Camp Daily Schedule

Below is a schedule for a typical day for Stockade (ages 8–12) and Battalion (ages 12–18). Father-Son and Father-Daughter schedules are similar according to age groups.

Stockade Daily Schedule

  • Each morning the camp director, program director, and senior counselors meet together for a devotional time. This is followed by a time during which each senior counselor shares personal highlights from the previous day. Then all the leaders pray together for the camp and the campers.

  • 7:30  Reveille
  • 7:50  Flag Raising
  • Each camper spends some time alone going through a devotional book provided for them at the beginning of the week. If the camper has never had a personal devotional time, they can ask their senior counselor to walk them through the time.

  • 8:15  Breakfast Line-Up
  • All meals begin with all the campers walking into the dining hall singing, followed by a prayer. Cabins sit and eat together at the same table. After the meal is more singing, mail delivery, and announcements.

  • 8:45  Cabin Clean-Up
  • The senior counselor leads his cabin of campers in a daily Bible study. Each day they go through a devotional book written for that year of camp. They read Bible passages and answer questions that are meant to give them a deeper understanding of God and their relationship with Him.

  • 10:05  Travel to Craft
  • The camper spends this time participating in the first activity they signed up for at camp. (If they are a Stockade half-week camper, father-son camper, or father-daughter camper, the activity is chosen by the program director.) This time is led by a trained senior or junior counselor who will teach them the safety and art of the activity. As the week goes on, the camper will experience exciting aspects of the activity while becoming more proficient in it.

  • 11:30  Clean-Up
  • 11:40  Lunch Line-Up
  • 11:45  Lunch
  • The senior counselor and his cabin or campers spend this time resting in the cabin. Sleep is not required, but silence is mandatory. With all the daily activities in which the campers participate, they would crash by the end of the week without these scheduled times of rest.

  • The camper is allowed to purchase no more than two sugary items (drinks, candy bars, etc.) during their visit to the camp store.

  • 1:50  Travel to Craft
  • The camper spends this time participating in the second activity they signed up for at camp. (If they are a Stockade half-week camper, father-son camper, or father-daughter camper, the activity is chosen by the program director.) This time is led by a trained senior or junior counselor who will teach them the safety and art of the activity. As the week goes on, the camper will experience exciting aspects of the activity while becoming more proficient in it.

  • Each day the senior counselor and his cabin participate in a different activity chosen by the program director. This will give the camper the opportunity to experience different activities they did not sign up for.

  • The camper may choose any activity they want to participate in during this time. This includes non-organized activities, like swimming, canoeing, fishing, games in the gym, or hiking.

  • 5:30  Clean-Up
  • 5:40  Dinner Line-Up
  • 5:45  Dinner

  • 8:30  Clean-Up
  • 8:45  Flag Lowering
  • The entire camp is led by the junior counselors in campfire activities at a different location each night. The night begins with fun and energetic singing and entertaining skits. At the end of the night, the songs transition into praise songs, and one of the senior counselors gives a biblical message.
