Teen R.E.C. Camp (ages 11 – 14, for campers entering 6th grade through exiting 8th grade)

This camp is for participants who have aged out of traditional day camps (Kiwanis Camp, for example). They are ready for a little more freedom, adventure and new options all under the safe supervision of our qualified camp staff. Teen R.E.C. goes out on a new adventure daily (see example weeks below) in the surrounding suburbs. We have had participants sign up with friends AND solo registrations who have made NEW friends. All trips and activities are SNAP worthy & INSTA Friendly. Our staff is CPR and First Aid certified with over 40 hours training in safety procedures, age development, activity planning, terrible parent puns, social media monitoring, meme making and laying down the law. Your (pre)teens may be away from you but we’re that home away from home you were looking for this Summer!
