All Camp Theme Week Descriptions

Planet Earth

From the depths of the ocean, to the mountain peaks, our planet is home to so many amazing (and terrifying!) beings. Campers discover creatures big and small while building skills needed to survive in extreme environments. We need YOU to help us chase sharks, build our survival rafts, and tame wild animals during these weeks!

Race Against Time

Campers build a time machine to adventure to worlds of the past, and then back again! Campers uncover dinosaur eggs, critique cavemen art, battle pirates, and even become Olympians in ancient Greece. Finally, Campers head out to explore the galaxy and meet futuristic alien creatures, but don’t worry, they are always back in time for parent pick-up!

Spy Kids

Here is your mission, should you choose to accept it. Campers travel to all corners of the world, collecting clues while staying one step ahead of the evil villain. Campers will complete secret agent training as they navigate a laser maze, break codes, and become masters of gadgets and disguises.

Campers’ Got Talent

Lights, Camera, Action! Campers experience all things Hollywood as they participate in gameshows (like Minute to Win It!), make action movies, and even walk the red carpet! Campers discover their star qualities as they showcase their special talents in a culminating event.

Epic Challenge

Can you make the impossible possible? Campers stretch themselves and the boundaries of science to the limit as they make giant bubbles, mix potions, attempt to break world records, and collaborate in silly team challenges.
