[tabs class=”optionalclass”][tab title=”Venues” active=”active”]All destinations and activities are planned exclusively for Voyagers. Each summer, we embark on daily adventures that are unlike any other Camps ‘R’ Us program.
Last summer’s trips included: Fun Fuzion, The Hub, Aladdin on Broadway, Dorney Park, Jones Beach, Camelbeach, a New York Liberty Basketball Game, the Jersey Shore, and a New York Yankees Baseball Game.[/tab]
[tab title=”Grouping”]Voyagers are unique from other campers at Camps ‘R’ Us. They travel to trip venues apart from all other campers, and in essence, are like their own traveling campus. It is because of this exclusivity that Voyagers develop the deepest bonds of friendship and camaraderie throughout the summer.
Furthermore, the Voyagers are the only camper division that unites all of our campuses as one. Campers have the opportunity to interact with others who, under any other circumstance, would never have met.
Each summer, our Voyagers community becomes a family, united by their common interests and by the amazing adventures that they experience together.[/tab]
[tab title=”Travel”]The “ride” is a time for anticipation, bonding, and sharing. Since each day is unique, our staff discusses the activity of the day in advance so that the campers are familiar with plans for the destination. This helps us to move quickly through ticketing, lineup and buddies, so we can quickly begin with the making of memories.
For nearby destinations, Voyagers travel in air-conditioned buses equipped with CD/MP3 equipped sound systems. For more distant venues, Voyagers travel aboard an air-conditioned, video and bathroom equipped luxury tour bus.
Buses are provided by well-respected transportation companies, including professional drivers with verified safety records.[/tab]
[tab title=”Overnights”]The majority of trips taken by the Voyagers are day trips, with buses returning home by the end of the camp day. There are also overnight trips planned, in which campers spend the night at the venue. During overnight trips, the Voyagers travel with additional staff, and stay in deluxe accommodations.
Last summer’s overnight trips included: Club Getaway and Hersheypark[/tab]
[tab title=”Add-ons”]The Voyagers program operates for the first four weeks of the summer camp season. At the conclusion of the program, campers (and their parents) have the option to continue their summer for up to an additional 4 weeks as a trainee in our popular C2 Program. Additional weeks are priced are $100.00 per week.[/tab][/tabs]
