Camp Adventure “Camper Spirit” – Week 1

Yahoo – this week was Camper Spirit week!

Our first week of Camp was so much fun!  Check out this short video that shows us dancing around the campus!

Our first week at Camp Adventure was quite successful with campers getting to know one another and bonding in their own grade-level groups. Our theme, “Camper Spirit,” had children making group campsite flags. They named their group, and the entire camp was treated to an ice cream social!  Take a look at some of the highlights from “Camper Spirit” week.

Campers and Counselors Getting to Know Each Other

 Daily Activities

Wow, what a fun-filled day! Camp concludes for the day at 3:30pm with a closing flag ceremony. Children can also attend before-care beginning at 6:30am, as well as after-care which is open until 6:00pm. Camp Adventure attendees are split into separate grade levels, with camp counselors heading up each group.  Once a month, every group goes on a field trip. Bowling, a Peter Piper Pizza kitchen tour and the movie theater are just a few of the field trips the camp directors have planned. Every Thursday, the seventh and eighth graders participate in a community service project. An upcoming project will focus on downtown Tucson. Special presentations take place at Camp Adventure too. Presenters include National Park Service employees and a reptile specialist. Each week has a different theme here at Camp Adventure:
