Visiting Day

Highlights of Visiting Day

visiting-dayInstructional periods are designed to show parents what a typical day is like for a Matoaka camper. Each bunk is given a schedule, which is posted inside a bunk door. Parents accompany their daughters to their activities so that the girls can show off their accomplishments. Of course, parents are always welcome to visit the special attractions throughout the day.
