Candleboat Ceremony 2023

August 17, 2023 at 7:00 PM

Campers, families, and alumni are invited to join us as guests for our annual Candleboat Ceremony, the final closing campfire of the summer! We begin in the athletics field for cheers, awards, and speeches. Paddle recipients will be asked to take the field during the paddle award portion of the ceremony. Once darkness falls, we will adjourn to the pond for the candleboat portion, where we will close the summer season for overnight camp with candles and songs.  

Day Campers and their families are also invited to join us as guests. All campers must be accompanied by an adult.


For the safety of all of our children at camp, guests will be asked to proceed straight to the seats in the Main Athletic Field. Guests are permitted only in designated areas of camp - parking areas, guest bathrooms, Upper Pavilion, Main Athletic Field, Pond, and Camp Store.  

Other Details:

  • The ceremony will begin at 7:30pm, but we ask that guests arrive between 7 & 7:30pm.
  • Session D campers may be signed out Thursday night from the upper pavilion after the ceremony by their families. IDs will be checked.
  • Guest bathrooms are located on the Main House, near the main parking lot and will be labeled.
  • Following the ceremony, refreshments will be served in the Upper Pavilion and the Camp Store will be open for purchases.
