REC Camp- Explorer Pod (Entering Grades 1-2)
R.E.C. Camp- Recreation Experiences for Children- Explorer Pod
Is a wonderful twist on the traditional day camp. Packed with recreation, sports, and arts & crafts, there is never a dull moment. This activity-based day camp is the perfect blend of choice activities, group games, free play and the ever-popular field trip.
Campers have the opportunity to meet new friends, learn new things and have fun. Each day campers participate in choice activities, group games, 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 activities that come from the counselors that are hired. There are a variety of activities to choose from each Summer.
