  • My 9-yr old DD attends a summer camp each year. We chose the summer day camp because they had several activities that were age appropriate such as swimming, hiking, crafts, movies, etc. She likes this camp becuase each week there is a different emphasis. Here are some that she has had in the past:

    1) African Safari week - the kids made animal crafts, went to the zoo and watched Jumangi.
    2) America the Beautiful! - have a watermelon seed contest, have a cookout, visit a museum or go to the ice cream shop.
    3) Oh Canada -the kids visited the local ice rink, ate pancakes with maple syrup, and learned more about Canada.
    4) H2O Overload - the kids went to the waterpark for one day, played with water balloons, painted with water colors, etc.
    5) Outdoor Exploration - take the kids on a hike, have a scavanger hunt, etc.

    I have several years of my daughter's summer events if you want more. Just contact me. Good Luck!
