2020 Overnight Camp Session Dates:
Overnight 1: Sunday, Aug 2 – Friday, Aug 7
Overnight 2: Sunday, Aug 9 – Friday, Aug 14
Overnight Camp sessions are hosted at beautiful Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. Campers and Gotta Staffers reside in classic dorms, and all of our delicious meals are provided by Brewster’s wonderful dining hall that is willing and able to accommodate any dietary restrictions. Overnight Camp is open to campers age 10-14, going into grades 5-9. Check-in is on Sunday afternoon, and pick-up is Friday afternoon.
Overnight camp is six days and five nights of non-stop activity, right from the first moment! Each morning, campers work in teams of 10 with two staff members to create a solution to the week’s Gotta-Problem – this includes coming up with a story, writing and learning a script, and building all of the associated props, scenery, costumes, and technical devices.
Every afternoon, campers select from a wide variety of activities—outdoor games, swimming, or a specialty session—a potpourri of stagecraft techniques, arts and crafts, unusual projects, and so much more. Evening activities range from campfires to group games and even a talent show. Finally, we wind down with milk and cookies before heading back to dorms to get ready for bed.
