About Blue Camp

Blue Camp grew from the idea that all children need opportunities to play and engage in regular physical activity to support their mental health and well-being. This comprehensive recreational day camp for ages 7-12 combines developmental sports, outdoor learning, the arts, free play, and group games to create a fun, well-rounded, diverse camp experience. Two-week and one-week sessions are available, making summer planning easy.

Blue Camp is split into three age groupings to ensure safety and age appropriateness for all activities:

  • Cubs (ages 7-8):  Cubs explore a wide array of different recreational camp activities with a group of 10-15 other campers, led by trained and experienced Group Leaders. Each day, Cubs rotate through a diverse mix of activities which may include outdoor exploration, sports such as basketball and soccer, arts and crafts, and fun camp games. Only Cubs participating in two-week camp sessions participate in daily swimming lessons and aquatic activities. This does not apply to those with two consecutive one-week registrations. Available in two-week and one-week sessions.
  • Bears and Grizzlies (Bears ages 9-10; Grizzlies ages 11-12): Bears and Grizzlies have opportunities to sample an even wider array of elective activities appropriate to their age group. Choose from either two-week sessions where campers may build a customized activity schedule, or one-week sessions where campers are provided an activity schedule. Learn more about the Elective Activity Options available for Bears and Grizzlies. Swimming is only an option for two-week registrations. This does not apply to two consecutive one-week registrations.
  • *NOTE: When registering your camper, you may only select each activity once. Any campers who are signed up for the same activity at multiple hours will have their schedules manually changed based on availability to ensure that they are participating in six different activities.

Age & Eligibility

  • Cubs: Ages 7-8 by June 1, 2024.
  • Bears: Ages 9-10 by June 1, 2024.
  • Grizzlies: Ages 11-12 by June 1, 2024.

Camp Sessions and Themes

Camps are available in 1 and 2-week sessions. New to Blue Camp in 2024, each two-week session and the intersessions will be given a theme to make each week feel extra special! Campers arriving at camp will be greeted with themed decorations around camp, activities built around the themes, and staff sporting appropriate flair. We encourage any campers who wish to dress up on-theme to do so. Please make sure no items of value are included in their flair, in case they are lost during the camp day.
