Thank you to Christ Church Episcopal School for sponsoring this content.
As the weather starts to warm up (well, eventually), summer camps for the kids may cross the minds of parents who are starting to think about ways to not only entertain their offspring but hopefully keep them learning during the summer months when school is out of session.
Christ Church Episcopal School’s Summer Encounters in Greenville is the perfect place to start your search for summer camps because they have everything – like 260 specialty camps – that kids would need to have an awesome summer. A quick search for my own rising Kindergartner came up with so many options, from cooking classes to tumbling, tennis, soccer and lacrosse camps to science and tech classes, unicorn camp, and even a class on pet care.
Exciting Camps, Classes and Trips
There are over 260 specialty camps offered for rising K4-Grade 12 at Summer Encounters, camps for curious kids, in athletics, academics, art, science, technology, cooking, drama, music, exploration, service learning, and field trips.
If I didn’t have to do adult things every day, I would totally sign up for one of these!
If your child doesn’t attend Christ Church Episcopal School, no problem. The 1,400 campers every summer are from 90 local schools and nearly two-thirds are not CCES students. It’s a great chance to not only have a blast during the summer but also make new friends and get involved in a new community.
Campers have all kinds of options. Want to be a Hollywood star? Try one of the acting camps, Camp Comedy or Green Screen Adventures. Want to be an inventor? Try the Recycling Makerspace, Tinkering, App Design or Rube Goldberg Engineering Camp. How about learning to be a skateboarder? There’s a class for that. My personal favorite is the Life Skills camp, a personal finance and practical skills camp for teens (need to learn how to change a tire?).
The options are nearly limitless. Use this link to check out everything that Summer Encounters offer. Want to see for yourself? You can with this video:
Convenient, Affordable, Reliable
Most of the camps are half-day but can be paired morning and afternoon so kids get in a full day of fun. There is early care and late stay available as well.
The camps are affordable as fees range from $155-$285. There are 11 weeks to choose from, starting in early June and running through mid-August.
Summer Encounters are led by college-educated adults who are also experts in their field. In fact, most of them are teachers. Assistant counselors also work with campers and they attend extensive training.
Summer Encounters camps meet at the state-of-the-art Christ Church Episcopal School and make use of the school’s 72-acre campus, amazing athletic fields and Performing Arts Center.
Lastly, CCES even provides snacks for campers but they do need to bring their own lunch.
