Youth Week Overview
There are two Youth Weeks span that the first two weeks of the Camp UniStar summer season. Campers range in age from entering grades 7 through the summer before their Senior year. The week is often a welcomed time away from the pressures of home and school, to deeply connect with peers, make new friends, work and play, all while building community and lifelong connections.
The mornings include a service project like painting, cleaning, organizing, and landscaping that helps contribute to camp and helps prepare the island for a full summer of fun. Afternoons and evenings provide a lot of freedom and time for campers to choose their own path, with plenty of opportunties for enjoying time on the island: hiking, kayaking, sailing, fishing, swimming, playing ping pong, games and puzzles, reading, or just relaxing on the dock are just a few of the favorites for youth campers and counselors alike.
Similar to Family weeks, Youthweek is steeped in many rich traditions and ritutals. A camp wide dance, an end of week talent show, and camper created slide shows and singalongs are just a few that Youth enjoy participating in year after year
