School Notes:

  • Camp Regis-Applejack is really two camps in one, each meeting the specific interests and needs of a different age group. Applejack is a teen camp for boys and girls ages 13 through 16. In addition to all of the in-camp activities, the teens are given the opportunity for more out-of-camp travel with day trips to such areas as Montreal, Quebec, and Lake George. The oldest teens participate in a week-long teen tour trip that in past years has visited Canada, Cape Cod, and The Maine coast. We also have a Camper-in-Leadership-Training program which provides an opportunity for the older teens to develop skills while working with younger campers or in activity areas, all under careful guidance and instruction.
  • Applejack Teen Camp strives to provide an environment in which teens can feel good about themselves. Campers are given the opportunity, through greater involvement in planning their own daily schedule, to pursue activities which they feel good about and to master a high level of skill in those areas. They are also given a chance to confront challenges and, with the guidance and instruction of our caring staff, gain the tremendous feeling of having met the teen camp experience with success. They also have the opportunity to contribute to the running of our large community, and to thus gain the wonderful feeling of having made an inpact upon the betterment of others' lives.
  • Social life is a very important aspect of the teenage years. Another goal of Applejack Teen Camp is to provide a safe, well-monitored, and non-threatening atmosphere where teenagers can get to know each other, form close friendships, and experience the significant joy of comraderie with one's peers. To this end we recently built a huge, open-air, covered pavilion to serve as the focal point for teen camp gatherings. With a fireplace, and also electricity & lighting, this spot has quickly come to serve as an area for special evening programs as well as for informal socializing.
  • Another important focus of Applejack is to keep our campers active and involved. A full daily schedule keeps our teens busy in all of the areas of camp, and then a special activity program spices up their stay with various out-of-camp trips. For our younger teens, there are day trips to Montreal for an Expo's baseball game or the excitement of a jet boat ride through the Lachine Rapids, topped off by dinner and a visit to the Old French Quarter. There are also opportunities for white water rafting, amusement park outings or water park visits. We also offer evenings out at the movies, skating rink or bowling alley. For the older teens we offer these same possibilities, with the addition of an evening dinner and dance cruise on Lake George and, in August, a week-long travel trip to areas around either Niagara Falls/Toronto, Quebec, the Maine Coast, or other New England tourist spots. Variety is the spice of life, especially for young adolescents. Although there are quiet times, and times for reflection and just slowing down, we make sure that none of our Applejackers ever have a chance to get bored.
  • Programming is wide open for these campers and they are really involved in everything - tennis, athletics, drama, dance, arts & crafts, gymnastics, nature, overnight camping, swimming, boating, and waterskiing. It is at this age that the campers not only experience all of these activities, but develop strong skills in the areas in which they have the most interest. They can, if they choose to, get involved with our intercamp and intracamp tournaments; participate in extended (more than one night) camping trips - backpacking and canoeing; try out our exciting mountain biking program; expand their acting ability with our special musical productions; and much, much more.
