Night Program

Campers look forward to different activities each evening. At the conclusion of the evening program campers and their leaders often enjoy visiting new friends in other campsites. All campers return to their own campsites by 10:00 pm.

On Sunday night there is a high energy opening camp fire. This is the time when all campers are introduced to the staff of Mount Allamuchy Scout Reservation (MASR) and Camp COLEY staff and leaders. The MASR staff then performs skits and songs and the camp theme is introduced.

After dinner on Monday night we take site pictures. Each camper receive a picture of their site at the end of the week. Pictures are followed by a water carnival at the waterfront where campers have the opportunity to participate in several different competitions.


Tuesday is a solemn evening of reflection, ceremonies, songs and readings. This is also the time we have a tree dedication program to recognize the hard work of someone who has been a big part of our program. To end the evening on a high note, we have a sing a long that is run by the CITs and Boy Scouts.


On Wednesday, Instead of having dinner in the dining hall, campers cook and eat in their sites. The campers receive help from their leaders, CITs, and Scouts. After dinner the sites travel to the parade field where directions are given for the camp wide games. Each year we have a different camp wide game that allows campers to mingle with other sites. 


Perhaps the most looked forward to night, Thursday night the camp gathers at the volleyball area for a dance. A DJ comes in and our campers dance the night away!


On Friday night we hold our closing ceremony. We start the evening off with a serious camp fire that stems from the Camp Fire traditions. A CIT is chosen by his or her peers and leaders to run the ceremony. Campers from sixth grade and up are able to participate in this portion of the night. After the serious camp fire we have a fun camp fire when each site performs a skit or song that they worked on during the week. Awards are given out at this time. It is a great ending to a wonderful week!
