Ask any Magic 8 Ball if the biggest news of 1974 was the establishment of KIDCAM Camps and the answer should be “Without a doubt.” So this summer, we’re giving a nod to four decades of All Summer, All Fun with #TBSUMMER. Campers will get the full KIDCAM experience with a cool retro twist as we time travel through the pop culture of the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s…and the next 40 years. And #TBSUMMER is sure to be a family bonding opportunity as your kids are introduced to all the best parts of your own childhood. Really—just ask your Magic 8 Ball!

With camper safety as the cornerstone of our program, the camp staff consists of certified teachers, outstanding college students and responsible and energetic teenagers. Once hired, the Kidcam staff goes through a rigorous training program in preparation for the first day of camp.
Before the campers make the first splash into the water, our Water Safety Instructor will evaluate the pool area and establish a swimming program based on safety. Our swimming program is supervised by certified life guards at all times. Swimmers will engage in pool games and competitions that are fun and age appropriate. Any camper who cannot swim will participate in group swim lessons conducted by the camp staff. Campers will swim daily at the Campground pool, as well as use the splash pad.
