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

Small groups, fun activities all summer long!

At Kamparama this summer, our camp days are built around exciting themes! Each theme has its unique set of creative, STEAM, and movement activities.

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!

Safety Information

Other safety measures: We will follow all safety precautions and cleaning procedures.  Masks will be required at all times, except while eating, and social distancing guidelines will be followed.

Activity Information

Each week will have a unique theme. See below for details! Regardless of the theme, each week will include the following activities:

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

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

Wheels Day: Kids are allowed to bring their “wheels” every Monday and Friday!!

Lunch Bunch: Kamparama will provide lunch for campers Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 

Field Trips: We are offering field trips to various parks on Tuesdays and other attractions on Thursdays.

Stay and Play: If there is enough interest (10 child minimum) we will offer on site activities for campers who prefer to stay on campus and not attend field trips.

                     

June 13-17: Dive Into Rivers Lakes and Oceans part 1

Let’s dive into some Rivers, Lakes, and Oceans and learn all there is to know about what lies beneath. We will create an Ocean in a bottle STEM project to display under the sea. Explore the difference between the salt watery depths of the Oceans compared to the clear freshwaters of Lakes and Rivers with an interesting experiment called fresh water vs. salty water. Learn about rivers and lakes by touching and feeling in our unique sensory table. Then dive in and learn about river beavers as we create a paper bag beaver art project. Let’s float on into the kitchen and create our yummy edible beach cups and clever sandcastle stacking cake. Kamparama will also offer many outdoor activities such as jump the river, beach ball hockey, and boat racing! We are so excited to have you all jump in and join us for our two weeks of exploring the exiting things that lie beneath the surface!
