The Somerset program is designed to provide campers with fun and opportunity through a balance of elective activities, bunk activities, intracamp and intercamp competitions, day and overnight trips, community service projects, special events, and a comprehensive evening program that allows campers to display their talents, relax in the peacefulness of camp, or just be downright silly.
Our broad range of activities allows campers to hone existing skills in the areas they are most passionate about and challenge themselves to try something new for the very first time. The comprehensive program provides opportunities for individual growth and achievement, and teaches virtues that can be learned only as part of a team and through healthy competition.
Somerset’s scheduling system ensures that each camper has a well-rounded day filled with time in or on the water, on the fields, and engrossed in a creative activity. Younger campers have a more structured schedule, guaranteeing exposure to everything Somerset has to offer. As campers mature, they’ll have more choices in their schedules, so they can spend more time doing what they love most.
Through a blend of high-level instruction, intra- and intercamp competition, and free choice on Sundays, campers will learn new skills, hone existing ones, and discover things they never knew they loved.
Healthy competition can have a deeply positive impact on a young girl. It’s a chance for collaboration, to learn how to win and lose with grace, and an opportunity to feel part of something bigger than herself.
