Special Events

Every morning of every summer camp day, campers check their Special Event Calendar and see what exciting fun awaits them at Cedarbrook!


Special Events, at Cedarbrook, is a continual flow of positive energy, enthusiasm and good will that permeates throughout our camp community. Our Special Events infuse a unique, unpredictable feeling of excitement and energy to every camp day- simulating the spirit of Sleep away Camp, while being able to go home at the end of the day! The Special Events Calendar features a fantastic mix of original and traditional programming including theme days, after-camp parties, trips, inter-camp events, and all-camp competitions!

Special Events at Cedarbrook start as soon as our campers arrive on campus in the morning and end just before departing the camp each day.



Morning Assemblies


Get ready for the famous Cedarbrook Morning Assembly where anything can happen and it usually does. The entire camp community assembles in the Amphitheater. Whether it’s one of our crazy staff challenges or joining in an all-camp dance off. It's the best way to start our day!



Afternoon Assemblies


Campers look forward to the end of the day at a chance to claim their Cedarbrook Spirit Prize during afternoon assembly. Throughout the day, Campers are awarded raffle tickets from counselors and instructors for participation, great behavior, and exemplifying the Cedarbrook camp spirit. Ticket winners can choose from an array of prizes.  The prize station promotes positive energy, enthusiasm, and good behavior amongst the campers.  Every camper has a chance at winning something!
