Activities

See Red Pine's Activities in Action! Most classes have video clips. 

Individual activity programming is determined by abilities and interests, allowing campers to meet and interact with others outside of their cabin group. Campers are encouraged in a safe and supportive environment to enter wholeheartedly into the fun and spirit of daily life and adventure. Campers, along with their parents, select their own activities prior to arrival at camp and follow a daily schedule. The program encourages each girl to live and perform to the best of her ability - with consideration for others at all times.The balanced program affords rich opportunity to broaden interest and develop skills in a wide variety of activities. All activities are led by qualified instructors with well thought out lesson plans. Equipment is well-maintained and safety is a key consideration at all times.

*All campers are evaluated on their first day at camp to check their proficiency in swimming. At that time, it is decided which waterfront activities will be best suited for their level of expertise.

**All campers are required to wear life vests at all times when on all boats and while water-skiing.

Waterfront Safety - Approved floatation devices are required for all waterfront activities both instructional and for leisure. Red Pine provides additional supervision from our patrol boats and our office. Waterfront activities are canceled immediately at the first sight of threatening weather.
