Summer Day Camp 2017
Join us for Brain Gain Summer Camp featuring fun, themed activities for elementary school, middle school and high school students. Each module takes a project-based learning approach to develop critical problem-solving and creative-thinking skills; youth engage in a process of learning through discovery, imaginative expression, group work and a final project or production. With awesome weekly themes, campers will enjoy a variety of activities in the areas of the arts, science, healthy lifestyles, sports, games, and weekly field trips! Breakfast, lunch and a snack are provided each day.

Summer Day Camp for All Ages:
1st & 2nd Grades Gear up for adventure! Our camp for first and second graders, Voyager Camp, is perfect for younger campers. Whether you’ve been to camp before, or are a first timer, our age appropriate games and activities will keep your camper engaged and active all summer long.
3rd & 4th Grades An adventurous camp for those with energy! Our camp for third and fourth graders, Discovery Camp, lives up to its namesake! To keep up with its active campers, this camp is filled with great field trips around the Valley — regional parks, fun centers, interactive learning centers, and more. Days on-site will be spent engaged in a broad range of activities — group games/sports, science/nature projects, music/drama, art, and Technology. This camp focuses on learning and team building, while emphasizing safety.
5th & 6th Grades Be ready for your fifth and sixth grader to travel with Explorers Camp. With off-site field trips each week your camper will be active, engaged, and tired by the end of each day. We’ll explore the Valley and places such as Museums, Parks and Great America. This active camp will help prepare your camper for Middle School by building confidence, improving social skills, and developing social responsibility.
7th & 8th Grades Welcome to the best teen camp in the Valley, Movin’ On! This camp is all about fun, with action packed trips each week. We’ll go rock climbing, windsurfing, horseback riding, mountain biking, river rafting and more. When on-site we’ll be just as busy — volunteering, and creating our own games and activities while helping younger campers. This camp is designed to help teens develop independence and leadership while in a secure, safe group setting.
