Rec. Camp- Explorers (Entering Grades K-2, Fall 2019)
Rec. Camp is a wonderful twist on the traditional day camp. Packed with recreation, sports, arts & crafts and nature activities, there is never a dull moment. This activity-based camp is the perfect blend of choice activities, age group rotations, free play and the ever popular field trips.
Campers have the opportunity to meet new friends, learn new things and have fun. Each day campers participate in themed activities, group games, choice time activities and indoor and outdoor play. After a morning on the go, there is lunch and quiet time to rejuvenate and be ready for an afternoon of fun activities.
Campers get to choose their Choice Times activities that come from the counselors that are hired. Each week counselors get to choose the choice times they want to offer. There will be a variety of activities to choose from.
