Junior campers get the best of both worlds – the opportunity to experience some cabin group activities as well as the chance to sign up for classes themselves. New for this year, campers will jump right into classes on Sunday so they can learn even more in each of their activities. At the Junior session, campers will take 6 different classes every day for the remainder of the week.
Our Junior campers get to take a wide variety of classes while they are here. You then have the opportunity to choose which classes you would like for your daughter to take. After submitting these classes online (in the spring), we will pre-schedule them for you so that when you arrive at camp, we can start right into our program.
Our June and Main campers enjoy a total of 14 classes, rotating between a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule of 7 classes and a Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday schedule of 7 classes. Our August campers enjoy 7 total classes that they take every day.
June, Main, and August campers will schedule their classes on Opening Day after the swim check. Your daughter’s cabin counselor will help to make her schedule, ensuring she has the “perfect” mix of activities that she would like to take.
Some of our classes are only offered at longer sessions, and some are limited by age-range. Make sure to check out our detailed list of activities; your daughter can use this list to get an idea of what she would like to take before she even arrives.
We want your daughter to have the very best schedule and to enjoy all of her classes! Over the course of the first few days of camp, if your daughter does not enjoy one of her classes, she is more than welcome to switch into a different class. We explain how to do this several times to all of our campers.

Swimming is a required activity for all girls in the 1st – 4th grades at our June, Main, and August sessions. If you would like to excuse your daughter from swimming, please fill out this form letting us know.
Our schedule strikes a balance between activity and rest, giving campers opportunities to pursue their strengths and interests, while leaving plenty of time for quiet conversations with friends. Junior Camp follows a simplified version of our Daily Schedule, providing a good introduction to a summer at Greystone.
