DAILY ACTIVITIES

Sports

Crafts

Each of the four days the campers have an arts and craft session where they can let their artistic talents flourish. Campers will be lead by an Arts Leader.

 

Drama/Dance

The artistic and creative side of the campers is given an outlet in daily drama / dance workshops which include improvisation activities and a structured rehearsal for a skit. No lines or scrip to learn – just lots of fun!

SPIRITUALITY

Anchor Camp seeks to foster virtues in young girls in an atmosphere of fun. The Camp allows the girls to realize that having fun is a natural part of living a virtuous life.

 

Anchor Camp has been inspired by the writings of St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei. Brief talks on virtue and character development will be incorporated into each day’s activities. Daily Mass and Rosary will be available for those who wish.
