A Day in the Life at Long Lake Camp: Emma's Performing Arts Adventure

Dawn peeks through the curtains at Long Lake Camp, and by 7:30 AM, the symphony of nature gently awakens our campers. Emma, a vivacious 13-year-old with a passion for the spotlight, is one of them. For her, every day is a new canvas, waiting to be painted with the melodies of music, the grace of dance, and the thrill of watersports.

As Emma joins her friends for a wholesome breakfast at 8:00 AM, the dining hall buzzes with anticipation. It’s not just the start of a new day but the beginning of another adventure in a world where creativity has no ceiling.

After they've fueled up, Emma and her camp comrades gather for the Morning Meeting at 9:00 AM. Here, they're briefed on the day's palette of possibilities. Camp is all about choice, and Emma's day-to-day masterpiece of activities reflects just that.

  • Act One: The Stage Awaits

From 9:15 AM, she's immersed in rehearsals for 'Les Miserables,' her voice joining the chorus that echoes through the pines. In harmony with her peers, Emma’s mornings are a deep dive into character and camaraderie.

  • Intermission: Recharging Creativity

When the clock strikes 12:15 PM, it's time for a midday interlude. Emma and her friends refuel with lunch and enjoy a restful hour, where laughter and stories weave together as they relax and unwind.

  • Act Two: Fine-Tuning the Inner Virtuoso

The afternoon brings a crescendo of personalized activities. At 1:45 PM, a quick meeting reminds Emma of her afternoon options, crystallizing her plans. By 2:00 PM, she's in a private vocal session, her voice soaring as she learns "Adele's Someone Like You" – a challenge she relishes.


  • The Aquatic Interlude

By 3:00 PM, Emma's stage becomes the glistening lake as she perfects her waterskiing, the thrill of the water refreshing her spirit and energizing her for the acts to come.

Post snack time at 4:00 PM, Emma's dedication to dance takes center stage. Two consecutive hours of dance show rehearsal from 4:15 PM mold her movements into expressions of pure joy and artistry.

  • Dusk: The Curtain Falls on Daytime

With the day’s rehearsals concluded and a hearty dinner savored by 7:00 PM, Emma’s evening is a tapestry of relaxation and entertainment. It’s time for the canteen, evening cruises, or simply enjoying the tranquility of the lake on the swings.

  • Twilight: The Campfire Glow

As stars sprinkle the sky, Long Lake comes alive with the glow of bonfires and a cornucopia of performances – from rock concerts to chamber music, from movie nights to showcase evenings. Emma’s days culminate in a celebration of community and the arts.

  • Finale: A Goodnight's Dream

By 9:30 PM, Emma returns to the comfort of her bunk, her heart full of the day's escapades. As the lights dim at 10:00 PM, she drifts off to sleep, already dreaming of tomorrow’s adventures.

At Long Lake Camp, we recognize that each camper, like Emma, is the author of their own unique story.
