Come for a week or two...

...or for the entire summer!

Each week at Camp Kids Place is like a different camp. Many favorite camper activities are part of them all, no matter which camp you choose. Here's what we've planned:

 

(1) Holiday Camp - July 3, 5-7

Everybody loves a holiday, and we'll celebrate another one each day. Monday is Independence Day, of course. After a day off for July 4 we'll return on Wednesday for everybody's birthday celebration, Thanksgiving (with all the Bowl Games) on Thursday and a summertime Christmas on Friday!

 

(2) eXtreme Camp - July 10-14

If you like things just a little bit different, then this week is for you. We’ve packed the week with perfectly safe yet amazing and unusual activities you’ll never forget. This week includes the “Great American Shaving Cream Fight.” There are all kinds of things to climb and bounce and race. You’ll experience extreme activities in a safe but really fun way and exciting way. It’s really cool!

 

(3) Adventure Camp - July 17-21

This one is a Camp Kids Place first! Each camper will choose one special adventure they will enjoy each morning. Not matter what your interests, we'll design this camp especially for you!

 

(4) Studio Camp - July 24-28

Camp becomes "Studio A" as you experience lots of things you see on TV. From sports, where you are the competitor - to the game shows, where you are the contestant - to talk shows, where you are the special guest. Compete in the annual "Kids Place Got Talent" competition! Help your team produce your "Team Movie" to be premiered at our Independent Film Festival Friday afternoon. What a week!

 

(5) Cosmic Camp - July 31-August 4

Spend a week on a distant planet as our crafts, activities, competitions and parties are all out of the world. Come bravely go where no camper has ever gone before!

 

(6) Jedi Camp - August 7-11

Come learn the ways of the Force as you become a part of the Rebellion against the Empire! Lots of competitions and games make this camp something that could be the highlight of your summer!

 

(7) Civilizations Camp - August 14-18

Every day we'll visit a different civilization at camp. There are enemies to fight, cities to build, and challenges to conquer. Spend a day in Rome, along the Nile in Egypt, and who knows where else as we travel from one civilization to the next. Experience fun and adventure across the millennia!

 

(8) Boot Camp - August 21-25

You'll enter as a Private and work your way through the ranks with fun and crazy activities that will challenge you in amazing ways. You will choose your specialty and earn awards that will show your skill. The physical and mental challenges will build your company (team) and prepare you for whatever is ahead. When graduation from Boot Camp comes on Friday afternoon you won't believe it's over and wish it could last all summer..

 

 

 

And while we're talking about camp...

We asked parents of our campers from previous summers to share their thoughts about camp. Here’s some of what they told us..

