Jump-In Summer Blast
Day Camps 2017
Summer is a blast at Canby Grove. Come be apart of all the outdoor action we can fit in 6 hours everyday. The week will be jam packed with activities that will include swimming, water games, field activities, theme days, crafts, adventures, fun snacks, friends and much more.
Campers can pick 2 electives that they will take part in T, W, and TH of the week. These focused activities allow the kids to take part in activities they are most interested in doing. You can pick the electives when you register for camp. Some of the electives have an age limitation and space limitation on number of kids that can take part. We will not guarantee any friends being placed in the same group for these electives. It is on a first sign-up basis and is separate from the group combinations for the rest of Day Camp. Each class must have at least 5 campers signed up to take place. Please pic an alterantive elective in case the first two choices are full or do not have enough campers registered by camp time.
Team Sports: This elective will include several different team sports such as basketball, soccer, flag football, capture the flag or volleyball played throughout the
Outdoorsman Sports: This elective is for the camper who isn't necessarily into team sports but still wants to keep moving. Campers will experience activities that could include, archery, fishing, geocaching, frisbee golf and more. (some activities will vary each week)
Videography and photography: Campers were learn basics of taking good photos and photo compostition. They will used digital cameras to take photos around camp of nature and people. Their photos will be printed and a project with the photo will be done on Thursday. Campers will also make fun videos and show the their project and photos to the camp on Friday.
Miniature Gardens: Campers will be creating a miniature garden scene of their choice, in a container of their choice, using sticks, moss, rocks, plants and moldable clay for furniture, houses, pathways or wherever their creativity leads them. We have found the motor skills to create these gardens individually is much better with older children. LIMITED to first Seven 3rd-5th graders.
Cooking: The campers will make simple cooking projects that can be made and cooked within the hour assigned. Each camper will help in the creating of a yummy recipe with a partner. Creations will be cooked in our commercial kitchen with the aid of our chef and will be sampled by the campers in this class.

Crafts: Fun projects with mod podge, painting, glitter, glue, wood, small canvas projects, and more.
Science: Campers will enjoy trying all kinds of simple experiments. Lava mountains, bouncy balls, slime, and much more.
All kids will take part in team games and swimming through out the day. They will get plenty of exercise even if you do not sign them up for a sports rotation.
Summer Blast ADVENTURE CAMP
6th & 7th Grade
JULY 10—14 one week only
(Limited to 30 campers)
This camp is designed with the "tween age" kids in mind. Your camper's week will be filled with all things camp. Swimming pool, field games, archery, river float, river slide and art projects all geared toward older kids. This camp will take place the same time and hours as Summer Blast 1.0, but will be in a different location with a completely different schedule and activities than the younger kids. Why sit home and play video games inside? There is adventures waiting.
Information for all day camps:
We are a non-denominational Christian based camp. Our day camps are geared to the community at large no matter what their religious belief. We do have club meetings everyday in which your child will be taught simple verses, songs and simple stories from the Bible.
GRADE Levels are determined by what grade your camper will be attending in fall of 2017. [A camper can decide to go a grade lower but we do not allow campers to go up a grade.]
ESSENTIALS: We suggest that every camper come with a labeled bag or backpack with a few essentials inside: swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, water bottle and lunch. If your camper has special dietary needs please pack a snack or two as well. Many Campers will come with their swimsuit already on and clothes over the top. This makes transition for pool time easy. Just make sure there are extra essentials in their bag for coming out of the pool.
SNACKS: Every day at camp a snack is provided for each camper. We try to have options for children that have dietary needs such as milk intolerance or gluten free needs. However, if your child has special dietary needs you may want to pack a special snack for your child. The alternative snacks are not always as fun as the regular snacks we serve, ice cream sundaes, s'mores, cupcakes, popcorn with candy, carmel apples and Hawiian Shaved Ice are a few examples of common snacks we serve.
LUNCH: Every camper must bring their own lunch. Please put your childs name on their lunch box or sack.
LOCATION: All Jump-in Camps will be held on the main side of Canby Grove Camp.
1st-5th graders: For Drop-off and pick-up please drive into the main entrance and take the first left. There will be signs and staff to direct you.
6th-7th graders: For Drop-off and pick-up please drive into the main entrance and look for the basketball court to the right. There will be signs and staff to direct you.
For Pick-up please be sure to pick up your child no later than 3:30. It gets very lonely for a child to be the last one left at camp. Please park and come to the registration table to check-out your child.
SWIMMING: Campers will get a chance to swim in the Canby Grove Pool almost everyday. It makes transition time to the pool smoother and faster if you are able to have your camper wear their swimsuit under their clothes to camp. They can change after swimming to regular clothes if they prefer. Often times after swimming we will still do water games in the field so many kids like to leave their suit on all day. Please advise our staff at check-in (and on the health form) as to whether your camper is a strong swimmer or needs help. If you would like to have your camper use a life jacket we suggest you send one with your camper. We have a limited number of life jackets on property, however we feel a personal life jacket that fits appropriately is much better.
HEALTH FORM: We can access the online health form here on our secure website in two ways. Once you have registered your camper and hit the submit button, a link to the health form with be on screen. You can choose that link or choose pay now link and access the health form under register tab above at your convenience. No camper will be allowed to check-in to camp without a health form filled out. Thank you for your help in this matter.
