"Get Your Feet Wet"
For children going into 3rd and 4th grades (ages 8-10)
Two-week campers receive lots of individual attention and instruction in a fun-filled setting as they grow to LOVE camp!
What Is It?
If your camper is entering 3rd or 4th grade, Kamp Kohut offers an AWESOME TWO-WEEK program at the beginning of each session - an opportunity to get his or her feet wet before diving into Kamp completely! These young campers get a special dose of Kamp Kohut warmth and support as they check out what camp is all about. The best part is that if after two weeks, campers want to stay for the remainder of the session, they can!
Two-week campers explore all the same activities as our four-week campers -- you name it, they can try it! And don't forget the memorable events that make Kamp Kohut so special... Olympics, Kollege Days, campfires, s'mores, "Flippers," the Gold Rush, and Klue among many others.
Two-week campers experience the pride of INDEPENDENCE and ACCOMPLISHMENT in a fun and nurturing setting. Not only that, at the end of each exciting day, our campers get tucked in for another peaceful night at Kamp Kohut.
Getting to Kamp Kohut
Two-week campers arrive on the same day and in the same way that four-week campers do, either by car, bus, or plane. Please see travel for details. Two-week campers are welcome to use any of the Kohut chaperoned options. Kohut Travel options are all open for your convenience and we are happy to coordinate these plans with you.
Option to Extend
Once everyone arrives, all campers dive straight into an action-packed schedule, beginning in the afternoon of Opening Day. Our youngest campers, both two- and four-week will have a bit more supervision from their supportive and nurturing counselors as they participate fully in all activities. Bedtime routines and other key times are monitored more closely to ensure these little ones are finding their way and adjusting happily to the camp experience. Because of this supportive and nurturing start for our youngest campers, our hope is that these two-week campers will adjust fully to camp life and feel comfortable enough to stay for the entire summer with their friends! Indeed, 90% of our two-week campers end up staying the full session.
Departing Kamp Kohut
If a two-week camper does not extend his or her stay to the full four weeks, Departure Day transportation is arranged on a camper-to-camper basis. Typically, parents will arrange to pick up their camper directly from Kohut, though we will make sure all belongings are packed neatly and ready to go.
If a two-week camper decides to extend his or her stay to the full four weeks, all Kohut Travel options are once again offered for your convenience and we are happy to coordinate these plans with you.
Because our two-week campers will enjoy the full Kamp Kohut experience in the time they are with us, the supplied packing list will still be applicable. (Laundry is done once a week, right at camp.) Kohut provides all equipment with the exception of in-line skates, but please feel free to bring any favorite baseball bats, tennis racquets, horseback riding helmets, lacrosse sticks, etc.
We welcome communication with parents! Our communication policy is the same for parents of two- and four- week campers, with the exception that we will contact you after 7-10 days to discuss your camper’s “Option to Extend.”
