First Time Campers
For many of our first time campers, it’s their first time away from their parents. The vast majority of these children readily adjust to camp life quickly! Others require some help and special attention, and we’re happy to provide. At Camp Chinqueka, we are dedicated to making sure each camper is well taken care of and that camp is a positive growth experience filled with amazing memories, relationships, and fun. Each session starts in the afternoon. When you first arrive at camp, first time campers will meet lots of new people – our Director, Amanda, as well as cabin counselors and fellow campers. After getting settled in the cabin, first timers get a quick orientation of camp before diving into the camp program. For their first meal, they will eat dinner with new friends in their cabin. On day 2, they will have their first day of instructional activities in the morning and elective activities in the afternoon. They will also get assigned to a new table for meals that week, allowing them to make friends with campers of all ages.
