Senior Camp Electives

Banner’s 2nd and 3rd grade Elective Program takes the Banner experience to a whole new level allowing campers to personalize their summer.

The program provides growing campers a sports camp or specialty camp experience AND all the best of Banner! Campers can design their own elective schedule each week to specialize in the activities they like most. The program is created to provide meaningful experiences and significant instruction in sports, arts, and adventure.
Electives are balanced with daily group activities that provide opportunities for group bonding so campers continue to experience all the fun and friendship that is the hallmark of the Banner tradition. Campers enjoy daily instructional and recreational swim, plus trips to the Banner lake.
  • Campers select two electives per week to be included in their daily schedule.
  • Each elective meets for one hour each day for four days in a row creating maximum opportunities for skill-building growth.
  • Sports league for campers wanting more competition – scores and standings will be kept and posted throughout the summer for sports league teams.
