JUNIOR DIVISION PROGRAM

SPECIAL PROGRAM FOR JUNIORS
Campers who are entering 1st through 4th grade are placed in Camp Cayuga’s Junior Division. Our Junior Division Activity Program is carefully designed with sensitivity to the needs and interests of these youngsters. Close supervision, a noncompetitive atmosphere, a diversified activity schedule, caring and supportive counselors, patient and thorough instruction, and mature Division Director guidance are just some of the special features of Cayuga’s Junior Division Program.

ACTIVITY SCHEDULE FOR JUNIORS
Each Junior cabin is provided with its own weekly activity schedule, which is geared to the age and gender of the cabin. The schedule is different each day of the week! Juniors travel together as a “cabin group” to activities under the direct supervision of their counselor. Traveling in cabin groups not only strengthens cabin camaraderie but also ensures close supervision throughout the day. The typical daily schedule for Junior cabins includes 1 period of American Red Cross swim instruction, 1 period of recreational swim, and 5 other periods comprised of a variety of creative arts programs, land activities, and water sports.

“STRUCTURED” ACTIVITIES
About one-half of the daily activity periods are “structured”. This means one activity is offered during the period and the entire cabin group attends and participates in the assigned activity. (“Structured” periods include activities like swim instruction and recreational swim.) The remaining activity periods are “free-choice”.

“FREE CHOICE” ACTIVITIES
Each free-choice period offers up to 6 different activities from which the camper makes his/her selection. All of the activities offered during the “free-choice” period are located within close proximity of one another. This allows the cabin counselor to be within eyesight of his/her campers. For example, “Field Sports” is a free choice period that offers 6 different activities including kickball, t-ball, softball, soccer, field hockey, and ultimate frisbee. All of these activities take place on our athletic field. Whether the camper selects kickball or soccer, he/she will always be within close proximity of his/her counselor and cabin mates. (Incidentally in this example, other Junior cabins are scheduled “Field Sports” at the same time period, so we have plenty of campers to form a number of different teams.) Activity flexibility and individual choice is introduced in the Junior Program through these “free-choice” periods (without compromising supervision)!

DAILY INSTRUCTION
The “cabin-group” activity schedule in the Junior Division Program lends itself to a safe gradual progression in each activity. Instruction is patient and thorough with due regard for both safety and enjoyment. Juniors typically receive instruction during the first-half of each activity period, and have recreational time during the remaining portion.

JUNIOR DIVISION STAFF
Since our beginning we’ve given personal care and attention to our Juniors. We assign at least 2 counselors to each Junior Division cabin. These staff members have been carefully screened and selected for their ability to provide warm mature guidance. They have demonstrated to us through their previous childcare experience the necessary talents required to be a caring and patient counselor. In addition, all counselors attend training sessions and are re-evaluated for appropriate cabin placement during our one-week long staff orientation program.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH JUNIORS
We’re so confident in our Junior Program, we guarantee it! Our First-Time Camper Guarantee promises a fun and positive camp experience. That is, if your first-time camper departs Cayuga for any reason prior to the end of his/her session, Cayuga will refund your tuition for the days your child missed camp. And that’s a promise! (Please refer to the enrollment application for more details.)

JUNIOR CAMPUS

JUNIOR CAMPUS
Cayuga's natural landscape divides 350 acres into two separate campuses on the same estate. This is a unique feature that distinguishes Cayuga from other traditional summer camps! Each campus is located on opposite sides of our lake and operates self-sufficiently with its own Dining Hall, Gymnasium, Creative Arts Center, Swimming Pool, Activity Sites, and Infirmary. With two separate campuses, we can provide two separate programs that are geared to the different age groups on each campus.

The camper population on Junior Campus is approximately 120 girls and 120 boys. Campers entering 1st grade through 8th grade, who are 13 years old and younger, reside on Junior Campus. Campers entering 8th grade who are 13 years old before camp have the option to reside on Teen Campus.

The Junior Campus Program is geared to the interests of this particular age group. The daily activity offerings, evening programs, and special events focus solely on these interests, which are different from those on Teen Campus. "Having our own campus without the big kids" is the popular answer given by our campers when asked, "What do you like best about Junior Campus?"


JUST THE RIGHT SIZE
Rather than operating one large camp for all campers (like most summer camps), Cayuga operates two smaller campuses: one campus for our youngsters and the other for our teens. On each campus you'll find the camper population to be just the right size! We're large enough to provide a challenging and varied activity program that caters to each and every age group. At the same time, we're small enough to allow our entire staff to know your child personally. We believe our small camper population on each campus maintains the family atmosphere that characterizes Camp Cayuga.

