A Day in the Life at ISTC


What do campers do during the day? Can you send me a daily schedule? Look no further, as we breakdown a day in the life at ISTC.

Each day at ISTC is an upbeat, outdoor experience filled with meals, sports sessions, and recreation times.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included everyday at 8:00am, 12:00pm, and 5:00pm respectively. Our kitchen team provides a wholesome menu at every meal to make sure campers have the fuel to play sports all day long. We are entirely nut-free and cater to a variety of dietary needs, including Celiac. Cabins and counselors sit together to build on friendships and avoid any worries about where to sit.

Sports Sessions: Every camper is a part of an All-Sports team, which is co-ed and led by two of our coaching staff. With three sessions each day and each centered on a different activity, campers are constantly trying new things and discovering interests. They could be anything from more traditional sports such as soccer, lacrosse, or basketball to more adventure sports including rock climbing, jet skiing, and mountain biking. For a more inclusive look at the All-Sports program, please check out our newest camp video.

Recreation Times: With structured sports sessions, it is important for us to also offer periods during the day for free choice and exploration. Our recreation times, or rec time for short, provide that experience. All our main activities open up in the afternoon for campers to pick and choose what they would like to do and whom they would do it with. The canteen opens up as well, which is the one stop shop for ISTC clothing, merchandise, and snacks. All of our counselors are out and about with their campers or stationed at an activity to ensure everyone is safe and having a good time. Rec times take place from 1:00-3:00pm and again from 8:30-10:00pm.
