We have a variety of electives here at Camp Yojoa which contain a wide range of activities that are educational, interactive and lots of fun. Campers choose 2 electives that they will take part in each week; one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
We encourage campers to get their choices in before the start of camp as spaces in each elective are limited. Campers do not need to have any knowledge or experience in the electives that we offer as they are differentiated for different levels and age groups. Our staff are very skilled in their electives and teach in a positive and supportive learning environment. Here are some of the electives available at Camp Yojoa:
In our English elective campers will be taught by trained professionals to make sure they are getting the most from their lessons. These lessons will be tailor made for the campers levels, which will allow for student progression and development.
Here at Camp Yojoa each camper will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports coached by our highly skilled staff. We run activities such as kickball, American football from a typical American camp and also the opportunity to train and learn Gaelic, a typical Irish sport. There will also be camper favourites such as football, basketball and dodgeball that campers can avail of during their stay at camp.
Arts & Crafts
Arts & Crafts
During Arts and Crafts campers will be able to unleash their creative side through many exciting activities. This includes creating tie-dye t-shirts, which they can take home at the end of camp, baking, murals, canvas painting and much more. This activity allows campers to challenge themselves in a completely unique environment.
Campers can be a part of a play that has been written by our very own counsellors. Campers can be on stage acting, singing and dancing or be behind the scenes making sure everything runs smoothly on the night!
We have a strong belief in campers having the chance to explore and enjoy the great outdoors. This fun action-packed activity will allow campers to learn how to build shelters in the wild, make a camp fire, enjoy nature walks and much, much more.
We offer lessons for campers at any level, whether they are a complete beginner or advanced. Campers will work on both technique and their performance abilities. Campers will have the opportunity to perform their dances during the camp talent show. Campers will grow in confidence and their love for dance will grow with it.
This is a hands-on interactive elective that allows campers to become young scientists during their time at camp. Campers will learn to create various experiments which are educational and engaging. Campers will love the chance to explore and get the opportunity to make slime, build volcanoes, make balloon rockets and much more.
Every evening we run all camp activities where everyone takes part, which are unique to camp and provide new experiences for our campers. These range from Olympics to capture the flag to campers V counsellors, as well as discos and our talent show!
Our evening activities are usually the highlight for our campers as they get to be silly, challenge the counsellors and have lots of fun. We encourage our campers to give everything a go and throw themselves into all that camp has to offer!
