ADVENTURES IN FUN AND FRIENDSHIP

 

Choices abound when it comes to kids and summer camp. Camps exist for every sort of activity and sport, through all sorts of organizations. That's why we know it's such a compliment when kids ask to come back to Bates-Rich Summer Camp year after year.


Our summer camp is packed with fun activities and special experiences, and is led by experienced teachers in a small group environment. Each week revolves around a different theme - examples from 2015 are 'Ignite Your Summer' and 'Space is the Place.' Activities for the week revolve around the theme, and include crafts, science, music, drama and sports. We also have daily outdoor adventures such as walks, playground time, water play and organized games. Each week includes a field trip or special visitor, In 2015, we will be visiting an outdoor spray park, a pizza shop and a children's theater. We also have weekly camp cookouts. Your child's summer camp schedule is completely customizable - you can sign up for as many weeks as you need, full-time or part-time, and payment is not due until the month of attendance.


Our Camp Director has been a part of our teaching staff since Bates-Rich opened in 2004. She has extensive experience and education relating specifically to school-aged children. Her co-teachers are also long-term staff. The level of experience of our teachers is one of the advantages that sets us apart. While the primary focus of summer is having fun, we believe it is important to continue to work hard on building social and emotional skills. The kids know that our mantra of Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Respectful is year-round.
