Our schedule changes each week depending on the age group of campers. This is a general daily schedule of the activities that most campers will experience at Camp Akita. Want to see an actual 4th and 5th grade camp schedule from last year?
Wake-Up. Campers will get dressed, brush teeth, etc. in their cabins.
Devotions at Vesper Hill. Campers will hear a Morning Devotion from a Counselor centering on messages such as love, acceptance, faith, forgiveness, and being yourself.
Breakfast in the Dining Hall
Impact Groups. Campers will gather in randomly assigned Impact Groups to do faith-based and team-building activities with a new group of friends led by two Counselors.
Morning Game. All campers will reconvene for a full-group game, such as volleyball, capture the flag, or a Water Olympics in the lake. Cabin groups will join together to create teams.
Lunch in the Dining Hall
Free time. Activities include swimming in the lake, riding the Wet Willie water slides, visiting the Nature Cabin, doing crafts in the Craft Cabin, eating snacks in the Akita Café, climbing the Alpine Tower or riding the Giant Swing. There will also be daily Options, which include taking hikes, riding mountain bikes, playing field games, playing basketball, or watching a movie inside due to bad weather. All activities are led by the Counselors and supervised by the Leadership Staff.
Dinner in the Dining Hall
Downtime. Campers will spend about an hour playing on the basketball court or relaxing on the back deck of the lodge before beginning nightly activities.
Prime Time or Tiki Time. Older campers will participate in Prime Time (singing and dancing to a live band) and younger campers will sing along during acoustic outdoor Tiki Time.
Talks. Each night, campers will hear a full-group message delivered by the full-time church staff. Talks are age appropriate biblically based messages centered around personal stories such as love, acceptance, faith, forgiveness, and being yourself consistent with our message theme for the summer, this year the theme is "Road Trip" and how that is a metaphor for our faith journeys.
Cabin Time. Campers will gather in their cabins to have calm, deeper discussions with cabin mates and counselors.
Snack in the Dining Hall
Nighttime Activities. Depending on the camp session and the night of the week, there will be different evening activities. These include skits, dance parties, talent shows, the giant soap slide, lip sync competitions, full-group games, movie night, star gazing, campfires, a hike up to Bald Eagle, the highest point in camp, or our end-of-the-week closing worship. This does not always occur at 10pm; the activity will dictate the evening schedule.
Bedtime in the Cabins. The time of lights out varies from 10pm to 12am, depending upon the age group.
