Add-on Specialties For Resident Camp

AOS = Add On Specialties 

AOS’s are available for the 1 week overnight sessions (Not available for our Mag 7 & 8 Sessions). They are an additional cost and are NOT required. If not signed up for one the camper will choose their morning activities the Sunday they arrive.

Please choose only 1 AOS as they take place at the same time.

2 hours of skill-focused instruction each morning as the general camp population participates in 2 separate specialties during the same period of time. These programs are not made available to the general camp population during the morning activity period.
Add On Specialties are led by qualified PLYC instructors & coaches.

Add On Specialties have age requirements for participation
The age requirements for AOS are set to allow for greater instruction of the small groups and individuals registered for the specialties.

Add On Specialties have limited space available.
Each AOS has capacities set for successful small group and individual instruction. For example, sailing is a program that will have a small capacity due to the number of sailboats in the PLYC fleet. Capacities are set to ensure successful instruction.

Add On Specialty Low Enrollment/Cancellation Policy
In order for an AOS to be held, there is a minimum enrollment requirement, specific to each activity. If an AOS must be canceled due to low enrollment, the enrolled participants will be notified. AOS charges will be refunded due to cancellation; however, the general camp registration fee will remain with the understanding that the camper will attend the session.
