What is a typical schedule like?
Students arrive between 8-10 am on Monday
Each student recieves 4 lessons daily.
Students depart between noon - 4 pm on Friday
On Friday, parents are invited to ride in the boat and watch their child's last lesson of the week. They are also invited to ask any questions they have including about equipment, boat speed, technique, the next lessons, etc.
When students are not taking their lesson, they participate in a variety of activities such as: swimming, jumping on the water trampoiline, fishing, canoeing, paddleboarding, swinging on the rope swing, practicing the slack line, playing relay races and outdoor games like capture the flag, tie dying, and sitting around the campfire in the evenings.
There is no wi fi or internet at Isaiah's Run and little to no cell service. It is amazing how often people (even kids!) find that they actually enjoy the esacpe from the connectivity of daily life. There is a land line phone that kids may use to call home and parents are welcome to call as well.

“What an amazing camp! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our girls. They didn’t want to come home. Very well run camp and very organized. It was the first time I left both of our girls, the first time in the hands of strangers and a new place far from home, but I never worried about them after dripping them off for the week. It was just exciting to hear about all the new skills/tricks they were learning from day to day when they called to update me. They learned so much, which most importantly boosted their confidence in themselves to try new things. Can’t thank you enough for one of their best weeks of summer!” – from Woodstock, GA
