Rex, our very “hip” green iguana mascot, says he’s ready to “wanna iguana” when planning this year’s fun of wet & wild, crazy & silly, unbelievable special events for the Summer of 2018 Adventure campers participate in a number of cool activities that will encourage their spirit and self confidence to get up and get going.  So kids, get ready to learn some new hobbies on our Iguana Wanna Mondays, play your favorite sports, games, get creative with arts & crafts and, of course, go on lots of very fun field trips including some additional outdoor adventure based excursions like kayaking & rock climbing!

Teens, this camp is the perfect opportunity to hang out with friends while participating in some great activities suited just for you!  “Teen Turf” also incorporated adventure base field trips like kayaking and surfing!  There will also be additional impromptu field trips and their regular field trip line-up.  Teen Turf is a great summer hang out fest while participating in fun, wet and creative recreation activities!



If you are not sure what Rec Group you should be registering you child/ren for camp… our current Camp Policy Age versus Grade Placement – is as follows: Camp placement i.e. Rec 1, Rec 2, Rec 3 and Teen Turf will be based on what grade the child will be going into in the fall.  This will remain the case in situations where a child has been held back a grade, but is of the age of grade higher.  This is also the case if a child is going to be held back in school the next year, the child will be placed again where the child will be going into in the fall.
