GETTING RID OF RULES DESIGNED FOR ADULT CONVENIENCE

 

We develop agreements and find creative ways of coming to an understanding to create a place where everyone is safe, comfortable, and able to have the time of their lives. What that boils down to is agreeing to protect the future of camp, respect ourselves and others, and work through conflict when it arises. Watch our welcome video for new campers below.

 
 

“This place is magical and special and all the nice words! We sent our 5 year old here for a week and it changed her life for the better. Thank you Camp Stomping Ground!”

DAILY SCHEDULE

At Stomping Ground almost everything is optional as long as you aren’t taking away from other people’s experience, keeping yourself and the community safe, and are supervised by a staff member. 

Because we are constantly asking campers what they like and every person is different our schedule is constantly evolving. This is the latest iteration. We can’t imagine the different elements will change too much, but we almost certainly will adjust timing and frequency each week to personalize the experience for each camper.

ALL CAMP GAMES

Every night we play larger than life immersive games like Fortress, a giant sponge war around the lake, or Harry Potter themed capture the flag. Kate, our program director, is constantly dreaming up new ideas to challenge what we think is possible. Of course, you can always hang out in DTSG if that night's game isn't for you.
