General Information:

Children are placed in groups based on their ages.  We will try our best to place children in groups with their friends. 

 

Daily routine:

Camp Day Opens with Announcements from the Camp Director.

The groups rotate into the pool starting at 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

All campers must take a swim test their first day of camp to determine their swimming ability and where they are permitted to swim in the pool.  We will only be using the pool 3 days of the week.  Campers must bring their swim attire on those days. 

 

Activities Include:

Kickball, four square, flag football, noodle tag, monster ball, gaga ball, scavenger hunts, silent ball, Pictionary, 4 corners, swim fishy.

 

Board Games Room ~ has a wealth of classic board games, Legos, cards (Uno, Swap, Skip Bo, and Phase 10), foosball table, air hockey table, and nok hockey tables.

 

Hobbies and Clubs: During this time of the day campers can pick the activities they want to do.  Aside from sports activities, there is art (bracelets and gimp, arm knitting, drawing), cooking and science.

 

Field Trips: the camp will take at least 3 fields during the summer.

 

Lunches: campers are responsible for bringing their lunches to camp every day along with snacks. We highly recommend campers bring a water bottle to camp everyday since we are in and out of the building. 

 

We always hold a parent orientation meeting to review the camp and answer any questions parents may have regarding the program.
