Summertime is to Recharge and Unwind

Summertime is an important break from school and a change in mind-set to recharge and unwind, to forget about school and have fun with outdoor activities and play. Our Catch Us If You Can Summer Camp is designed to support this summertime mindset and to have an easy time to enjoy the summer to play and have fun as a first priority.

Our Camp is based on the Concept of “The Power of Play”

The Power of Play is to have fun learning, exploring and improve social skills. We encourage and to inspire our campers to “Let Everyone Play“.

 Our Camp Agenda is having Fun, Learning through Games and Play with others and Burning Energy through Activities

Our camp is grade-level appropriate for campers. Our camp calendar is developed each year with an original agenda and new activities.

We are more than just a day camp. We are a well-know and experienced private school with an extensive after school program, called the Stay & Play Safely Club. Our after school program is for children from Kindergarten through 5th grade. We work with kids most of the year with the objective to have fun in a safe environment and help them grow with “The Power of Play“.

We know kids and how to encourage them to play. We put optimal fun activities for our calendar that kids like to do. If the kids don’t like an activity or determine it’s not fun, we immediately replace it with a new activity.

We offer a superior camp experience with a variety of activities that campers may choose to participate with each day. Choosing their own activities will make it special, rewarding, exciting, and fun. Not choosing an activity is not an option. We motivate the camper to participate and try something new.

Our camp is unsurpassed in the local area because we are both a fun enrichment experience and a summer day camp with excellent caring counselors. We have an exceptional well-equipped and maintained playgrounds – the best in the area for the best playtime.

We wish for all children to be ready for this new experience. Their safety and happiness is our biggest concern.

 Make Summertime Count

Makes summertime count by having your child attending “Catch Us if You Can” with free play, group play, sports, and crafts, as well as, an emphasis on social interaction. Our camp can contribute to effective child development and help grow your child because children spend most of their time at camp playing and having fun and don’t realize learning is happening.

Our camp is focused on having fun with different age-appropriate activities. These activities ranging from gym activities, gymnastics, crafts, sing-a-longs, board games, sports, street games to just spending time to let children free play. Our summer camp program is NOT a summer school, but a fun day-camp with an integrated planned agenda and provides enrichment in many different areas. We encourage our campers to be active at play to release energy through physical exercise.

Our recreational activities are chosen to “Let Everyone Play” to foster to improve social interaction and learning skills under the guidance of experienced counselors.
