Kids Rule Camp 2017

Kids Rule Summer Day Camp promotes educational experiences and recreational activities that provide a high quality, fun, and safe learning environment. The goal of the camp is to teach each camper the importance of developing lifetime sports and recreational skills while having fun. Educational emphasis is placed on promoting the importance of a lifestyle of health, fitness, and safety. The camp opened its doors in June 1998. It is our goal to provide recreational, motivational, and educational experiences for children going into the first grade through the sixth grade. We offer kids a supervised, positive environment where they can learn and grow through a variety of activities. We feel that camp experiences are an integral part of a child's total education, which offers an opportunity for children to build long lasting friendships while learning valuable life lessons.

Kids Rule offers a variety of themed weeks, instructed activities, Monday introductions, and fun Friday specialties. Each week's games and activities are intended to work off of the theme assigned to the week and allow for the children and counselors to have fun creating new games using the theme as a basis. Daily activities include swimming, arts & crafts, fitness/nutrition, cooperative games, sports, counselor directed activities, and much more. Different sports will be taught each week to better aquaint the children with rules, equipment, and method of play for the sport. Sports are subject to change based on childrens' ability and instructors' preferences. Funtastic Friday's are meant to add a different dynamic to the camp week and offers the children an opportunity to have fun off Rowan's campus in the form of a field trip or stay on campus for some classics such as the annual talent show and slideshow presentation at the end of the summer.

There will be a total of 5 weeks offered for the Kids Rule Camp for the Summer of 2017.
