It is never a dull day when school’s out if you’re at Camp KROC! Summer 2017 is again set to be an exciting camp! Kids ages 6 thru 13 are welcome to sign up for nine weeks of fun, learning and adventure at the KROC. Camp activities include sports, theater, music, dance, and visual arts. Camp hours are from 8:30am – 5pm. Before and after care are available from 7:30am – 6pm.
ALL Camps will embark on an average of more than two (2) field trips per week. Many weeks will include three (3) trips. Destinations include, but are not limited to:
The Children’s Museum
Buccaneer Cove at Malibu Grand Prix
S. Cobb Aquatic Center (including swim lesson)
Sports camp will encompass all nine (9) weeks as campers are guided under the direction of a former Division I and ABA Professional basketball player. Teaching teamwork and good sportsmanship is the name of the game for summer camp. Your camper will participate in a wide array of sports including basketball, soccer, volleyball, dodgeball, and any other creation with a ball and competition. Sports camp costs $85 per week.
Our summer begins with a four (4) week theater arts camp. Stage direction, set design, and of course acting, will be on the menu which will culminate in a performance on Friday, June 23 at 6pm.
The next session is a two (2) week Kroc camp* that breaks from our normal programming as the children will get to experience Camp Grandview, an overnight camp in the woods of Jasper, north Georgia. Children from all over the region will come to discover nature, fresh air and fellowship. This Christ-centered camp is run by Salvation Army employees from all over the state. Camp Grandview runs from Monday, June 26 to Saturday, July 1.
The second week includes our July Fourth holiday closings, but is jam-packed with three (3) field trips and a ton of visual arts projects. Painting, drawing and creating crafts is on the agenda and a lot of time for campers to continue bonding with each other.
*These two weeks sold as 1 package for $100 per camper
Our Arts Camp culminates with a three (3) week camp centered around West African drum and dance. Professional teachers from An Ka Fo Drum & Dance Troupe will teach your camper(s) the rich history and culture surrounding the heart-pounding, authentic, traditional and ancient African dance, music and folklore. This camp will culminate with a vivid and rich performance on Friday, July 28 at 6pm.
Arts camp costs $100 per week.
