Our Junior Adventurers program provides fun and enriching programming based on weekly themes. Each session includes 30 minutes of swimming at our in-ground pool with a certified lifeguard. The program is designed and run by professional or student educators.  Campers are invited to join one to seven weeks of camp.

Morning Adventurers themes are as follows:

Cooking Adventures Around the World: Campers will enjoy making and sampling treats from many cultures. They will take home samples and a keepsake cookbook to try out the recipes at home.

Mad Science: Put on your lab coats and get ready to experiment with all sorts of slimy, gooey stuff during icky sticky creation week!  You will make slime, create explosions with soda, and create your own play-dough and more.

 American Girl/Favorite Doll: Adventures, friendship and fun are in store for you and your Americana girl! Bring your favorite Girl to camp where we will make accessories, have a Doll fashion show for you and your doll, tell stories and sing our way through the week!

Calling All Artists: Have you ever wondered what it takes to be an artist? In this camp we will explore the styles and techniques of the world’s greatest artists. Once students learn about each of the artists, they will have the opportunity to create their very own piece of art inspired by that will be displayed gallery style for you family to see in an exhibit on the last day of camp.

Wizarding World: We’re sending our imagination on vacation by spending the week honoring our good friend Harry Potter. Meet the magical sorting hat before venturing to the land of fiction where campers will enjoy dress up days, Hogwarts crafts, Quidditch and the Tate’s Triwizard dodgeball tournament. We’ll meet you at Platform 9 3/4 for an early departure. Don’t forget your wand and broom!

Summer Camp Detectives: Spend the week following clues and learning the skills needed to solve mysteries right on campus!

Escape Room Challenge: This week campers will race to complete daily escape room challenges. Time is of the essence as they will need to work together to decipher secret codes, complete tasks, and follow the clues to “escape” before it is too late!

“In keeping with our nation’s efforts to maintain social distancing, and consistent with Governor Raimondo’s two-week suspension of public schools throughout the state, we will launch our plan for distance learning. We have planned, rehearsed and are ready to execute ‘virtual’ instruction on Monday, March 30th.”
