A Typical Day


The daily activities at Brantwood Camp are carefully structured around our philosophy of honesty, loyalty, cooperation, good sportsmanship, and unselfishness. Our activities get campers to live, think, and act responsibly, with self-reliance and self-esteem.

Each day, campers follow a schedule that includes three meals, six activity periods, camp duties, chapel with inspirational talk, evening campfires and sing-alongs, and rest periods. 

Our goal is to develop character, confidence, and physical, intellectual, and emotional independence in all our campers.
