“The Mont-sters of Day Camp” are here for our annual episode on harnessing the spirit of overnight camp at your day camp!

If YOU have experienced both day camp AND resident camp, agree that a great day camp captures the “Sleepaway Camp” Spirit- This episode, our third annual episode on this topic, attempts to solve the riddle of WHAT IS the Sleepaway Camp Spirit, and what can we do in our meager little day camp setting between the limited hours, staff going home every night, and kids ratting us out to their parents- The answer, we can do a whole lot.

In this episode, we cover:

  • What do people who don’t know day camp, not understand about the culture?
  • What are we even talking about - sleepaway camp spirit?
  • What concepts are we able to “bring over” from the overnight camp experience?
  • What cool things our camps do to give that vibe
  • Challenges to achieve this - Staff that go home at night, parents who interrogate their kids every afternoon, etc.
