Evening Activity

Evening Activities begin after dinner and are a mix of full-camp and division-based activities. Some examples include: Gold Rush (Lower Camp),Panic (each age group), Candy Horse Races (Lower Camp), Talent shows, and Campfire (weekly–all camp).


Selective is the last period of the day. It is a daily choice period for all age groups (including Oskis & Cascos). During Selective we offer traditional AND non-traditional activities. Examples include: flag football, Frisbee, quiet reading outside, cheerleading, etc. Upper Camper campers may opt to have bunk time during Selective.


Campfires take place once a week up at the “Old Pine” (Wicosuta’s founding spot under an old pine tree). Campfires are lead by the Totems. Campfires are quiet and serious at times, and also lots of fun. After the opening ceremony, we sing camp songs and play games. Each campfire has a theme such as friendship or new beginnings, and campers have the opportunity to speak about the theme. Campfires end with delicious chocolate chip cookies and milk.


Each bunk is responsible for a booth that is set up on the soccer field. Examples include: Coke/Pepsi challenge, cake walk, tattoos, count the candy, as well as lots of water-based rides/activities: a dunk tank, slip ‘n’ slide, sponge toss, etc. The carnival lasts all afternoon and ends with an all-camp water-balloon toss!

Monster Mash

It’s Halloween during the summer! This spooky activity is for Lower Camp campers. All campers and counselors use their resources to dress up in costume, and campers have the opportunity to parade so everyone can see them. Priscilla tells (not-so-scary) ghost stories and provides special, ghostly snacks!

Gold Rush

An evening activity for Lower Camp and Totems. It involves counselors dressing up and playing the following roles: bankers, bandits, sheriffs, and kissing sisters. Tennis balls serve as “gold” and campers try to get as many as possible off the soccer field without getting caught by bandits and kissing sisters. The more gold your bunk has, the better chance you have to win the prize you choose at the auction after the event!

Candy Horse Races

This is a Lower Camp evening activity where campers get to bet (fake money) on their favorite “horse”/counselor. Each “horse” has a theme, such as luau horse, sporty horse, celebrity horse, etc. The campers with the most winnings receive prizes.


Talent Shows

There are several talent shows throughout each session. They provide opportunities for campers to get on stage and show us their amazing abilities.
