About the Adventure

Overview

Adventures in Camp has been a teacher run camp since 2004. Each year we strive to make the next summer better than the last! Recently we have added our reading and math enrichment program. Every group has grade level activities that incorporate the fun of the summer with the math, science and reading enrichment from the classroom.

What is special about our camp? Every counselor is a local professional educator, or in college hoping to become a teacher.

Adventures in Camp is a summer day camp that has daily activities that everyone enjoys! We have fun playing sports and games outside, making arts and crafts, going on nature walks, practicing for our talent show, and playing games inside! Once a week there is a field trip (either we go to the location, or the location comes to us), and Friday is our talent show, pizza and swimming day.


Ages 4 to 12 are invited to come to our camp. Just make sure you are ready for a day FULL of FUN!! Don't forget to wear your sneakers, and bring your bathing suit and towel everyday for all the activities!

Campers will be grouped by ages, and we will try our best to separate siblings so that all campers enjoy their stay at Adventures in Camp (unless siblings wish to be together, in that case, then they will be together). Grouping campers by their ages and interests will make sure all children will be able to do different activities to suit their active lives and abilities.

There will be at least one CPR, First Aid and Asthma trained and certified counselor per maximum of eight to ten children. If there are more campers in their group, an additional adult that is certified in all areas, will be with the group. This way the campers will be highly supervised and receive all the attention they deserve!

Every day of every week there will be a schedule posted. This schedule will show the campers and parents what the daily agenda will be for that day. Every week we will go on a field trip, or have a field trip come to us, and Fridays we go swimming!

Seven years ago we started $5 Fridays. This is when each camper brings in $5 on Fridays instead of packing their lunch. (Moms and Dads love this too--no lunch to pack!!) With that money we order pizza, play at the pool and have ice cream! The campers (and counselors) absolutely LOVE Fridays!

Activities

Adventures in Camp has many fun activities planned every summer. The activities are meant to engage children both physically and mentally. These include musical freeze tag, musical chairs, dance-dance, sidewalk chalk, board games, card games, a talent show, dance contests, swinging, bubbles, and much more!

During the summer we have math, science, and reading enrichment. This is when we find fun lessons that incorporate the skills and strategies from the school year into the summer fun. We usually break this into two segments, one part in the morning, and one after lunch. This way the campers who are in the half day program can benefit from one segment too! Ultimately, learning is FUN, and we want the campers to think so too! We also want to make sure the campers do not lose what they have gained during the school year, so we will have daily lessons that are fun and of high interest for all. Hopefully, our camper's families will let us know the areas where their children need more practice, and we can help out.
