The camp calendar is an ongoing schedule indicating important days and explains the activities that are offered each week. Each week's activities are inspired by a chosen theme. Each two-week session includes, a canoe trip, a fishing derby, crazy dress-up days, a Late Night, and an All-Camp-Get-Together each Friday. This way your child will have the opportunity to participate in the full Evergreen experience. In addition to these special activities, sporting events are held throughout the summer with major tournaments indicated on the calendar. Check out descriptions of calendar events below!
ARRG! Pirate Dress up day!
Crazy Dress-Up Days
Crazy Dress-Up days usually occur on Fridays. This allows campers to get a little crazy and wear something they normally don't wear to camp. We encourage campers to come to get creative with their crazy outfits!
Each week, the unit's come together on Friday to present skits, awards, and plays! This is when campers and staff present their talents to the entire camp. We encourage all campers to take the stage and shine! Parents, guardians and family members are always invited to come and watch.

Fishing with an official Evergreen fishing pole!
Fishing is a great way to appreciate the great outdoors. An optional fishing derby is offered to Unit 2 and Unit 3 during the first week of every session. Campers who wish to participate in the fishing derby may bring in their own gear the morning of the event. Gear will be stored with the pond specialist separately from the campers daily camp bag. All gear should be clearly labeled with the campers name and tent number. Campers who do not have their own gear will be given the opportunity to make their own fishing rods and dig for worms.
Optional canoe trips are offered for Unit 2 and Unit 3 the second week of each session. Campers spend the afternoon exploring many waterways in the surrounding area. Campers who wish to participate on the canoe trip must come to Canoe Club training which will be offered during free choice earlier in the week. It is during this time that campers will learn proper canoe safety and paddling techniques. Please note only deep end swimmers will be allowed to go on the canoe trips.

One of our legendary campfires!
For many campers, Late Nights are the highlight of their time at Evergreen. What could be more fun then spending the evening at camp (and bonus, parents get a night out!)? Late nights are held the second week of each session for unit's 2 and 3. Unit's 1 and 2 have their very own special “mini” late night that occurs week 5. This allows our younger campers to have the late night experience, but it ends a little bit earlier than the others.
Each Late Night is unique and includes a snack after flag pole, fun activities, a delicious dinner, and of course, one our legendary camp fires. Permission slips will be sent out the week before the scheduled event with all the details. Please note that an additional fee applies.
Extended Summer occurs week 9. It is the only time we allow an one week session. Campers who wish to attend extended summer for only one week must have already finished 1st grade. For younger campers in Pre K and K, they must have already attended at least 4 weeks of camp in order to attend extended summer.
During this special week of camp we spend the week working together to build a village deep in the Evergreen Woods. We top off the week with one of our favorite traditions; the Village Camp out! Please note that the camp out ends on Saturday morning of week 9. For more information, check out our Extended Summer page.
