No one at camp is made to participate in any activity, but you get out of it what you put into it. However, everyone must be with their group at their assigned location at all times. (i.e. You don’t have to swim, but you have to be at the pool watching everyone swim. You don’t have play the recreation games, but you do have to be on the recreation field encouraging your team.)
