A Typical day at Camp Michigamme
*Every week is slightly different, this is a generic schedule to give you an idea of what to expect at a typical camp day. Some curriculum based weeks such as Science Explorations may have a more rigid schedule, while other weeks have less a deliberate plan and are more designed for your camper to exercise choice and autonomy in picking the activities they would prefer. If you have questions about a more specific schedule, inquire directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
