Evening activities are a fundamental aspect of Camp Weequahic. We plan a special and unique activity every night for each age division. Our activities are more than just board games and movies; they are creatively organized events that we spend all year planning. The campers anticipate their activities eagerly; each day they run excitedly to the bulletin board to see what their bunk will be doing that night. After talking with some of our campers, we have compiled a list of the top 5 favorite EA’s.
1) The Miss Weequahic Pageant: Miss Weequahic is many campers’ favorite EA. The girls’ bunks have the opportunity to choose a male counselor to enter into the Miss Weequahic Pageant. The girls then spend a few hours preparing their victims’ hair, makeup, and talent for the big show. The boys are always good sports and put on a fantastic show for the audience.
2) MTV Night: Each bunk choreographs a dance to a chosen song for MTV Night. Some bunks have detailed choreographed routines while others prefer improvising on stage. Either way, the dances are always a great hit with the audience and everyone has an amazing time.
3) Chopped Challenge: For Chopped Challenge, our Top Chef kitchen is opened up to our campers for the evening. Each participating bunk is given a few selected ingredients and supplies. Within the time limit, each bunk scrambles to create a masterpiece. The campers are judged on taste, creativity, presentation, and teamwork. Our creative campers always wow the judges with their unique dishes.
4) Girls Night Out: No boys are allowed while the girls enjoy Henna tattoos and hot fudge sundaes. The girls love chatting with their friends and relaxing while they eat the tasty treats. With our detailed stencils and experienced arts and crafts instructor, each tattoo is an intricate work of art.
5) Pizza and Poker: Not to be left out, the boys have created their own evening activity, Pizza and Poker. The boys make miniature pizzas that they enjoy eating while playing an exciting round of poker.
