After Camp AdventureS'more For You And S'more for Me!

Evening After Camp Adventure

Every Thursday, Amity Acres Day Camp offers an optional After Camp Adventure (formerly called campfire)

All campers that would like to join us for the after camp adventure are welcome to do so. After our closing flag ceremony and some campers go home, those staying for an extended evening continue the fun. We have a snack and three more activities. One activity is usually swimming, (weather permitting), zip line or climbing wall and most likely a craft.  Dinner is served and then the fun continues with a campfire (weather permitting). We roast marshmallows and enjoy the fire (weather permitting).

During weeks 2-8, campers entering grade four and older are invited to sleep over at camp. Activities, campfire and dinner are included as well as breakfast and lunch the following day.

Additional, extended overnights are offered for two weeks during the summer. They are for girls entering the 4th grade and older. These are our 3 night stay weeks.

 

Why Amity Acres?

Amity Acres Day Camp is a lot of fun. But, it's fun with a purpose. Through camp, children are exposed to ideas and information that will make a difference for the rest of their lives. It also teaches three basic, yet important skills.

Courage

Camp is a community unlike any other. Together, in what begins as an unfamiliar setting, campers find the courage within themselves to meet new people, make new friends, and bond together. Thereafter, camp becomes both familiar and comfortable; it's now the place they want to be.  As they make choices and direct projects, girls learn to work well with others, become self-reliant, and develop their leadership skills.

Confidence

For many campers, Amity Acres Day Camp is their first experience away from parents, away from home, and away from familiarity - even if only for a day. Camp becomes their safe haven, where they unleash their unlimited potential, and where they develop the confidence they need to face any challenge.

Character

Camp is the ultimate character-building experience. It is a safe place to learn individual responsibility, to become empowered and to take care of oneself. Though camp counselors certainly provide structure, guidance, and supervision, a camper is responsible for her actions throughout the day, while assuming responsibility for personal belongings and making budget conscious decisions at the camp store, often for the very first time.
