Summer Camp Schedule & Special Events

We offer flexible scheduling to meet the needs of our families.  You may register your camper for one day, the entire summer, or anything in between. No week-long commitments are necessary (but recommended to get the best camp experience). Campers may add days to their contract with 24 hour notice, provided there is open space available.

View our tentative special event calendar.

Summer day camps are full of adventure and activities that entertain children and keep them moving!  Incorporating themes into summer camp activities allows campers to get out of their everyday routines and show their creative sides. Don't waste another summer playing video games and sitting around twidling your thumbs!

We are excited to announce our 2017 summer camp themes!

Week 1: June 26 - July 30: Adventure Awaits

Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My! Welcome to the adventures we will emback on at CCCC Summer Camp!  This week is filled with ice breaker and team building activities so we can get to know each other better. Show us your camp spirit through group banners, songs and chants, friendship circles, scavenger hunts, and so much more!

Character Trait of the Week: Friendship (Caring & Compassionate)

Week 2: July 3 - July 7 (Closed July 4): Campers to the Rescue

From everything red, white, and blue to our hometown heroes, it's a party in the U-S-A!  Join us this week as we meet and salute real life superheroes -- military personnel, police officers, firefighters, EMT's, lifeguards and more.

Character Trait of the Week: Citizenship & Courage

Week 3: July 10 - July 14: Nature Detectives

It's all about the world around us this week as we use our senses to explore the sights, sounds, and smells of the natural world.  Campers will enjoy nature hikes, creek walks, crafts and other activities centered around nature and sustainability as we discuss recycling and gardening.

Character Trait of the Week: Respect

Week 4: July 17 - July 21: Backyard Bash

Friends, fun, and sun! What more could you be looking for in a summer camp?  Let's enjoy the great outdoors with classic games like kickball, volleyball, four square, hopscotch, lawn games, water play, and a s'mores bash to end the week!

Character Trait of the Week: Cooperation & Fairness

Week 5: July 24 - July 28: Barnyard Palooza

Campers will be living the country life this week as we explore what it takes to be a farmer.  From learning about the care and maintenance of animals that live on a farm, to the crops and food from farm to table, to what farmers do on a daily basis, we'll be sure to get down and dirty on the farm.

Character Trait of the Week: Responsibility

 Week 6: July 31 - August 4: Water, Water, Everywhere

Let's dive into discovery this week and learn all about ocean creatures and flora. And after what's been hopefully a hot summer, we'll cool off with some fun water games, sprinklers, slip-n-slides, and of course a rockin' beach party!

Character Trait of the Week: Perseverance

Week 7: August 7 - August 11: Cool Creatures

We're off to investigate the animal kingdom in their natural habitats.  Grab your passports as we jump, crawl, and slither our way through the rainforest, grasslands, desert, and arctic tundra.

Character Trait of the Week: Trustworthiness & Honesty

Week 8: August 14 - August 18: Camp Rewind

Did you love the country ho-down during Barnyard Palooza week?  Or wish you could play water balloon baseball one more time?  Here's your chance to do it again!  Spend the week doing all your favorite activities from this summer.  Let's celebrate the best summer ever and have one last HOORAH!

Character Trait of the Week: Gratitude
