Xpedition Campers also end their day with an all camp meeting to reflect on the current day and prepare for the next exciting camp day.

    Every afternoon, counselors from each group nominate an Xpedition Leader who will help the counselor meet and welcome new campers to their respective groups.

    Plinko for Icees

    Throughout the week, campers cheer on their peers as the Plinko puck drops, deciding the fate of whether or not the campers will receive an ice-cold ice pop. On really hot days, the Plinko Board has an amazing way to find the proper slot so everyone wins!
