Michael Jordan said, “Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.” In that spirit, during the summer the Henderson International School hosts the Summit Ridge Day Camp. This traditional day camp is a great way for kids to stay active, have an awesome time and build lifelong friendships.
The Summit Ridge Day Camp features all the activities you remember and love from your childhood, but with even more activities geared toward engaging your child’s imagination and fueling their spirit of wonder. The camp offers familiar activities like daily swimming, archery, woodworking and dodge ball. Some of the many things that make this camp really unique are offerings such as Wacky Science, movie making and karaoke. There are four different camps from which to choose: lower camp, upper camp, sports camp and early teen camp. Each camp is geared toward the interests and abilities of their appropriate age group.
Additionally, the Summit Ridge Day Camp has planned “Spirit Days,” “Pancake and Pajama Day,” and everyone’s favorite “Color War!” The campers start each day on the shaded playground and the counselors lead “Opening Circle” where everyone gets settled in and hears about the activities planned for the day. The camp experience ends each day with “Popsicle Time” and “Closing Circle,” where the whole camp comes together to celebrate birthdays, sing songs, play games and compete for the coveted “Spirit Stick.” In this way, the camp builds a cohesive community where all the campers feel part of the team, while building stronger relationships with their fellow campers and counselors.
The Summit Ridge Day Camp runs from June 10 through August 2 in four two-week sessions. The session dates are:
Session A: June 10 – June 21
Session B: June 24 – July 5 (no camp July 4)
Session C: July 8 – July 19
Session D: July 22 – August 2
The Summit Ridge Day Camp is a wonderful way to keep your kids actively engaged over the summer, while making learning exciting. You can see for yourself just how amazing this summer camp experience is by attending the Summit Ridge Day Camp Open House on Sunday, May 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on campus at the Henderson International School.
