Typical Day
A Typical Day at a Weekend Retreat
One thing is for sure, no day at Camp Weloki is "typical" and no two weekends of camp ever look exactly the same. On the first night of every weekend we go over the agreements, boundaries and the schedule for that weekend. We make sure everyone has a voice, feels safe to share and get out of a weekend the tools they are wanting to.  Plus create the fun that they want by taking breaks as needed during learning time, going for hikes, and playing. Campers get a lot of choice and free time which can be great learning opportunities.

The schedule looks approximately like the following:

  Friday Night
7:00-7:30 pm Arrive and Check-In
7:30-8:30 pm Icebreakers & Connecting Games

Course room/sharing time– This is the time we all really get to know each other. We create an environment where everyone feels safe enough to get real and talk about issues such as handling cliques and conflicts with friends, dealing with everyday stresses, communicating more effectively with parents, siblings and friends, learning more about who you are and what makes you tick, or problem areas like divorce, loss or transitions to middle school, high school or college. Campers hear other kids their age stories and realize they are not alone or that they had more in common with them than they realized.  This is the part of camp that brings the most honesty, closeness, friendships and community and makes the rest of the activities even more fun.

Evening Time– After course room campers can choose to settle in to bed or stay up and have more fun. At our designated late night area, we play music, card games, make bracelets, stargaze and have plenty of time to relax and connect with peers and staff. Sometimes Dr. Tim will do "Story Time" to help wind the kids down for the night.  Final lights out is typically around eleven, depending on the age of campers during the weekend. It is another way for kids to have fun and to learn to take care of themselves.
