The one you think of.
Picture a traditional summer camp in America - from wooden cabins to watersports, food fights and sneak out nights - this is your private camp.
A private or traditional summer camp means a privately-owned. The majority of these camps will been running for many generations which means they are likely to have long lasting traditions and values within their community.
Private camps epitomize the traditional summer camp experience.
Facilities and accommodation
At private summer camps, you will commonly live in a cabin with campers whose parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents attended the same camp.
The traditions held at camp are one of the most valuable, inspiring and important features of the summer.
Many camps will have very modern and advanced facilities. The range of activities at these camps will be vast; waterfront activities, arts, performance, horse-riding and super special events such as Olympics and Color War!
Often, private camps are split by gender, so all-boys or all-girls. The beauty of this is that the campers don't feel pressure to look or act a certain way. Some camps may also be co-ed, so you can gain experience teaching both boys and girls.
The majority of the campers that attend these camps tend to come from more affluent areas so camp is like an escape for them. They get to have shaving foam parties, spend time away from their beloved smart phones and generally just act like kids.
