7:30am to 12:30pm
Wake up in a rustic cabin surrounded by nine of your new best friends.
Counselors gently encourage everyone to get ready for breakfast, where flannel pajama pants and T-shirts are perfectly acceptable. When everyone is ready, step outside into fresh mountain air and beautiful blue California skies. Make your way toward the dining hall but watch out – you might get caught up in a water balloon and shaving cream fight on the way! Campers arrive at the dining hall and sit together with their cabin mates. The counselors pass around an iPod Touch and show you how to pick your own elective activities for later that day. There are so many cool options it’s hard to choose but go right ahead – it’s your camp!
The staff of each of our 29 “specialties” take their group of excited campers to their program locations, where they spend the morning learning, exploring and living out their fantasy. Rockstar goes to the recording studio, Motorsports goes to the dirt tracks, Culinary goes to a teaching kitchen, Hollywood stunts goes to Stunt Mountain…every specialty has a place. Each specialty has a director who is an expert in that specialty area. They’ve developed a full week of fun programming to take each camper to the next level, whether they are already experienced or absolute beginners.
12:30pm to 6:00pm
A healthy lunch, then the 3 electives your camper chooses!
Campers reconnect with the members of their cabins and counselors at lunch. If anyone has a birthday, expect a custom-made cake and the whole camp singing Happy Birthday to you! Last-minute adjustments to afternoon schedules are made if anyone has changed their mind about the electives picked at breakfast, and then the fun continues! Head out to the activities you chose for the day. Every camper is empowered to make their own choices, allowing you to create and experience your ideal summer camp.
6:00pm to 11:00pm
The sun may be setting, but the fun continues!
Have we mentioned that meals are one big party? Your counselors will get you dancing and singing at dinner, and you’ll learn all of the Pali traditions. Then, still buzzing from an incredible day, everyone at camp gets together after dinner for the night’s evening activity.
Evening activities give you the opportunity to go all-out in a gameshow, cheer on your new friends at the Rockstar concert, dress up for the themed dance and experience many other fun events and surprises we have planned. The last night of camp culminates in the very special Pali Showcase, where campers from different specialties show-off what they’ve learned, and everyone watches the video of their week. Afterward, head back to your cabin for just a little more laughter, bonding, and swapping stories with your friends and counselors before falling asleep.
