Activities at Camp Mowglis are called Industries
Mowglis campers age 10 and up choose 100% their activities, which we call “Industries.” Campers ages 7 to 9 in the Cub Program rotate through (almost) all of our activities, experiencing each as a group.
Instruction and Skills
Each Industry has a particular series of skills or ribbon requirements that a camper must master to earn that Industry’s ribbon. The ribbons are valued for the skills and accomplishments they represent. Campers who earn four or more ribbons are invited to sit in the Inner Circle at the campfire in an end-of-summer ceremony that is both moving and memorable.
During each of the daily industry periods, campers work with experienced counselors to have fun, learn new skills, and progress toward mastering those skills. Our highly skilled and enthusiastic instructors, and the ribbon requirement structure of each Industry encourages Mowglis campers to become experienced and proficient in their chosen Industries…all the while having a ton of fun!
How a Regular Mowglis Day is Structured
There are three, one hour-long industry periods each day. Two of these periods last for two weeks and allow campers to build solid skills in their chosen pursuits. The third daily activity period is a daily sign-up, where campers select from our wide variety of land and water activities for just that period.
Campers are encouraged to try all the Industries and then choose where they want to specialize. As campers become proficient, they help teach younger campers. These experiences, new skills, and achievements often turn into lifelong interests and hobbies. Visit the Mowglis daily schedule to learn more.
