What are the hours of camp, and what does a typical day look like?

Our summer camp program starts at 7:30 AM and runs until 5:30 PM.  Campers will be picked up from their designated locations and transported to camp for breakfast.  We will then start our day with a morning meeting and opening ceremonies.

This summer, STEM educators from the State Library of Pennsylvania are bringing a mobile STEMlab to Camp Reily! Throughout the summer, students will participate in becoming an environmental ambassador, learning how citizen science contributes to a smart, critical-thinking world.

Students will be monitoring the local creek with an investigative project that engages them to think critically about the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Students will participate in background research with hands on activities geared at opening young minds to stewardship and civic action within their communities.

This program meets academic standards for the field.

Groups will then go through their morning activity rotation of arts & crafts, sports and nature time.  Campers will enjoy free time before lunch, with swimming, more group activities and snack after lunch.

There will also be an afternoon meeting and some cool down time before the children leave camp for their pick up locations. Some days will be slightly different due to field trips, guest speakers or special activities.
