Swim & Gym is our 8-week summer program packed full of all-day fun and activities for kids going into 1st-6th grade. Each day includes swimming, lawn games, crafts, singing, and Bible Time! Every year, we love watching our campers interact with the wonderful counselors and make new friends among fellow campers. Swim & Gym is such a special place to spend the summer creating many new memories.
In the summer, we offer Epic Thursdays. Every Epic Thursday is equipped with bouncy houses, water slides, and other fun outdoor games! Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we also travelled to various field trip locations all around the Bay Area (Great America, SF and Oakland Zoo, Raging Waters, Happy Hollow, Gilroy Gardens, and many others). We are happy to announce that in field trips are back starting in 2023!
We also hold the Leader in Training (LIT) program for incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th graders. We value LITs as our older, more experienced campers, and will support them in motivating and leading our younger campers throughout their time at camp. To help LITs achieve this goal, staff will model beneficial group management skills and give LITs the opportunity to take on purposeful roles within their groups.
Registration for Swim & Gym 2023 opens in March
WHAT AFTER Swim & Gym OFFERS:
Each morning, all groups spend some time bonding together through board games, get to know you icebreakers, art projects, and other fun activities.
Campers get the option of choosing one of several activities that we offer. Choice Time consists of the classic fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive learning categories. We make efforts to provide campers with a chance to explore beauty (creativity), abundance (entrepreneurship), and order (science) through our camp programming.
SNACK AND LUNCH
Swim and Gym provides 2 snacks daily for campers and staff at 10:30 a.m. and around 3 p.m. depending on afternoon schedule. Each snack offers a minimum of 2 food groups. To count, each food offered must have significant nutrition with a low fat or sugar content.
As with lunches, if your child has a food allergy or is a picky eater, please pack a snack for your child as well. Please pack a healthy lunch for your child each day.
During the afternoons, we have tons of fun activities in rotation for both our Olders and Youngers groups!
In the past, we have had access to both the Sequoia and PCC Community Center pools. We look forward to having pool access again this year! We have PCC gym and lawn access to play basketball or other fun games. Our program also offers chill time with arts and crafts back in the classrooms.
We offer Epic Thursdays, where we provide bouncy houses, water slides, and other fun outdoor games! Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we travelled to various field trip locations all around the Bay Area (SF Zoo, Raging Waters, Happy Hollow, and many others). This year we finally were able to plan some EPIC field trips for the campers!
Every morning, campers participate in Bible Time. This event is a fun Bible-based experience where we learn about Bible stories and themes, sing and dance, watch skits, and learn about God.
