Day Camps

Day Camp (ages 5-12)

NEW THIS YEAR: You will notice some camps back by popular demand and some new programs we are excited to run this summer. Camps will have use of our parks and trails, the pool and our new splash pad, and will take outings to surrounding communities. All summer programs offered by the town will focus on getting active, connecting with nature, giving back to our community, and gaining skills needed to create your own adventure. This year the day camps will be broken up into smaller groups with each group having a designated leader. Groups will be established based on age, interest and ability. At times all groups will come together for events or activities to support a multi-aged approach.

NEW TIMING: Day Camp runs 9am-4pm Monday- Friday. Pre and post-camp playground supervision is available from 8am-9am and 4pm-5pm. The cost for pre and/or post-camp play supervision is $5/day (for either 8-9am, 4-5pm, or both).

NEW PRICE: $105 for full weeks and $80 for shortened weeks (July 3rd-6th and August 7th– 10th)

Hero Training (July 3rd – 6th / July 30th – August 3rd)

Be a hero for a week. Learn how heroes not only save lives but give back to their communities. Campers will be able to meet local super heroes, learn new hero moves based on fundamental skill development (faster, stronger, higher), and discover ways to give back to the community that would make anyone feel like they have super powers.

Re-Makery Builders (July 9th – 13th / August 7th – 10th)

What would you do with recycled items? We will use our imaginations to reuse and recycle materials by creating games, crafts, and more. Challenge yourself by making a carboard boat that your team can sit in and test it out in the water as we challenge visiting day camps in a race across the pool!

Survivor Skills (July 16th – 20th / August 13th – 17th)

Do you think you have what it takes to survive in the outdoors? Come learn and improve your survival skills. Campers will learn and prepare for a big adventure at the end of the week, where their newly found adventure skills will be tested. This camp is sure to bring out the adventure deep inside every camper!

Wheeling Adventure (July 23rd – 27th / August 20th – 24th)

Learn how to get from place to place on your wheels, exploring our trail system, and spending time play on our new skate park. Campers will learn new skills on bikes, skateboards, and scooters, travelling throughout our community using only self-propelled modes of transportation.  No skateboard experience required, campers must be able to ride a bicycle or use a scooter. If you have your own wheels and helmet please bring them, if not they can be provided.
