|Electives are offered to all campers enrolled in General Camp and Special Programs. |
Electives give campers the opportunity to make choices while here at camp, whether its delving into a specific program area they enjoy or challenging themselves to try something new.
Each week, campers choose from a variety of creative, active and fun activities, allowing them to tailor their own Summer Fenn experience.

Lower Campers' electives introduce campers to the individual choice that is an integral part of the Summer Fenn experience. Counselors offer a variety of activity options throughout each week that are created with the needs and interests of this younger age group in mind, therefore their choices differ from those of our older campers. Staff work closely with campers, guiding them as they make positive choices about how to participate fully at a level they will enjoy. By maintaining a high level of flexibility we ensure that campers have fun and are successful.
