Parents and kids agree, Kamparama is the place to be!

Unique activities each week! No two weeks are the same.

Repeating activities is boring! At Kamparama, our camp days are built around exciting themes that last for two weeks. Each theme has its unique set of creative, STEM, and movement activities. You can sign your child up for just one week during the summer, or sign up for all nine! In addition to all of the activities offered, we also believe that campers should be able to self select based on their preferences. This means your child will not be forced into a particular activity if he or she wants to do something else indoors or outdoors–but will always be supervised by one of our Kamparama Staff. Although children will be encouraged to diversify their experiences, we follow their lead. After all, this is their summer!

Regardless of any given theme, each week will include the following activities:

Water Days: Every Thursday, weather permitting, Kamparama will have special activities and playtime that involve water. Campers should be prepared to get wet on these days.

Wheel Days: Every Thursday, campers are allowed to bring their “wheels,” i.e. roller blades, scooters, or bikes to camp. A designated spot will be set up at camp for supervised wheel time. Helmets are required. No skateboards.

Bounce House: Every Monday, weather permitting, Kamparama will have a bounce house on site.

Ice Cream Man: Every other Thursday, the Ice Cream Man will visit Kamparama and share tasty treats for all!

Lunch Bunch: Kamparama provides lunch for campers twice per week. A full schedule can be found here.

Field Trips: Each week features three excursions to local attractions, some at an additional cost. This summer we will be exploring local parks, catching a Giants game, bouncing it out at Rock’n Jump and many more!

Stay and Play: If your child is not registered to attend a field trip, they will be able to continue to have fun with their friends during our Stay and Play activities. Please note, children who normally attend the Brittan Acres site will need to be dropped off and picked up by their parents at the Heather Kamparama site on the days they are participating in Stay and Play.
