Five Exciting Programs
What many parents don’t realize about Banner is the enormous level of personalization we offer. Depending on the age of your camper, from our very youngest of three to those who may soon become staff members, each program is developed to provide age-appropriate fun. Campers thrive in our exciting structure, and camp grows with them as they grow. With awesome new activities and developmentally sound programming, camp stays fresh and fun year after year.
All campers share the Bannerama, dining hall and swimming pools. Each age group has its own sports and performance facilities, structured activities and dedicated Leadership Team members and counselors. Older campers enjoy choice at Banner, as Seniors and Tweens have multiple opportunities to shape their own camping experience. All campers are grouped by age and gender to maximize their comfort level and create positive experiences. Banner will work to honor friendship requests when establishing camp groups.
