Typical Day

A “typical” day at Camp Katonim starts at 9:00 am at Main Camp at the flag pole and ends at 4:30 pm down at the Beach at Tree.  Campers spend their time in a cabin group divided primarily by age. There are three activity periods in the morning and two additional activity periods after lunch.  The day ends with a camp-wide General Swim and Free Period before gathering at Tree for some Katonim cheers and dismissal. Hot lunches are provided on Wednesdays and Fridays.

We offer a full range of activities including: WatersportsLandsports and The Arts. Campers do not choose their activities, but rather are scheduled in as a cabin group. A rotating schedule enables the campers the opportunity to participate in each activity at least a few of times per week. The one exception is swim class which we try to schedule every day.

Although this is a “typical” day, every day is a little different and special in its own way. Every Wednesday evening we invite interested campers to return to camp from 7:00 – 8:00 pm for Hobbie Hubs – a special evening of camper’s choice activities ending with a marshmallow roast. Our weekly programming is also supplemented with Special Events such as “theme days”, and also exciting activities such as Rock Climbing, Archery Tag and Zoo Tek. As well, each cabin participates in one overnight per season. For more up to date information, please refer to our 2020 Schedule.
