A Typical Day

Our ProgramOur Program

Our program is for all levels of interests and abilities. Everyone shines comfortably in his or her own way. This is a healthy, non-competitive environment.

We have found that our campers just want to be regular kids, no matter their ability. No intense pressure, just the opportunity to improve, try new activities and enjoy fun, special events while developing respectful friendships.

We offer a lot of competition, but we are not competitive. There is a big difference! If one wants to be on a team, they are…they just have to attend practice. We offer teams in all sports and at different levels of competition (Intermurals, Intercamps and Wayne County Elimination Tournaments). We want kids to have fun, have the opportunity to play and just try their best.

A Typical Day

We offer instruction and skill development for all activities: land, water, adventure and even chess! Our coaches, who consist of professionals, high school coaches and college players are top-notch and work with groups, teams, and individuals.

For campers looking to focus in a particular sport or area of interest, we offer optional Sports Master Clinics, Culinary Cooking, Golf, Horseback Riding and Fine Arts.

At night, our entire camp family usually comes together for our creative and fun evening activities. It is a great way for siblings, friends and different ages to spend time together, and learn from one another.

If we had a typical day (that’s the beauty of being at Camp Towanda, everyday is different and exciting, we don’t get bored here!), it would be something like this…

Our Program

ACA Accredited

ACA Accreditation means that the camp you are considering for your child cares enough to undergo a thorough (over 300 standards) review of its operation – from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. American Camp Association collaborates with experts from The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross and other youth service agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.

ACA helps accredited camps provide:
Healthy, developmentally appropriate and learning experiences and activities;
Discovery through experiential education; Caring, competent role models;
Service to the community and the environment; Opportunities for leadership and personal growth.

Accreditation is voluntary and ACA accreditation assures families that camps have made the commitment to a safe, nurturing environment for their children.

ACA goes beyond basic requirements for health, cleanliness, and food service into specific areas of programming, including camp staff from director throughout counselors, emergency management plans, health care, and management. ACA applies separate standards for activities such as waterfront, adventure and travel.

Parents can (and should) verify the accreditation status of any camp at any time by visiting ACA’s website www.ACAcamps.org or by calling 1-800-428-CAMP.
If the camp you are considering is not ACA accredited, ask WHY NOT?

Camp Towanda is not only accredited by the American Camp Association, but has staff members that serve on the ACA Board of Directors as well as one of their Accreditation Inspectors of other camps. Mitch is a former board member himself, of the ACA as well as a Steering Committee member and speaker at the annual camp association conference. He is actively involved and on the boards of several charitable organizations (SCOPE, L.O.V.E. and VisionWalk) that he gets the campers involved in.
