Our Activities

We are the Leaders in Camp Programming

At Camp Emerson, campers design their own schedules every 2 weeks. You’ll pick your favorite 6 activities to create your unique day each week.

There’s over 50 activities in: studio arts, performing arts, athletics, watersports, wilderness and “Step Beyond”.

New to an activity? We’ll take you from the beginning. Already good at something? You’ll go to the next level and beyond. The staff knows how to make the activities fun (after all it is your summer vacation) but also send you home with many new skills to show off.

Our one of a kind Step Beyond program is a collection of camper-created activities spanning the sciences, technology and arts. These are fast-paced, hands-on programs for kids who want intellectual stimulation and challenge. Check out each page under this activities section to learn about them all!
