What is Camp Rec?

Camp Rec is a unique camp that focuses on creating a fun, safe atmosphere for kids to play and learn. Our daily program features sports, games, fitness activities, nutrition, crafts, swimming, field trips and camp performances all designed so kids will have an absolute, total blast. Camp Rec facilitators and counselors work to create a setting of exploration and discovery, where children build self-esteem and self-confidence and learn about teamwork and friendship. There are three principles that are woven into Camp Rec: safety - the campers' safety is our number one priority; monitoring - each camper deserves to have an amazing camp experience; and wellness - at Camp Rec we treat the children like our own.

What camps do you offer?

We offer a 10-week summer camp program, as well as Spring Break and Winter Break Camps. 

How old do the children have to be?

We accept campers ages 4-12.
