Ahoy, Matey! The Pirates are coming to Camp Mason!

During Session 3, we will set sail on a swashbuckling adventure as our summer camp celebrates a theme day dedicated to the scurvy dogs of the seven seas – Pirates! The campers will have the opportunity to get dressed in their best pirate gear, from eye patches to bandanas, and are ready to take on the battles of the day (The Battle of the Seas and The Battle of the Lands).

We’ve got scavenger hunts, relay races, and even a “build-a-boat” activity, to see who sinks and who floats. And of course, no pirate day would be complete without a treasure chest filled with gold coins!

But it’s not just about the gold (although, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good treasure hunt). The real treasure are the friendships and memories that we’re making on this theme day. The campers and counselors will have a blast working together in their teams to complete challenges and experience all the twists and turns the day has to offer. We even have a fun shipwrecked-themed lunch planned!

As the day comes to a close, we’ll gather at the Upper Athletic Field to fight in The Final Pirate Battle, against The Kraken; a great beast controlled by the evil Pirate, Captain Skylord. We’re all counting down the days until our Pirate Theme Day, so hoist the Camp Mason colors, me hearties, and let’s set sail for another amazing summer camp adventure!
