Senior and Tween campers can extend the fun with an overnight Banner experience. Optional overnights provide after-camp excitement with friends and Banner staff and are an awesome way to enjoy even more time to play at camp. Banner overnights include swimming, special games, activities and a campfire. Campers who choose to stay for overnighters will enjoy a special snack, pizza dinner and breakfast the next morning. All campers sleep on soft padded mattresses in Banner’s air conditioned indoor multi-purpose rooms. Banner Leadership Team members and counselors provide continuous supervision and care throughout the event.
