Summer Camp

Get Into a Summer State of Mind

Ready for warmer temps and Palm(er) trees? Us, too. Let’s ditch the collared shirts and throw on a swimsuit. At Palmer Summer Camp, you’ll glide, scavenge, and splash your way through summer with 40-foot slip ‘n slides, a superhero scavenger hunt, and plenty of epic pool stunts. From loom bands to rock bands and talent shows to game shows, there will be no shortage of fun. Because here at Palmer, Tie Dye Tuesday and Floaty Friday aren’t just spirit days – they’re a state of mind.

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!
