Orcas (11 & 12) and Gators (13)
Hayground's eldest campers, the Orcas and Gators, are a mixed-age group headquartered in our newest building, The Pavilion.
The Orca and Gator's daily schedule is comprised of hour-long blocks, with at least two different choices of activity per hour. Activities include art, music, sports, woodshop, gardening, cooking, swimming, and field games.
As Hayground's senior members, the Orcas and Gators enjoy special privileges such as beach trips twice a week and weekly Friday field trips. Past field trips have included kayaking, mini-golf, movies, an on-campus carnival, and Splish Splash water park. The Orcas and Gators also receive first priority for our Sailing and Trapeze programs, and enjoy special intensive workshops with visiting musicians.
In addition, as future Counselors in Training, those campers who are interested are invited to be a part of our Internship program which affords campers an opportunity to see what it is like to work with younger kids and make magic happen for those younger campers as their counselors do the same for them.
