Traditions

HOG TROUGH

Teams of Adult Volunteers complete to see who can build a 16-ft. banana split the fastest!  It's messy, it's fun and everyone gets a bowl full of ice cream (or a popsicle) in the end.  

Camper Council

In their unit the campers brainstorms for ideas for the following year.  These include camp theme, t-shirt color, and spirit day.  Each unit choses a representative  to attend a special meeting to vote and narrow down the choices in each category. Then returns to their units to share and vote again.  At the final Camper Council meeting, the campers tally the votes and the results are announced on the final day of camp to get the girls excited for the next year!

WILLOW WOODFAIRY

Campers enjoy searching for Willow Wood Fairy's house in the woods so they can leave her notes full of curious questions.  Willow writes back to each camper every day and sprinkles notes with fairy dust, then her home magically appears in another part of the forest for campers to find the next day.

STINKY & BUCK

These camp mascots (plush skunks) are always sneaking around camp and they like to hide in a different spot every day.  Whoever finds Stinky or Buck gets a ticket for a small prize.

 MORNING ANTICS

After morning flag, we do goofy game competitions in the meadow. The campers cheer on their favorite Adult Volunteers and Program Aides. It makes a fun start to the day.

BROOMING

This is Camp Segonku's Bridging Ceremony. It was named by Witchypoo, the 1st PA leader of Camp Segonku. It takes place on Friday morning. We broom CIT to adult, PA to CIT, PAIT to PA, and LIA to PAIT.

T-Shirt Signing

On Friday, after lunch the campers enjoy signing each others T-shirt. This makes a wonderful keepsak.

GUESSING JAR

Every day there is a jar full of dozens or hundreds of treats in it.  As part of the daily routine, units will go look at the jar and write down their guess of how many items are in the jar.  The winner is announced at the end of the day flag ceremony and gets to take home or share the treats with her fellow campers.
