Camp West, ages 5-12, is filled with the perfect blend of Education, Sports and Fun! Programming is focused around: Nature, the Arts, Technology, and Sports and Recreation. Activities enable campers to develop and apply problem-solving skills, gain exposure to the arts, build teamwork skills, create friendships, practice using technology, experience the natural world, and so much more. Our team of dedicated and well-trained professionals works year-round to ensure that our camp programs are fresh, creative and exciting. This year’s theme is: Time & Space
Camp activities include:
Creative Expression – Individuals and small groups explore a variety of media. Campers enjoy culinary arts, plaster casting, drawing and painting, dance, drama, photography, videography, and creative writing.
Non-Competitive Sports – Team sports are played daily and structured so that everyone participates without feeling uncomfortable about their skill level. Popular camp sports include flag football, swimming, volleyball, kickball, basketball, and challenge courses.
Field Trips & Special Guests – Field trips are taken weekly to local theaters, museums, nature reserves, zoos, sporting events, and more. Throughout the summer, Camp West invites special guests to give talks and hands-on demonstrations for campers. Special guests in the past have included representatives from White Clay Creek Parks, wild animal rescues, honeybee keepers, police K9, poets, musicians, and magicians to name a few.
Technology – Campers use our full-service computer lab and other equipment to enhance learning experiences and play interactive games.
