While at Crane Lake Camp, campers participate in a wide variety of athletic, recreational and creative activities. All of our activities seek to strike a balance between skill development and personal enjoyment, and constant effort is made to meet the needs and wants of the campers. Campers travel throughout the day with their bunk group on a preset schedule, occasionally mixing with other bunks. All campers also get to choose one chug, elective, during the week, and campers 8th grade and up choose a second more intensive elective period called chugensive. This provides our campers with the opportunity to try something new, or pursue what they are passionate about.
