WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING!!
Anxiety about Starting Camp
In most situations, parents have more anxiety than their kids. Children are used to new situations, but we as loving parents over-worry about our kids. Will they be OK on their own? Will we do the little things? Will they get lost? These are normal thoughts, but fortunately you chose a great camp, and we will take great care of your children. Please make every effort not to transfer your inevitable stress and fears over to your children. Your child needs your absolute confidence from now until the 1st day of Camp. After the first few days, it will be smooth sailing.
Every week is different with a unique theme, special activity, and exciting fieldtrip. If more then one "specialty" is offered, campers get to choose a "specialty". All specialties are lead by counselors that have a strong background in the activity. To find out more about the themes click on:
Everyday will be packed with activities. Below is a list of activities that your child can participate in throughout the summer.
Arts & Crafts
All of our Art and Craft Projects are geared towards the theme of the week. They're not your run of the mill projects. They are exciting and creative. It will inspire every ones creative juices to flow! Some projects can be completed in one day while others will take several days.
Liquid Sunshine Activities
Have no fear! When Liquid sunshine comes our way, we have plenty to do inside. We have your standard inside board games, the gym and aux. gym for free and organized play and our classrooms and the cafe for our art projects. Oh, and don't forget we have plenty of INDOOR Special Events.
Most days CABOGI will utilize the pool at Beach Middle School for 1hr and 15mins per day. Times are usually from 1p-2:15p or from 2 to 3:15p. Campers are REQUIRED to bring with them in a BAG or DUFFLE BAG with a swim suit and a towel. Campers who forget their swim suits will not be allowed in the pool with their street clothes.
Safety is always a concern and a priority. Chelsea School district will provide certified lifeguards at all pool activities. All counselors will be either extra “eyes” on deck or in the pool with the campers. Furthermore, a strict buddy system will be enforced.
On the first day of camp, camper’s swimming ability will be assessed. Those who pass the swim test will be allowed in the lap pool. Those who do not pass the swim test must stay in the shallow pool.
Pool time is considered free play or slightly structured time.
Every week several camp wide "Special Events" are planned. The week's theme and specialty activities are kept in mind when planning the special events. Here are some examples of "Special Event".
