It's hard for me to guess the level of the students based on the materials. I mean, there's a unit on subject/verb agreement, which I think of as being pretty basic, and it's followed by a lesson on adjectives/adverbs. . . which I think is considerably more advanced. (Especially adverbs.)
Is the whole camp basically a review?
Another point: I'm guessing that 'authentic materials' is the term for 'reading a magazine article' or something of the like. I'm not opposed to it, but I think something like that could be homework. . . I'd say take the classroom time to have them do something--play a game, or complete a task--in English, where they'd have to use their English actively.
Lastly, I'm a big fan of teaching interrogatives early, because you'll be reviewing how to ask questions through the rest of the camp, assuming they have they have to ask what questions they have in English.
Hope that was helpful,
