Ages 7 & 8
Manatees and Seals (ages 7 & 8)
The Manatees & Seals, Hayground's seven and eight year-old campers, consist of one seven year old group ( Manatees ) and mixed-age groups ( Seals ) headquartered in the Kitchen Building.
The daily schedule for these groups consists of hour-long blocks, with at least three different choices per hour. Activities for this age group include art, music, sports, woodshop, gardening, cooking, swimming, field games and Tonkatown. In addition, Seals may participate in the Sailing program and all three groups may participate in the Trapeze program.
Counselors for this age group are experienced teachers and returning counselors, supported by a full staff of assistant counselors. The ratio for this group is approximately one counselor for every 6 campers.
