Campers believe that the best part of being a campers at Camp Interlaken is having the opportunity to “choose your own adventure.” Campers get to select the activities that they would like to participate in, and each camper receives an individualized schedule that reflects their interests.

During the 5 activity blocks per day, each camper has a required American Red Cross instructional swim period as well as a Cabin Time period where they get back together with their cabin group to go to an assigned activity such as tubing or ropes course. The other three periods a day are selected by the Camper and last for two weeks.
