Summer Fun Days...for Tweens
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
Tweens is geared for the older child who is more independent. This theme based program mixes adventurous, active trips that usually only Tweens will experience. This is a less structured program but still supervised. At Summer Fun Days we want your middle schooler or future high schooler to have fun, play sports, games, swim and spend the day with friends while staying engaged and safe.
This program will be located at Wolfe Park unless otherwise announced. Drop off and pick up is located at the large covered pavilion at the pool side of the park. In the event of inclement weather, for everyone's safety, the program may take a trip to the movies or change location to Chalk Hill for the day. Parents or guardians will be notified of these changes via e-mail. PLEASE be sure your current email address is updated on your online registration account and can be checked regularly throughout the day and night. This is also how we will contact parents in the event field trips are running late.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THEMES AND ACTIVITIES CAN CHANGE AT ANY TIME.
Session 1 Fun and Fitness. Does your child love to be active, play, run, swim and jump? Then this is definitely the week they don't want to miss! This week is all about ways to stay healthy! We will fly through the trees at the Adventure Park, make healthy treats, and swim at the Wolfe Park pool.
Session 2 Independence Day Extravaganza. Tweens may only be at camp four days this week, but it is certainly a week to CELEBRATE! We will zip, flip, climb and jump at one of our favorite field trips, Brownstone Exploration and Discovery Park. Make sure to pack your lunch and trunks. Campers will end the celebration with a cookout to wrap up the Red, White and Blue celebration. Come along and join the fun!
Session 3 Pay It Forward. Every parent wants their child to learn and understand the meaning of giving back. This week is geared to help others and chip in where needed. We will be holding a food drive for the local food pantry and a shelter drive for animals in need. We are very excited that we will also be helping out at the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary and visiting the Merton House to help with lunch service.
Session 4 Ready, Set, Race. Let the games begin!! Campers will spend the week getting ready for a battle of colors at Field Day! Which team will have the shortest time in the obstacle course? Who will be the last two in the water balloon toss? We can’t wait to see which team will take home the prize! The competition continues as we take a trip to play paintball!
Session 5 Splish, Splash. This week is sure to be a BLAST! Who doesn’t love water games to cool off, gathering shells at the beach or swimming in the pool at Wolfe Park! Tweens will also be getting soaked while tubing down the Farmington River!
Session 6 New York State of Mind. Who doesn’t love the Big Apple? Whether you are interested in the dinosaurs or different mammal groups, this is sure to be an exciting week. We will be visiting the Museum of Natural History and taking in some sites of the city.
Session 7 Party In The USA. This week is everyone's favorite, it’s carnival week! There will be cotton candy, sno cones, pinatas, and more! A water slide, DJ, and slip and slide too! We will also be taking a field trip to Lake Compounce!
Session 8 The Fun Is Not Over Yet. Summer may be winding down, but at Summer Fun Days, the FUN continues! Campers will be chilling out at the movies, warming up at the beach and splashing at the pool. The fun just keeps coming right to the last day of camp. Your tween will not want to miss this week.