TEEN CAMPUS

Cayuga's natural landscape divides 350 acres into two separate campuses on the same estate. This is a unique feature that distinguishes Cayuga from other traditional summer camps! Each campus is located on opposite sides of our lake and operates self-sufficiently with its own Dining Hall, Gymnasium, Creative Arts Center, Swimming Pool, Activity Sites, and Infirmary. With two separate campuses, we can provide two separate programs that are geared to the different age groups on each campus.


ELIGIBILITY & DIVERSE POPULATION

Teen Campus is reserved exclusively for teens! Teenagers entering 8th to 11th grade who are 13 years of age or older (before camp) reside on Teen Campus, which houses approximately 75 girls & 75 boys. It's a small friendly community where everyone knows one another. The Teen Campus Program affords you the best opportunity to learn and have fun with your peers! This summer, several teenagers will travel from across the Unites States and Europe to participate in Cayuga's Teen Program! Note: Campers entering 8th grade who are 13 years old (before camp) have the option to reside on Junior Campus.


SPECIAL TEEN PRIVILEGES

You'll also receive some extra special privileges, which are available only to campers residing on Teen Campus! Some of these privileges include: wake-up an hour later than Junior Campus every morning; coed "open seating" during the lunch meal (you don't have to sit with your cabin counselor - you can sit with whomever you wish!); voluntary competitive sports; cabin leagues; late-night pool parties; more day trips off-camp; more coed activities during the day; fun evening activities geared exclusively for Teens; and a later curfew with "lights-out" at 11:00pm. These special privileges are for Teens only!


DOWN-TO-EARTH ATMOSPHERE

The camper population on Teen Campus is just right! It's large enough to provide a challenging and varied program, and at the same time, it's small enough to allow our entire staff to know you personally. We find that our teenage enrollment maintains the family atmosphere which characterizes Camp Cayuga. It's a down-to-earth friendly atmosphere where we emphasize being yourself and de-emphasizing fashion. The camper population includes a healthy mixture of new and returning campers too! In fact, about 40% of our teenagers on Teen Campus are NEW to Camp Cayuga. This is one reason why it's easy for new campers to adjust to Teen Campus and make new friends! Each summer we graduate 40% of our teen population. This percentage allows us to accept many new campers into our Teen Program who will be attending Camp Cayuga for the first time.


CABIN CAMARADERIE

The Teen Campus Program encourages active participation in all activities, spirit, and cabin camaraderie. Our "cabin point system" rewards your cabin group for your participation and individual achievements. There are many different ways to earn points for your cabin group - whether performing in the Talent Show or dressing up for the Hippie Dance, you're not only having fun, but also earning points for your cabin group! In other words, the more fun you have, the more cabin points you'll earn!


DAILY ACTIVITY PROGRAM

Your day is action-packed with over 60 fun-filled activities and exciting special events. On Teen Campus you can specialize in any activity program! Each day after breakfast, you design your own schedule by selecting your favorite activities. Your program is 100% "free choice". If you enjoy noncompetitive activities, you can select electives like: horseback riding, ceramics, pottery, flying trapeze, radio broadcasting, extreme sport jumping (bungee trampoline), performing arts, weight training, aerobics, mounting biking, dance, creative arts, camp newspaper, video game room, etc. If you prefer team or individual sports, you can select activities like: flag football, water polo, basketball, softball, roller hockey, soccer, lacrosse, beach volleyball, tennis, gymnastics, riflery, skateboarding, paintball, etc. You can select any activity as often as you like or never! And whichever activity you select, you're guaranteed to be participating with teens only! That's one of the reasons why Teen Campus is so popular with teenagers.


SUPERVISION

Supervision is just as important on Teen Campus as it is on Junior Campus. For this reason, each instructor is provided with an activity roster for each period and is required to take attendance. This insures that you are attending the activities you have selected. Cayuga's Attendance Supervisors are responsible for collecting attendance rosters from each activity instructor at the beginning of each period. You are strongly encouraged to participate! While the daily activities are in progress, Cayuga's Program Staff are readily available to assist you with your program questions. The Program Staff have copies of all rosters for each activity for each period of the day. Revisions to rosters are made if deemed necessary and instructors are promptly notified if the revision affects their activity rosters.
