What does a typical day look like for a camper?
The camp day begins when campers are greeted by our friendly and energetic staff. Every day campers will have the chance to participate in daily activities across all areas of athletics, arts, aquatics, and outdoor adventures.

Sports: Our sports program is designed on skill development and places an emphasis on sportsmanship, trying your best, and teamwork. We have many offerings, such as soccer, basketball, football, baseball, softball, archery, rugby, gaga, field hockey, and much more.

Swim: Our swim program is the backbone to the day’s activities. Each day, campers participate in an instructional swim period in the mornings where we focus on skill development. In the afternoon, we have a free swim period where we focus on FUN.

Art & Music: Our arts program allows campers to express themselves through a variety of mediums such as clay, jewelry making, and painting. Our music specialist teaches our campers fun camp songs that they will remember for a lifetime.

Electives: As our campers grow, their interests grow, too! We offer our older campers the opportunity to choose their own activities throughout the week, allowing them to design their own summer experience.

Field Trips: Campers will have off site activities and field trips periodically throughout the summer as well as special programming. Check out our camp calendar for more information.
