Summer Camps

Summer Camp 2020

In previous years, Summer Camp was offered with half day and full day options.  Due to COVID restrictions, Summer Camp is only being offered as a Full Day Weekly Sign Up and offering no sibling discounts.  Each week, we will have a different theme and base games, activities, art projects, weekly movies and snacks around those themes.  All summer, we will have lots of lanyard, craft projects, board games and other optional activities. We will be ordering pizza for lunch on Fridays!

What is the key focus of this Summer Camp?

Your child will attend full day of gymnastics, ,rock climbing, games, art projects and conditioning. Children will start out with a warm-up, soon after arrival. This will consist of running, jumping, or completing obstacle courses. During camp there will be structured games and fitness challenges such as team building activities, ice breakers, and conditioning. Depending on the agenda for the day, campers will either start with Gymnastics or Rock-Climbing. During the Rock- Climbing course, your child will learn different climbing techniques and complete challenges.

What form of climbing will they learn?

The wall is structured primarily for bouldering (bouldering is un-roped climbing with a specific height limit, and requires no technical training or harness). Although this will be the main focus, your child will also have access to the full wall, which is no higher than 23 ft.

Will my child be safe?

Campers will always remain under supervision of well-trained instructors. Your child will wear a harness and rock climbing shoes during belaying for extra security. We will provide the shoes and disinfect them after each use.

What should I bring for my child to wear?

Girls would need leotard and shorts for climbing. Boys should wear shorts and a T-shirt. All children should have socks to wear during climbing, for sanitation purposes.

Is it a good idea to leave my child during camp?

Due to COVID restrictions, we ask that parents do not stay for Summer Camp. Also, camp is an independent activity for a growing child, and parents in the lobby area distract children from listening to their instructor and or interacting with other children.

Should I send my child with something to eat?

Yes! A bagged lunch ( we do have a refrigerator for lunch storage) and a should bring a snack of their choice. We will have some treats and snacks to offer throughout the summer so please let us know if your child has any food allergies. Lakeshore Academy will be having Pizza Fridays and we will order lunch for all the kids.

What time should I arrive to pick my child up from camp?

Please pick ups your child promptly at 3:30.  Coaches will bring the kids out to the loading dock for pick up.
