Selection

Campers will rank their activity choices. Activities are not assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We do our best to give as many campers as many of their first choices as possible. Campers receive their schedules on the first day of camp.

Note: Based on the guidance of our consultants at George Washington University Hospital, the CDC and the D.C. government, we may have to shift to a cohort model that has campers interact with a smaller number of people. This decision will be made when the activity choices are released in May 2022.

 

Small Groups

Each camper belongs to a small group much like a homeroom. This group eats lunch together, sits together at the Noontime Show and begins and ends the day together. Friends can request to be in the same small group. Small groups are of campers of a similar age/grade.

 

Daily Noontime Show

There is a show every day at Camp Arena Stage with the most supportive audience ever. Campers can sign up as individuals or with others to share art of all kinds! Campers sing, dance, perform skits and scenes, play instruments, hula-hoop, read poetry and stories, show soccer skills, display visual art, cartwheel and more. Classes also perform during this time.

 

Choice

An opportunity to break up the day, during the Choice period campers participate in recreational activities. Activities may include Ultimate Frisbee, a craft project, board games, improv games, sidewalk chalk, open mic, friendship bracelets, design challenges, relay races and many more.
