CAMP PROGRAM INFO: ACTIVITIES At Kamp Kohut, we have an elective program. That means you can choose your own schedule each week. There are 50+ different activity choices! Before you come to camp, you'll complete an activity sign-up form at home with your parents and send it back to us before the summer starts. Your schedule will be all ready to go when you get to camp, full of six activities from your top ten list! After the first week at camp, you will sign up for the next week's activities. You may choose to stay with the same activities or try some different ones. The same is true for week three. We want you to go as far as you would like in an activity, but also be exposed to lots of new activities. If you don't see a particular activity you are looking for, don't worry! We probably offer it during Daily Choice.

Daily Choice gives you the chance to try something new every single day! During Daily Choice, you can try activities that are on the regular schedule (it's kind of like a "taste-test!") or you can sign up for something completely different, like Extreme Bocce, Ultimate Frisbee, or Magic Tricks. Another fun time is Evening Activity, where you and your bunkmates will participate together in an all-camp event or an organized activity just for you! It's a great opportunity for bunk bonding and exposure to different areas of camp. You can read more about our activities on our Program page.
