True Life Adventures
Each summer, True Life Adventures (TLAs) are uniquely designed for all levels of experience and interest. In addition to daily activities, each week features a different TLA. TLAs broaden horizons as campers dive deep into themes like Culinary Arts, Rockwall, Songwriting and Music Production, Photography, and more.
Please note: True Life Adventures vary by site.
Special Events and Theme Days
Campers participate in a wide variety of Special Events and theme-related games and activities, including the highly-anticipated Camp Carnival, Ultimate ESF Games and The Oracle Games. Campers will get colorfully creative in weekly Wacky Wednesdays and Fantastic Friday events.
The Oracle: A Time-Honored Tradition
Founded in the tradition of the ancients, the Senior Camp Oracle is a source of wisdom and a guide to the truth. In the true spirit of teamwork and community, the Oracle represents senior campers’ respect, leadership, dedication and effort as they collaborate on different activities all week long. Each morning, Senior Camp’s official Town Council votes for the group who has demonstrated these characteristics as well as good deeds and random acts of kindness. Proudly carrying the Oracle is a Senior Camp group’s greatest responsibility as they are charged with spreading the importance of respect throughout camp.
Senior Town is where Senior Campers begin and end each day. It is the home of Town Meetings each Friday, daily assemblies and various themed events. It is here that the bond of friendships new and old are celebrated as we welcome campers in the morning and wish fond farewells at the end of the day.
The Mark Awards
At the Town Meetings on Fridays, deserving senior campers are awarded with the distinguished Mark Award. The Mark Award is given to campers who were “caught” exemplifying ESF’s Core Values throughout the week. These campers are recognized for guiding younger campers, being an example in integrity, going the extra mile, performing random acts of kindness and being a positive influence. Senior campers can achieve six different Mark awards representing the following values: Respect, Teamwork, Leadership, Dedication, Spirit and Effort.
Ultimate ESF Games
This highly anticipated ESF tradition and week-long competition features various camp wide competitions and events as well as various opportunities for both BLUE and GREEN competitors to earn points for their team. Who will claim victory for their color this camp season?
