Owl Program (Grades 3-4)
Owl program campers are starting to gain a little more independence and learning to make decisions for themselves. They are encouraged to try new things, and new activities are introduced at each grade-level. Campers experience creative play, compromise, friendship, and sharing within a group of their peers.
Like all age groups, Quail program campers will enjoy
- Six rotating activity periods each day, plus lunch, swim, and juice bars!
- A unique group theme created by their group, leading to special adventures.
- Activities like archery, arts & crafts, field sports and games, gaga, hiking, initiatives (team building activities), nature & ecology, playground sports & games (basketball, handball, tetherball, volleyball, etc.), performing arts, and swim!
- Plus the age-specific activities listed below.
- Practicing the Kinneret Roots: Independence, Teamwork, Creativity, Friendship, and Community.
