In an effort to provide each camper with an ideal camp experience, Lonehollow offers a variety of one, two, and four-week sessions throughout each summer. This year, we are proud to introduce a brand new opportunity for first-time campers who are looking to build confidence and gain independence.
Here’s a breakdown of our new one-week Sprocket session.
The Elevator Pitch
The new and improved Sprocket program is a standalone one-week session designed for campers entering 1st-5th grades. The program mirrors our two-week sessions in that campers can custom-build their own activity schedules. They will participate in six activities of their choosing and four unique Evening Programs over the course of the session.
Dates, Rates, and Availability
The Sprocket program will run from July 8 – 12, 2019. Tuition is set at $1360 for the week with a $525 deposit that is fully refundable up until January 1, 2019. Open Enrollment is already underway for this session! Apply today to reserve a spot.
Tell Me More
The Sprocket program is designed to give first-time campers a peek into life at Lonehollow. Aside from crew events, the Sprocket experience will mirror that of a two-week camper.
Sprockets cabins will be assigned by grade level. On Opening Day, campers will arrive by bus and have a chance to meet their counselors and cabin mates and get settled in their bunks. Later, everyone will gather in the Bike Barn for a Sprocket Kick-Off and go on an action packed tour of Lonehollow, complete with a snack, a scavenger hunt, and a stop at the Slip ‘n’ Slide.
Campers will receive their activity schedules that day, custom-built for them by our Activity Directors and based on their individual preferences. They will follow the traditional Lonehollow daily schedule and will attend each of their six activities three times. Sprockets will participate in all Evening Programs which will include games, campfires, and a classic camp carnival.
Isn’t this the same as Short Term?
So you’ve done your research! Lonehollow also offers two other one-week sessions called Short Term 1 (July 28 – August 3) and Short Term 2 (August 5 – August 11). Unlike the Sprocket program which is a standalone session, Short Terms 1 and 2 run concurrently with Term 2B, a two-week session in which other two and four-week campers participate.
Spots are available to fill one cabin of boys and one cabin of girls, all in 2nd-4th grade. Short Term campers travel with their cabins to each of their activities and do not have the opportunity to create their own schedules. Campers who attend Short Term will also participate in some Evening Programs separate from main camp, such as Barn Night and Campfire.
How to Choose a One-Week Session
Now that you know the basics of each program, you may be wondering how to choose a one-week session. Keep in mind your camper’s preferences and personality. Does she need the extra guidance and built-in schedule buddy that comes with Short Term or is she looking to do her own thing and grow in independence? Does he want to experience Lonehollow as a Sprocket only with his fellow one-week campers or does he want to come when his older brother is there? Which dates work best with your family’s summer plans? There are many factors to take into account, but the fact remains that no matter which session you choose, your campers are bound to have the best week of their lives!
