There are so many ways to have fun at Camp Lebanon!  Here are just FIVE of the funnest fun things you can do during Free Time every day!

1) Catch a Turtle


Turtle Bay is named after all of the turtles that live there, and if you pay close attention and aren’t afraid to get a little wet, you might just be able to find and catch one.  Don’t worry – they all go back in the water – the thrill is in the hunt!  After you catch one, find the Camp Photographer and get a picture with the little guy before you bring him back home.  Also, be sure to bring your counselor or another staff member with you when you go out in a boat, or make sure that you and your boating buddy have both passed our Swim Test!

2) Play on the Water Mat


Camp Lebanon has TWO water mats – one in the shallow end and one out in the deep end.  Both of them are crazy amounts of fun!  See how long you can stay standing, or who can be the king of the water mat!  Splashing is encouraged!

3) Try Riding Upside-Down on the Screamin’ Eagle Zipline!

You get two rides on the Zipline, so make them count!  If you are 10 years old you can ride the Zipline (prepay when you register, or sign up when you get to Camp!), and it’s definitely an experience you don’t want to miss!  If you try really hard, you can swing your legs up and ride upside-down most of the way!  Hands free and screamin’ loud, because that’s the funnest fun way to ride the Screamin’ Eagle Zipline!

4) Go Paddle-Boating!


All of the boats at Camp are fun, and we have canoes, kayaks, sailboats, pontoons, AND paddle boats!  No matter which one you choose, make sure you bring a buddy (and that both of you have passed your Swim Test) and are wearing life jackets!  Then, Cedar Lake is yours to explore!

5) Get a Snack at the Canteen!


We saved the best for last.  Free Time at Camp Lebanon wouldn’t be quite right without a little salty or sweet snack!  Our Canteen is stocked full of all kinds of candy, chocolate, pop, and chips.  Sometimes, there is even popcorn.  Just go up to the window with your cabin name on it and tell them your name and cabin!  If you brought spending money to Camp, turn it into a Canteen Card that you can use throughout the week in all of your purchases (including the Trading Post and Craft Room).  We also sell Camp Lebanon water bottles with the summer theme design!  Make sure to get yours, and you’ll get your first fill FREE!


Of course, there are plenty of other ways to spend your time at Camp Lebanon during Free Time – these are just a few of the fun things you can do!  As always, all of these things are better with a buddy, and your counselor would LOVE to spend the day with you as you explore Camp!
