Life at Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer is relaxed and unhurried. Clocks are almost non-existent. Bugles call campers to meals, and Taps calls campers to bed.
Under the guidance of counselors, campers decide their activities for the day. The weather has a hand in that as well. Calmer winds in the morning mean the younger campers are on Sea activities before lunch and older campers in the afternoon.
Shoes are optional for most of the time, and swimsuits are worn almost all day. Friendships are formed during cabin time, meals and on the water and land activities.
But don't let the relaxed unhurried atmosphere fool you. Campers are learning skills and earning ranks every day on activities. Campers are also learning about being a good sport, independence and the value of good decision making.
