The Camp Sloane Experience

Not Your Average Day

Every day at Camp Sloane is a day for making new friends, building confidence and being inspired to try new things.

Your camper will have a sense of belonging, live with integrity and learn skills that they can use during the year at school and for the rest of their life.

Camp Sloane has so many activities and fun things going on that no single day is 'average' by any means!

Tent Life

Every camper will live in a tent made up of 5-7 campers and 1-2 counselors. There are 6-7 tents in each village. Our villages create a sense of belonging for each camper and each have their own awesome traditions and communities.

Campers get to spend each day living and playing with the other campers in their village but campers also get to select the activities they would like to participate throughout their session. A schedule is made for each camper based on the preferences they individually make on their first full day, so while they can choose to do some activities with friends, they can also select to try something new or different.

Every camper gets to swim each day and there is also a fifth activity period that is our free-choice period of the day.
