Upper Camp, Ages 8-14          

The Diamond Ridge Upper Camp provides a unique and innovative program for our older campers, ages 8 through 14. Each camper selects a 'major', either in Athletics, Creative & Performing Arts or Outdoor Adventures. Three one-hour periods each day are devoted to specialty activities within the selected 'major'. As young people mature they begin to acquire specific interests. Our Upper Camp provides the perfect opportunity to further develop those interests and gain new ones! Campers are able to select two activities within their 'major', plus one activity from another 'major', if they elect to do so.  

In addition to a 'major', each camper also selects a 'minor' that is comprised of a 40 minute daily activity period. While a camper’s 'major' remains the same for the entire session, his/her 'minor' is selected on a daily basis. Some popular 'minors' include Pickle Ball, Home Run Derby, BBK, Belay Instruction, Rocketry, Improv, Origami and Tie-Dye T-Shirts.
