Adventure Day Camp

Ages

The camp is designed for children aged 6–12. The groups are created according to age and are in a 10:1 camper/counselor ratio for 6 and 7 year-olds, 10:1 for children 8 and 9, and 10:1 for those 10 and up. All activities are developmentally appropriate and vary so that each child is able to experience all of the activities.

Staffing

"Best Counselors in Chico." Our camp leaders and counselors bring a variety of skills and experiences to the camp in an effort to provide the best possible camp experience. All of our camp leaders are CPR/AED/First Aid certified. All counselors are Chico State students that are studying in a youth-related field.

Camp Schedules

All camps are one week in length (Monday-Thursday) and are scheduled throughout the month of June and July. Many of our most popular activities will repeat from week to week.  Campers can expect to participate in high-energy games and some arts/crafts projects.  Our focus is on participation and teamwork, not competition.