  • It was wonderful and my son absolutely loved it.  Before it even ended, he was begging me to send him again next year!!
  • I really love the diversity in camp counselors.  It was a wonderful reflection of our community (or how our community should be!).  The counselors seemed really enthusiastic and engaged.
  • My son loves the camp. He loves all of the different activities and he loves that he can pick out his own snacks. You guys are super organized and have a lot of great things for the kids to do.
  • My children are always excited and happy.  I don't know how to make it better.
  • Camp was very organized and my daughter enjoyed the weekly themes and activities as well as the nice and friendly counselors. It's very convenient (and unheard of) to offer before/after care on the fly. Thanks for everything!
  • This was our second summer and we will definitely be back next year...with little brother in tow! I really love that while participation in each activity is encouraged, the kids aren't forced to do anything. For some reason this year Ben decided that he didn't want to do the water slide so he was able to play soccer or basketball. The squad leaders are always so upbeat and energetic, great role models. The check-in/check-out process is very well organized and Marilyn always greets everyone with a smile. We had two friends join us this summer because we loved it so much last year that we couldn't help but recommend. They were just as happy as we were.
  • It really brought our son out of his shell. After we moved here from another state in the middle of the school year he had begun to become hesitant to make new friends, but after attending nearly all the weeks at camp he has a new sense of self, as well as a stronger personality, indicating a higher self-esteem : ) THANK YOU FOR LETTING US BE A PART OF YOUR PROGRAM!!!
  • Without knowing any kids the first week my daughter was there, she came home EVERY day with something exciting to share with us. She absolutely loved it! The counselors were great, the staff was warm and welcoming every morning - they even made her birthday special
  • I love how warm, supportive and creative the entire staff is. My husband and I were shocked that we could find a program that was so creative and innovative for about the same price as other camps that offered only basic programming. We called it "Arlington's best kept secret" because it was actually possible to get a spot (or two) in Camp Kids Place! (We also called it a kid's utopia because, well...water slides and moon bounces? What's not to like!) However, I think the word is getting out...next year, we will sign up right away. Camp Kids Place is the only camp that my children want to attend.
  • My children love Camp Kids Place! They cannot wait to get there in the morning, and are bummed when I pick them
  • As parents we absolutely loved the weekly themes & the incredibly well-organized drop-off/pick-up process. We were blown away by the feeling that everyone at camp wanted to be there and wanted the experience to be a positive, healthy, life-affirming experience.
  • This is our third year at Camp Kids Place. Your camp is my son's favorite place on earth. He told me the other day that he had the best dream and when I asked him what it was about, he got a big smile on his face and said, "I was back at camp."
  • Thank you, thank you for the best week of the year. We were having a family chat about the summer and asked our camper to rate all of the experiences of the summer (and there were many!) Camp Kid's place came out number one!!
  • It is a fabulous place. My boys love all of the activities! They loved the laser tag and foam pit especially this year. The counselors seem fantastic. As a former camp counselor, I am very impressed. It was great to observe the interaction between the kids and the counselors. Your camp is incredibly organized, well run and exceptionally creative. You do a great job making it fun for the kids!
  • I couldn't be happier with a camp. From the friendly, responsible (and responsive) staff to the convenient hours, the fun weekly themes and the smooth administration of it all (the Owens make it look effortless!), this camp has exceeded our expectations two years running. But the best endorsement of all is how happy our daughter is when we pick her up. You can't ask for better than that!
  • It was the first time at Camp Kids Place. I liked the fact that everything was very organized. We were kept up to date on what was going on. The facility was clean, we could see pictures online each day and the staff was wonderful. My daughter really enjoyed it.
  • Thank you so much because of you my child had a blast this summer.
  • My kids loved everything about Camp Kids Place! Especially the snack bar :) It was the first camp in three years that they wanted to go to through the end of the week. (At) most camps they are complaining by Wednesday about finishing the week.
  • Extremely well organized and an excellent value.
  • This is a great camp! They are highly organized and creative. Each week is different and fun. The water slide is a big attraction.
  • The obvious organization is appreciated. So many camps and kids programs just feel like barely organized chaos. The thought put into the different aspects of the program are a great comfort to those of us who are type A personalities.
  • My children enjoyed themselves at camp, I was confident they were appropriately supervised and cared for, the camp offers great hours for working parents, and was very reasonably priced.
  • As a parent, I appreciate the organization of the camp. From the moment we walked through the doors, we encountered an overly helpful staff. Very easy to enroll in before and after care. The things that normally a parent would worry about, was non existent. From a program standpoint, my son enjoyed the week. He talked about the camp every night. Paper airplane contest, pool, water slide. A great experience!
  • Each week we had a new and exciting adventure starting on Monday. It provided for variety but at the same time comfort because it was the same process and people week after week. The outside entertainment included with each week’s theme added an element of intrigue because they were always correctly tied to the theme of the week. Our son learned independence and responsibility by using the ID/money card for his snack shop purchases
  • We had a wonderful experience at Camp Kids Place this summer. My daughter has already asked to do more weeks next year. From the moment I stepped in the door, I liked how organized the camp was. You definitely got a feeling that everything was in order and your child was going to be well taken care of all day. The counselors were all engaged and caring. The theme each week added so much to the experience and the dress-up component was fun for the kids. You did a great job of bringing in unique activities to supplement the regular ones--loved the extra equipment that you had outside during Cosmos Camp and Champ Camp. For one week we got an email the Sunday before laying out the week's activities. This was fabulous and helped with the planning of the week and both setting expectations and talking about activities with my child. I absolutely loved that you posted photos for us to see what happened during the day. And, from a financial standpoint, the value was incredible!
  • Not only was the content of the camp great, the price is unbeatable. With three kids in camps, cost becomes truly critical.
  • There were so many things that our family liked about Camp Kids Place. It was extremely organized, well run, GREAT counselors, interesting, imaginative, creative and FUN. Plus, the price was wonderful. So many camps charge an arm and a leg and you feel ripped off. Camp Kids Place put on a wonderful camp and you felt like it was worth every penny. I enjoyed dropping my daughter off knowing she was so happy to be there and that she was safe and being looked after in every way. I loved all the "extras", like the fun contests, the water slide, being able to view the camp pictures and prizes like the limo ride. My daughter still talks about that limo ride. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we will be back next summer for sure!
  • My daughter said this was the one camp that she definitely wanted to do again next year. Good balance of indoor/outdoor fun/crafts.
  • The immediate sense of belonging and enthusiasm. My sons enjoyed the activities in Genius and Cosmo weeks. They enjoyed the counselors and outdoor water slide. I appreciated the ease of check in and out.
  • My boys (ages 7 and 9) had a blast. Having never done a full-day camp before, I was unsure what to expect when I picked them up. The first word out of both of their mouths when I asked how the day had been was an enthusiastic, "AWESOME." They loved the competitions, the water slide and the arts activities. They made great new friends, felt very comfortable and had tons of fun! I loved how well organized the sign in and out was and the name tags. It felt very safe and secure for a parent leaving their children.
