What is Caps Camp?  

    Caps Camp is a weekend retreat open to ALL Broughton students who want to have fun, make  new friends, learn about themselves and others and  forge a stronger connection to our school. Activities  include skits, games and boundary breaking conversations, among others. One goal of Caps  Camp is for students to meet and get to know  others who they may not normally cross paths with during a typical school day. Our teacher advisers and student leadership staff are working hard to plan this year's activities and are looking forward to a unique, fun weekend.  

    When is it?  

    Caps Camp starts after school on Friday, Sept. 22nd and runs until noon on Sunday, Sept. 24th at Camp Kanata in Wake Forest. This weekend is the open date for all fall athletics.  

    How much does it cost?  

    It costs $200, which includes transportation to and  from Camp Kanata, overnight accommodations at  Camp Kanata for two nights, meals, and a T shirt. We don’t want money to be the reason people might not go Caps Camp; therefore, there are some scholarships available.  

    If I go to Caps Camp, do I have to be there for the entire weekend?  

    YES! Students must commit to the entire weekend to attend.

    Do we really camp out?  

    No! While Camp Kanata sits among trees and fields  on rolling hills, we do not really camp out. Students  sleep indoors on bunk beds and most cabins include their own bathrooms and shower facilities. Some cabins use a bath house a few feet from their cabin. Meals are served in the Camp Kanata dining hall. 

    What kind of activities take place?  

    Students will be divided into large and small groups  and engage in skits, a variety of team-building  games, arts and crafts activities, boundary breaking conversations, dance parties and a campfire with smores.  

    How do students apply to go ?  

    At the start of the 2023-2024 school year, students will have access to an online google form application. The online form will be available for the  first few weeks of school. Hard copies of a parent permission form, a payment form and a medication  form (if necessary) will also be required. These  forms may be printed out or picked up outside of  room 153. If more students apply than the 132 we can accommodate, a lottery process will be used to finalize the list of campers.
