Lunch and Snacks

Parents are responsible for packing a lunch. Lunches should NOT require microwaving or refrigeration. Soda and candy are strongly discouraged. A snack will be provided in midmorning and midafternoon. Lunch will be provided every Friday.


Campers will be going swimming on scheduled days during each session. We will swim in the Recreation Pool. Swim time is after lunch, from 2-4 pm. Certified lifeguards will be on duty. Campers will be evaluated on swim ability prior to swimming.

Field Trips

Occasional field trips to various local destinations are planned. Campers will be picked up from and returned to Fitness Plus by the conclusion of the trip. Campers will also receive a T-shirt that should be worn on field trip day. An activity fee of $6 will apply for field trips.


On the first day of camp, parents will be given a schedule of planned activities. This basic schedule is subject to change, based on special events and particular days of the week. Camp is 8 am-5 pm, Monday-Friday.


The Summer Camp theme is “Adventures in Time Travel.” Each week, campers will be introduced to a new adventure.
