Amplify Typical Day
7:30am - Wake Up
Wake up in your cozy dorm room surrounded by one or two 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. Campers arrive at the dining hall and sit at a table with all their new friends. The counselors are also dispersed throughout the tables and talk to the girls about the days activities. There are so many cool options it’s hard to choose, but go right ahead - it’s your camp!
8:00am - BREAKFAST - Gluten Free & Dairy Free Options
9:00am to 9:15am - Morning assembly.
Here you'll find out all the details about your day, be entertained by our famous Skit Time Players and play a few games to get our day started.
9:30-12:00pm- Become a journalist, rock star, film maker, photographer and more - we’re off to concentrations!
The staff of each of our “concentrations” take their group of excited campers to their program locations, where they spend the morning learning, exploring and having a blast. Musicians go to the instrument classrooms, Engineers go to the recording studio and so on....every concentration has a place. Each concentration 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.
12:00pm - LUNCH - Gluten Free & Dairy Free Options
Campers reconnect with their friends and counselors at lunch. If anyone has a birthday, expect a custom-made cake and the whole camp singing Happy Birthday to you, including our guest all-female lunch time bands, a highlight of the week! Every day of camp we bring in a new and amazing lunchtime band to play for the girls followed by a fun questions and answer period. Often guest artist stick around and help out for the remainder of the day giving the girls lots of time to get to know them. We're pretty hush..hush about the performers but we can tell you that every summer we get bands and musicians on tour that your girls will know and love. After lunch is over we head out to afternoon activities !
1:15pm to 2:15pm - Workshops.
Our daily workshops are another camper highlight. We bring in workshop leaders from around the globe to teach everything from song writing to film production to screen printing their own shirts to making a music video. Often each concentration is taking a workshop that is unique to what they are focusing on each day.
2:30-4:30pm - We're back in our concentrations
Music track students are in band practice. Film Making students are working on the music video they will produce and more.
4:30-6:00pm - Camp free time.
This is down time for our campers. It's the time when we encourage letter writing home and taking a break. This is often an option for girls who want to get in a swim in our state of the art swimming pool and cool down after a long day of activities. This is also a time when our camp store is open. Girls can purchase camp tee shirts, sweat shirts, Sweat pants, water bottles, stickers, and healthy snacks.
The sun may be setting, but the fun continues!
