School Year Trips

Campers at the beach splashing

Sequoia is excited to be offering weekend adventures for the 2022-2023 season for campers. Depending on local transmission rates, our participants may be required to take a rapid test at the beginning of the trip to ensure our group is Covid negative. We have seven trips scheduled for this year.

Our Programs

Sequoia is excited to once again be able to host our weekend trips during the off season to destinations in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware. A camp registered nurse, Director Brian Lux and favorite staff from our summer programs will supervise each of these trips with a 2:5 staffing ratio. These excursions are designed to be social opportunities for participants in a fun and supportive environment. Many families use these trips as a means to reconnect with summer friends or to bring a new friend into the Camp Sequoia community. Our campers will have the opportunity to engage with some incredible destinations and dynamic staff who have been trained to help children work on building social skills and frustration tolerance experientially. For the 2022-2023 off season, we will be holding trips based on CDC information and the local guidelines of areas we typically attend. We will be asking that all participants to be tested at the start of the trip to ensure the safety of our population.

Programs generally run from 9 am Saturday until 5 pm Sunday evening (specific pick up times will be provided upon registration). Optional Friday night hotel accommodations at our points of departure and supervision are available. With the exception of Resort Destinations (such as Kalahari) hotels are typically Hyatt properties with two campers per room with staff in connecting, adjoining or proximal rooms.

Our family loves the weekend adventures. They are great for our son. Brian and his team always have great destinations and know how to relate to kids in a way that they appreciate.HollyParent
