This summer, camp will be swarming with young “operatives” as we delve into the secret world of spycraft. Each week, Commander M will drop off a case file with a new code word for our recruits to explore. In order to conduct their mission campers will enjoy themed challenges, games, activities, technology, food, crafts, music and movies. This exciting program will teach teamwork, reasoning, agility, and resourcefulness while delivering a summer of top secret fun. Mission Possible? More like Mission Awesome! Are you in?

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.
Our camps offer parents payment options including paying weekly or in advance for
discounts. We accept, cash, check, money orders, and all major credit cards. With that being said, if you are paying your tuition weekly, it is imperative that your weekly tuition be paid no later than the Thursday prior to the week you are attending camp. If you pay by check, please make accommodations to visit camp the week prior between 8:30am-3:15pm to make your payment in person.
Any tuition not paid the Thursday prior to the week your camper is scheduled to attend will mean they are subject to lose their place in camp. Tuition will go up by $10 per week on Friday and the sibling discount will not be active. This policy is in place to ensure staffing.
