The Ultimate Day Camp Difference

Design Your Day and 5-Day Skill Building (ages 6-14)
Increased enthusiasm, individuality and confidence are just some of the benefits of allowing campers to choose their own activities and “design their day.” Campers can customize their camp experience in two ways: First, campers can choose two (2) of their favorite activities each day, in the categories of Art, Science and Sport. Second, campers can choose to participate in one block of “Skill Building” activity time each day—building up their skills and knowledge in that specialty throughout the week.
Daily Activities Include: Swim Instruction
2 Free Swims in The Summer Club Waterpark
2 Choice Activity Blocks
A 5 Day Specialty Activity Block Each Day
Tennis Instruction (optional)
Lunch and Snack Included
Campers will build friendships and confidence while experiencing new activities and facing exciting challenges, all while having the time of their lives! Campers are given the ability to choose their activities at two different activity blocks during their day. Campers will explore arts, science, and sports in fun, creative, messy lessons, changing each day.
Choice Activities Include:
Camper Favorites: Laser Games, Rock Climbing, Tennis Lessons
Sports: Soccer, basketball, street hockey, waffle ball, dodge ball, rock climbing and more.
Arts & Crafts: Painting, beading, crafting, fashion and recycle projects...too many to name!
Mad Science: Cool science experiments, nature lessons, building with Kinex and more.
5 Day Specialty Activities: Campers may choose a specialty activity to participate in during one block each day for all five days of their camp week. This gives the campers the ability to show progress in the specialty. As an example, the campers choosing Theater will work on a camper production to perform on Friday. 5 day activities include: Theater, robotics, karate, art, sports conditioning. *Campers may choose to participate in a recreational sport if a 5 day specialty is not chosen.
Don’t forget about the FUN!
At The Ultimate Day Camp we celebrate Fridays with a fun theme like Olympics, Carnival or Boston Sports, special activities like the “Ultimate Camper Dash” and a special lunch!
