A day at Canadensis has a little bit of everything and something for everyone!

Combining structure with choice, campers enjoy a well rounded schedule but also personalize each day with individual elective choices. Our program grows with the campers as they move up in age group each summer by giving older campers more elective periods in their scheduled day.

We feel that camp is a place to experience so many wonderful and different activities and our daily schedule reflects that, incorporating Athletics, Water Sports, Outdoor Adventure and the Arts each day. At Canadensis, most of a camper’s day is spent with other campers their own age out on the fields and courts, in the pools, on beautiful Lake Lenape or in the Art Center. Our Program Area Directors plan summer activities that are fun, safe and age appropriate with the understanding that the focus is on participation and having a good time.

We are Camp “CAN”adensis…we CAN have fun, no matter what we’re doing!

Individual electives allow for campers to customize their schedule and receive more specialized instruction. Campers choose from a wide assortment of electives, and campers can keep the same electives for the entire summer or decide to change them on a weekly basis. Before dinner is Free Play, a time when campers can continue to shape their schedule, and choose to participate in their favorite activities.

  • Campers Completing Grades 2-5 have 1 elective period every day.

  • Campers Completing Grades 6-9 have 2 elective periods every day
    (one in the morning, one in the afternoon).
