A DAY AT NOKOMIS
Every day begins with reveille at 7:30, followed by the raising of the Canadian flag. Each morning we raise the flag to a different national anthem.
Breakfast is at 8:30 where a typical meal might be pancakes and sausages or cereal and muffins. Each morning alternates between hot and cold breakfasts.
Following breakfast, campers work together during cabin clean-up.
A bell rings at 10:00 signalling the start of morning program. Campers participate in the activities with their cabin groups. In the morning there are 2 one-hour periods, which may include archery, camp craft, canoeing, arts & crafts, games, creative games, or swimming. In between periods there is a 15-minute Juice Break.
Lunch is at 1:00 where a typical meal might be spaghetti and caesar salad, tacos, or macaroni and cheese. Following lunch, campers have a rest period in their cabins until 2:30.
A bell rings at 2:30 to start the afternoon program. Like the morning program, there are 2 one-hour periods as well as a Juice Break.
Dinner is at 6:00 and a typical meal might be mini-pizzas, grilled cheese, jamaican beef patties, or hamburgers.
Every other day at 7:30, a bell will ring for Tuck. Tuck is a treat that every camper receives and it might be a bag of chips, a chocolate bar, or a popsicle.
Every evening a bell with go for Evening Program. The entire camp participates in Evening Program and some popular ones include Capture the Flag, Clue, Nokomis Live, Campfires, and Murder Mystery.
We end each day with the lowering of the flag while we sing Taps. Following Taps, all the campers are visited by the Camp Nurse as they prepare for lights out.
