NEOC supports the curiosity Wolves — our Middle School-age campers — have and the independence and social connection they crave. Activities encourage them to take risks, enjoy practicing and mastering concepts and skills, and explore trust. All of this is within a framework that supports and builds self-awareness and self-confidence. Small group sizes ensure that counselors will know each camper in a personalized way!
Wolves are given opportunities to be leaders in our community and mentor fellow campers of all ages.
No matter how many weeks a wolf chooses to spend at NEOC, they leave with greater confidence in themself and ready to advocate for the natural world around them! They enjoy an immersion and independence that is typical of an overnight camp experience, with the joy of sharing camp stories at home with their family each night.
Camp days are divided into five activity periods, plus lunchtime.
Wolves have core activities that they do during their three morning activity periods through the week, like archery, art, canoeing, field games, shelter building, and trail walks. They opt into two afternoon activities each day, that change through the week.
Examples of the afternoon sign-ups are:
- Disc golf
- Dream catchers
- Eco tag
- Friendship bracelets
- Leaf printing
- Nature weaving
- Rock painting
- Rounders (British baseball)
- Science experimentation
- Ultimate frisbee
Structure of a Week
Each week begins with the whole camp gathering for call-and-repeat songs, expectation setting, and introductions to the counselors. Then, age-divided groups head-out for team building.
Each day ends with group time where Wolves have an opportunity to reflect on their day and prioritize the sign-up activities offered the next afternoon.
Thursday's theme day, which is new each week and revealed with great excitement on the morning of, is a chance for Wolves to conquer new challenges and enjoy twists on familiar activities.
Camp ends each week with s'mores!
