About Camp Activities

Each day campers start off with group circle time so that they can learn about the day's activities, meet other campers and be advised of the rules.  Campers will get creative and sometimes even a little dirty with the day's arts and crafts project. One of the most favorite activities is pool time, typically from 1:00-3:00 pm daily! We always offer some form of organized skill-building game or activity, as well as a group fitness class for kids - like yoga, dodge ball, and Zumba. It's our goal to keep your kids engaged, active and having fun! All of our activities are age-appropriate, as safety is our first priority!
