Each day campers start off with group circle time so that they can learn about the days activities, meet other campers and be advised of the the rules. Campers will get creative and sometimes even a little dirty with the days 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 you kids engaged, active and having fun! All of our activities are age appropriate, as safety is our first priority!
