A Typical Day

Our campers and staff would probably say “there is no ‘typical‘ day at New Moon – as every day offers something different. The daily schedule below gives a flow to most days. We mix things up a little on Wednesday with a short sleep-in (“Hump Day”, and ‘Super Sunday’ which begins with an extended sleep-in is packed with special programming.

Individual Choice of various offerings is available every 3rd period, and Clinics during 5th period allow campers to focus more on areas of camp they love.
