WHY A "WEEKDAY SLEEP-AWAY CAMP"?
Campus Kids has many unique features, but we are best known for being "the
weekday sleep-away camps". Started in 1991, we are
celebrating 22 unforgettable summers.
We created our camp to give kids a high quality, private resident camp
experience while still enjoying some summer fun with their families.
Campus Kids picks up campers
at area meeting points on Monday mornings. The camp buses (air
conditioned coach buses with bathrooms and camp counselors on board) arrive
in camp by 10:00 AM. After a fun-filled week of camp, campers board
the buses again late Friday afternoons and are home with their families by
suppertime. Campers can sign up for 2, 4, 6 or 8-week sessions.
We're just like a "regular"
sleep-away camp with bunk groups, a wide variety of activities, terrific
evening programs, shows and special events. Campers become more
independent and learn about making new friends and getting along with all sorts of people.
They form deep friendships. Their counselors are excellent role models
who have a significant positive impact on their campers' lives. If you came to one of
our annual camp reunions in the winter, you would easily see how close everyone has
become after a summer at camp.
We are often asked "what kind
of families" choose Campus Kids. Some choose our program as a
transition between day camp and 7-day-a-week resident camp. Their
campers might spend one to three summers with us before going to another
camp. In this case, we provide an important transition. Some
campers might never have tried sleep-away camp if they didn't have an
option like Campus Kids to get started.
More common, though, are those
campers and their families who simply love our camp and the lifestyle it
offers. They want family time together in the summer along with the
terrific experiences of sleep-away camp. It's definitely the "best of
both worlds" for them and their kids spend many summers at Campus Kids.
We have lots of campers who are in their fourth, fifth . . . even eighth
summer at our camp and our staff includes former campers who have been at
Campus Kids for ten or more years.
No two kids are alike.
No two families are alike. People need choices and Campus Kids provides an important, unique camp option.
