Our Approach at Young Set Club
At Young Set Club, each day is an opportunity for creativity, friendship, leadership and fun! YSC provides a highly organized curriculum and culture of enabling campers the ability to modify components of the curriculum to best serve their interests. Young Set Club is all about Choice & Voice!
From archery to tinkering, we believe there are many ways to explore new things. Our daily schedule is customized for campers to experience fun and engaging camp activities three different ways throughout the day: camper choice, curriculum-based skill building, and camper led activities.
Camper Choice activities provide time for campers to choose from available interest areas during times like free flow and open rec.
Curriculum-based skill building activities follow weekly topics or ongoing projects and are designed for campers to engage hands-on with materials, experience new ideas and concepts, and collaborate with other campers.
Camper-led activities provide opportunities for campers to take ownership of camp based on their interests. Our staff support campers to create their own activities and develop young leadership.
