Rookie Day provides an opportunity for campers to experience the excitement of a summer at Lokanda, and gives parents a chance to see how Lokanda can help your child be more independent, make new friends and build self-confidence. Most of all, Lokanda's Rookie Camp is a lot of fun! It's a great way to introduce Lokanda to campers and parents while raising the comfort level about going away to camp.
Who can attend?
Rookie Day is for children who are entering 2nd through 5th grade. It is a one-day program where prospective campers get to experience the activities, spirit, excitement and so much of the fun that Lokanda has to offer!
When does it start?
We will pick up your child at Woodbury Commons at 8:45 am, where you will say good-bye to your Rookie as they board a coach bus to camp. You get to shop and relax, they get to have a terrific day at Camp Lokanda.
