There are seven activity periods during the day. Campers choose four activities to be involved in each day, over the course of the session. Some activities offer instruction to hone and improve upon skills, while others are taken just for enjoyment. Some campers spend their time on the waterfront, swimming, water-skiing, and using the boats or just talking to their friends. Others choose to be in the lodge playing pool and Ping-Pong®. Many enjoy playing tennis or having a pick-up game of basketball. Campers can also use free time to rest in their cabins or email home.
Chop Point offers a variety of options during each activity period, including: sailing, volleyball, aerobics, arts and crafts, windsurfing, basketball, jogging and weights, photography, swimming, tennis, ultimate Frisbee®, drama, kayaking, soccer, field sports, campcraft, canoeing, waterskiing, ESL, and line dancing.
Chop Point Summer Camp has a wide range of waterfront equipment for camper’s use, including: 10 canoes, 6 Sunfish, a daysailor, 10 sea kayaks, 4 windsurfers, a 17-ft Boston Whaler (used primarily for water-skiing), and a 23-ft Proline (used for visiting islands and harbors on the and for small fishing trips).
