Adventure Day Camp

Our Adventure Day Campers will enjoy days full of exciting sports and games, creative art projects, fun in the sun, and making new friends. Each week will be creatively themed and scheduled by our camp staff with age-appropriate activities and special events designed to give campers the most fun and memorable summer camp experience possible. Campers will participate in their daily activities split into age-appropriate groups determined by the school grade they are entering. Please send a lunch and snack with your child each day, as lunch is not provided. In the event of heavy rain, storms, and/or a heat advisory, Adventure Day Camp will be held indoors at a location to be determined. Weather related changes will be posted on MyRec in a red Alert banner.
