Your young athlete’s summer will be filled with a variety of sports. All skill levels are welcome. The main focus of this camp is having fun, learning good sportsmanship, and developing and improving skills in sport such as hockey, soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball and other fun sports. In the afternoon we will go swimming, and we will take exciting field trips each week.
Campers will experience a fun adventurous summer filled with cool crafts, games, new discoveries about their surroundings, fantastic field trips, afternoon swim time, and occasional visits to the library. Adventure Camp emphasizes making new friends, trying new activities and having fun.
Children will connect with the farm animals and the outdoors every day! A hike through Fischer Woods and caring for the animals at Fischer Farm will provide great opportunities for children to appreciate and learn about the nature that surrounds us. Making discoveries to see what the past was like through games and hands-on activities are just part of our fun-filled day.
