Sports & Fun Camp [grades 1–5]
This is no ordinary "sports" camp! Of course we'll have high energy sports, your favorite games, and team building every day, plus fun challenges like trivia, scavenger hunts, and a raffle to win prizes. Outdoor fun includes water games like balloon toss, magic beads, and more. The day includes games and sports utilizing the awesome features of Bedford's state-of-the-art gym, like rock-climbing and digital wall games. Kids will also enjoy an (optional) Talent Show, movie day, arts and crafts, bricks and board games. Throughout the week, campers engage in active play that reinforces teamwork and promotes confidence and self-esteem. The morning also includes optional swim time in the Olympic-sized pool at Staples High School.
