Ready for warmer temps and Palm(er) trees? Us, too. Let’s ditch the collared shirts and throw on a swimsuit.

The standard camp day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:30 pm. Campers are organized into age groups during our morning welcome meeting. Campers will stay with their group and rotate around the activity stations throughout the day. Camp counselors organize structured activities at the stations. At certain times, campers can choose between organized activities and free play. For example, extended care and game room time give campers an opportunity for self-directed play while under counselor supervision. Swimming occurs daily and on hotter days we’ll blow up the 40-foot inflatable slip n’ slide for extra splash time
Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten are separated from the older campers for most activities but will participate in all age appropriate events, such as Rock Shows, Talent Shows, and Dances.
Snack and Lunch
Campers need to bring enough food for a morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack. We’ll be moving around a lot so you should pack a little extra food than usual. Having fun burns a lot of calories!
