Grades 8-9

Nobles Day Camp is all about choices.

We believe that campers choosing their own activities helps with their personal growth, encouraging them to try new things and develop decision-making skills.

Every day, campers join coed groups of children entering the same grade next fall. Each hour, campers choose which activity among a selection of two or three age-appropriate options that they would like to try. Although counselors encourage children to try new activities, the final decision rests with the camper.

As our campers mature, our programs offer more opportunities to increase personal growth, social development, and leadership skills. Campers earn the privilege of traveling, based on their behavior with both peers and staff, in and out of camp. Expectations increase with each age level as more freedom and responsibility is placed on the campers.


Campers choose from the following:
Archery, Arts & Crafts, Beading, Board Games, Boats (Canoes and  Kayaks), Fishing,  Clay/Ceramics, DanceGimp Lacings, Gymnastics, Outdoor Living SkillsPix (Digital Photography) and Flix (Video Productions)Ropes Course Challenge, Sewing, Sports: baseball, basketball, dodgeball, flag football, kickball, soccer, street hockey, volleyball, Swimming, Tennis, Theater, Tie Dye  and Woodworking

Field Trips

Groups balance the many exciting on-campus Nobles activity choices around their trip schedules*. Our campers in the 8th and 9th grades all travel out of camp at least twice per week. Safety is our main concern. Each group travels in a school or activity bus under the close supervision of their group counselors.  All CDC social distancing guidelines will be followed.
