What is a platoon?

Campers are assigned to platoons when they arrive at camp. These are essentially groups where campers have yet another opportunity to make new friends. The main activities that campers do in platoons are platoonal duties / morning chores and evening games. Platoonal duties include: table setting, cleaning grounds, cleaning the rec hall, cleaning the bathrooms, performing the vespers skit, and participating in flag lowering and raising. It is our camp collectively and we ask that campers help us keep it clean for each other to enjoy. Platoons may not be switched.
