Enjoy our sprawling campus with access to 100 acres of prairie and woods. Children must be at least 3 years old by May 1 and toilet trained. Children will be split into two groups: 3 year-olds to rising kindergarteners, and rising first graders to 10 year-olds. Campers will need a packed lunch and a change of clothes each day. All camps run Monday–Friday from 9–1.
This week is all about fantasy and adventure. We will read and act out classic fictional tales for young children. Campers will create their own scenarios of lost treasures, fairies, superheroes, and mermaids. They will travel the trails and woodlands around Overfield, building forts, castles, and castaway shelters from found materials. The children will make maps and flags, to create dioramas of imagined worlds, and to plot a course to fun. Imagination full speed ahead!
Animals that fly, hop, crawl, and soar will be the focus of this fun-filled week. Campers will go on a journey to the past to imagine the world of the dinosaur. The woods, meadows, and ponds of Overfield will provide the avenue for children to meet the animals of today. We will encounter furry friends from home and helpers from the farm, and explore the realm of fantasy animals like unicorns and dragons. With animal-inspired art and a special visit from Brukner Nature Center’s live animals, campers will have a week of creature-inspired adventures.
Do you love to paint, sculpt, draw, cook, act, construct, or sing? Then this is the week for you! Children will explore the world of color, texture, and sound to create imaginative works of art. We will use nature’s inspiration to cook up some creative cuisine, and put our artistry on display at a camp talent show. Calling all artists to Overfield Summer Camp!
Play games and engage in team-building adventures of all kinds. Younger children will play duck-duck-goose, musical chairs, and freeze tag. Older children will refine their sportsmanship with games like four square, kickball, corn hole, and capture the flag. Climb a rock wall, battle your way through an obstacle course, and take a ride on a trike or bike. Jump rope, try a new board game, or cool off playing water games; this is a week full of play!
Join us on a watery adventure, as campers hike to nearby water features to meet the plants and animals that call the water home. Young scientists will explore, test, and experiment to learn about the properties of water. With a water Olympics and a mud pit, we will stay cool celebrating water and all its great gifts.
With the hot days of summer upon us, one week of water fun is just not enough! We will cool off with even more wet adventures as campers explore the ponds and marshes that are the home for many plants and animals. Campers will continue to design and inquire to learn about the unique features of water. With another week full of water games, sprinklers, and muddy, wet fun, we will close out summer camp celebrating water!
