Serving Springfield parents and children for 20 years, Kids Camp provides a premium summer day camp experience because of an outstanding staff, superior facilities, and a consistent schedule of interesting and fun activities. The philosophy of Kids Camp is to offer youth a positive, highly active and healthy summer alternative with an emphasis on outdoor activities, swimming, health and fitness, and a variety of sports. Children are grouped according to grade and rotate through scheduled daily activities, with fun weekly themes and additional exciting on-site presentations throughout the summer. Now, more than ever, children need to be involved in programs that promote movement and healthy lifestyles, along with learning. Sitting indoors all summer is a dangerous prescription for kids today, as many hours each day are already spent watching TV, gaming and computing.
Camp staff are carefully selected for the personality and skills needed to interact with children in a highly active environment. Background checks are also completed for all employees of Kids Camp, Inc. Red Cross, CPR Certification and First Aid Training is mandatory for all counselors, and Lifeguards and Swim Instructors are also Red Cross Certified.
Safety is an important element of Kids Camp, Inc., and requires parent participation and support. Parents appreciate knowing that daily check-in and sign-out procedures are strictly and consistently enforced, and parent designated individuals must be prepared to show picture ID’s. Additional policies and procedures are in place to ensure a safe experience for all youngsters in the program.
The outstanding facilities at Springfield Racquet and Fitness Center allow campers to enjoy a wide variety of scheduled activities. Each week, campers receive dedicated Swimming and Tennis instruction. Discovery, Health & Fitness, Arts & Crafts, Free Swim and Language Arts are all examples of other daily activities. Youngsters are active and play both outdoors and indoors depending on activity and weather conditions. Children may pack a lunch or a daily hot lunch and afternoon snack are also available for purchase at camp. Kids also enjoy some free, supervised play time during the day, and pre and post camp hours are available for working parents.
Camp activities are subject to change without notice at any time and are subject to third party provider availability, facility availability, weather, enrollment and other situations.
Kids Camp Inc., is a not for profit organization providing a summer day camp for youngsters aged 5 – 12 at the Springfield Racquet and Fitness Center campus. Each year, several camp scholarships are provided to the Boys & Girls Club of Springfield.
