Welcome back! Our first week of summer camp will focus on building new relationships among our campers and staff members. We will try to focus on everyone’s skills and talents to discover your camper’s own personality through fun crafts, icebreakers, team challenges, and much more!
Moving & Grooving
Get up, get moving, and get grooving! This week will consist of both indoor and outdoor games, crafts, and activities to get all our campers out of their seats and moving. We will focus on getting our kids to play a series of active games or maybe dance their way to an end-of-the-week talent show. Through this, our campers will bring out their most creative sides!
The war is on campers! This week will be filled with competition on your campgrounds. Get ready to put your game face on through a variety of challenges, contests, and games. Create team flags, team color bracelets, crazy outfits, and more to win the color war cup!
Superheroes & Sidekicks
Let’s create our capes, masks, and get ready to conquer superhero week. Whether it be a well-known superhero or a superhero of your own, this week will put our superpowers to work. Games will be adventurous, activities will be hands-on and we will work on our campers expanding their own creativity.
Holiday Around The World
Let us celebrate all the seasons through our favorite holidays! Whether it be Christmas in July, creating masks from our favorite characters, etc. let's get festive every day during this week. Get ready for lots of arts & crafts, out-of-this-world projects, and plenty of activities throughout the week.
Rockin’ in the U.S.A.
Get ready campers because we will have a full week of patriotic activities planned! Outdoor activities, stars & stripes crafts, and other explosive projects are a must during this week. Let’s show our love for the country we live in.
The heat won’t bring us down this summer! Let’s take a splash into this week with lots of water activities, splashin’ projects, and fun-filled crafts for every age to enjoy. We will incorporate a typical day by the beach for our campers to experience.
Lost In Space
Let’s explore the universe! Look no further, this week will be filled with “out of this world” STEM projects, art activities, and games you’ve yet to play. Through different activities show our kids the different sides of the moon, make sensory projects, and much more. We are ready to take our campers on a mission out of this world.
Wild, Wild, West!
Giddy up cowboys and cowgirls, let's show them what the Lonestar state is all about. Bring out your cowboy boots and get ready to go through a week of several activities learning about the Wild West. Whether it be decorating your own unique cowboy boot, practicing a line dance to perform in front of your camp, or by playing a little flag football against one another. This week will most definitely bring out the cowboy in you.
Farewell campers, we will miss you! Take advantage of this week by taking a drive down memory lane on your favorite memories from camp. Relive your favorite themes during this week and take advantage of spending one more week with your fellow campers/staff members. Make sure you’re ready to spend one more week of camp before your next school year!
