The thing about camp is… there is no average day! From when reveille blows to when the oldest cabin falls asleep, days at camp are always an adventure, jam-packed with new inventions and time-honored traditions, special events and athletic competitions, structured activities and spontaneous fun. Camp Scatico’s magic is infused in every scheduled game and project, but also in all the in-between time: the cheers in the dining hall, walks along the lake to activity, flashlight time before bed.

It’s 8AM and reveille blows! Camp’s uniform of a white t-shirt and green shorts (no Scatico logo needed) means getting ready in the morning is that much easier, plus it works to support Scatico’s mission of inclusivity and minimizing social pressures.

The entire girls camp gathers on back campus for lineup each morning. It’s an opportunity to make any announcements (birthdays, tournament wins from the previous day, lost teeth) and come together as a community.

At Scatico we strive for a balance between structure and choice; skills development and loads of fun. On any given day, the schedule incorporates all four core program areas: Landsports, Watersports, Creative & Performing Arts and Outdoor Adventure. Aside from optional periods and a few specialty areas, divisions participate in every activity together.

I am so happy she has found a place where she can just be a kid for seven weeks straight without any interruptions.

All of girls camp eats simultaneously; each division and their counselors at their own tables. Meals are served family style, with main courses and sides placed at each table and a salad bar and “seconds table” to supplement whatever the meal is.

Camp is 100% peanut free. There is a gluten-free option at each meal, and our kitchen can work to accommodate any other dietary restrictions. Scatico is lucky to have had our two incredible chefs, Jimmy and Ricardo— friends and co-workers who run a catering company in the off-season—for seven years and counting.

Activities are always catered to campers’ ages and skill levels. Older campers choose up to half of their activities, allowing them to gain more one-on-one coaching and attention from specialized staff in the activities that most speak to them. Younger campers follow a more structured program, ensuring they participate in all activities and develop new skills.

The sun is coming down behind the trees, and the air grows a little cooler. Daylight might be fading, but the camp action is far from over. Evening activities are often a time when all of girls side comes together for a specialty event or joins with the boys camp for a co-ed activity. On girls side, every evening activity ends with the singing of the Alma Mater, an old camp tradition (which new campers learn the words to quickly).

Following evening activity, girls of all divisions convene on back campus for milk and cookies before heading back to their bunks. By 9:00PM taps blows. Older campers may have a specialty nighttime event, while younger campers get ready for bed with their counselors. After some “flashlight” time it’s lights out at Scatico… until the next day’s adventure.
