Adventure Camp – ages 1st – 6th Grade

 2018 Summer Camp Information 

register-now-2012Newmarket’s 7 week Camp Wanna Iguana’s Summer Adventure program is by far the hippest and most fun on the Seacoast!  Just ask Rex, our very “hip” green iguana mascot.  Even though it’s far beyond tropical conditions outside right now, Rex says he’s ready to “wanna iguana” and is knee deep in snow planning this summer’s  SAIL THE SEVEN SEAS   Special Events! 


That’s right, we at Newmarket Rec are known for thinking out of the box for planning our crazy special events…  and of course,  MUSIC and OUTSIDE PLAY always go hand-in-hand!  That’s why we’ll be incorporating all types of themed music weeks with our wild, and crazy Special Events with our SAILING THE SEVEN SEAS theme for the Summer of 2018!  Adventure campers participate in a number of these sometimes wet, sometimes messy, but always loads of fun activities that will encourage their spirit and self-confidence to get up & get going!  DSCN0716

When we are not in the thick of our afternoon special events activities that our camp is Guinness World Record known for, campers spend time playing all the outdoor traditional summer camp favorite games like; Kickball, Basketball, Soccer, 4 Square, Street Hockey, Jump Roping, Arts & Crafts, building Sand Castles, spending imaginative time on our enormous Playground and Swings area, and plenty of water play fun. 

And we must not forget with our Iguana Wanna Mondays program (included in the Camp Price), where kids have an opportunity to learn some new and interesting hobbies or recreational activities.  On Monday’s we instruct more than 20 different activities that kids get to choose from based on their interests and preferences, like “Silly Science”, “Broadway Musicals” “Chefs in the Kitchen”, “Hip Hop”, “Lego League”, “Ceramics”, “Archery”, “Mountain Biking”, “Tennis”, “Golf”, “Treasure Hunters”,  just to name a few… Yes, we said, just to name a few because there are lots more to choose from through the summer.  These classes are taught by our very own counselors and/or hired instructors who are both passionate and proficient in these specialty areas.

Wow, we haven’t even told you about our extensive Field Trips line up for the summer.   Campers have the option of going on 2 different field trips each week. (1st – 4th graders go on Tuesday & Thursdays and 5th grade go on Wednesday and Fridays)  That’s right, we have book additional field trips that parents may sign up for and pay a la carte and/or register and pay all at once to insure your child gets on the bus!  On days your child is not going on a field trip – campers will spend the day at the camp and participate in other on-site activities. 


Our Very Detailed Parent Packet is packed full of info and Camp policies… we highly suggest you download and read thoroughly.  Also, when registering your child you will be asked to confirm that you have read and agree to all the rules & policies listed in the packet.
