Summer Clubs at the Recreation Center

Our 8-week summer day camp series begins on Monday, June 6, and goes through Friday, July 29, 2016. Age range for this program is 7 years (or entering 2nd grade) through 12 years (or entering 6th grade). All camps meet at the Recreation Center, 920 Boulder Drive, with a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 40 children accepted each week. Our staff/child ratio is 1:10. Each week will be theme-based, and will include roller skating on Monday afternoons, swimming (outdoors when weather permits) on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, an area field trip on Wednesday afternoons, and a theme-based movie on Friday afternoons. Fees include all activities, field trips, and a morning and afternoon snack. Each day, send your child with a sack lunch, water bottle, light jacket, sun screen, lip balm, and a hat to protect them from the sun. If your child is attending on swim days, don’t forget to send their swim suit, towel, and goggles!   

Please note: Early bird registration for Summer Camps will begin on Monday, May 9, 5-8pm, in the SACC room. Registrations are taken on a first come-first serve basis. Payment for each program week secures a space for that week. To register, parents/guardians first complete the Summer Camp enrollment form. The completed enrollment form, photo consent form, and payment, must be returned to the front desk of the Recreation Center to complete enrollment. For each week, you will have three registration options: mornings (8am-12:30pm), afternoons (12:30-5p), or full-days (8am-5pm). Based on a sliding fee scale, mornings are $35, $50, or $65/wk. Afternoons are $35, $50, or $65/wk. Full-days are $75, $100, or $125/wk. Summer Camp will not be in session on Monday, July 4; please note the fee for this week has been pro-rated to reflect a 4-day week. You may register for every week, or choose individual weeks, but registrations are for full weeks; there is not an option to register for individual days. To be considered for the sliding fee scale, you must provide current proof of income and a statement of household size at the time you submit the enrollment form. You will be billed the full fee until this information is provided.

Week at the Beach

Date: June 6-10

What could be more exciting than living on a beach for an entire week? Exploring all that happens on deserted islands, there will be sand, pirates, and more sand… oh my! Let’s kick off the summer with beach-themed crafts ranging from making our very own leis, sea glass candy, and tiki masks, to fun and challenging beach games such as the limbo, coconut bowling, and a hula hoop contest! Campers will end this week with a theme-based field trip to Undine Park, for a scavenger hunt to find pirates’ buried treasure and fun in the sun at the City of Laramie Splash Pad.

Wide World of Sports

Date: June 13-17

Through hands-on activities which focus on sports and health, and include arts and crafts, we will combine physical fitness awareness with active team fun and friendly competition. Campers will “learn the ropes” of a multitude of games from around the world, such as basketball, American football, European futbal (soccer), croquet, badminton, and many more! This week will include a themed-based field trip to Laramie’s very own War Memorial Stadium on the University of Wyoming campus. 

Camp SACC’s got Talent

Date: June 20-24

Calling all undiscovered super stars! Whether your talent is acting, dancing, singing, performing instruments, working magic, or telling jokes, we need you this week! Discovering unforeseen talents in every one of us, we will make our own musical instruments such as popsicle stick harmonicas, and partake in theatre, dance, and music lessons. This will all be in preparation for our theme-based field trip to the University of Wyoming black box theatre where we will host a talent show allowing campers the opportunity to show off their skills for parents and friends!

Dinosaur Digs

Date: June 27-July 1

Looking back to years and years before our time, we’ll discover the secrets of, and life before, the era of dinosaurs. We’ll create active volcanoes, clay dinosaur prints, and even hatch our very own dinosaur eggs! We’ll learn about the Mesozoic era and the three periods of dinosaurs that make up this era; Triassic, Jurassic, & Cretaceous. We’ll be using all of the aspects of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) to do this, but you’ll be having too much fun to even notice that! This week will include a themed-based field trip to the UW Geology Museum located on the UW campus.

Magic Mania

Date: July 5-8

Now you see it, now you don’t! A week packed full of dragons, fairy tales, magic, tricks and illusions, bringing to life the stories of wizards and witches, and transforming each SACC kid into one of their very own. We’ll experiment with a variety of potions and spells including Harry Potter recipes that will bring magic to life. Kids will have the opportunity to craft their own wands and fairy dust while participating in a magic trick workshop! This week will include being entertained by a magician’s show!

Lights, Camera, SACC!

Date: July 11-15

Hollywood stars here and there, inspiration and imagination everywhere… get ready for a week of timeless characters. Coming soon to SACC, campers will get to experience their favorite characters come to life, exploring the realm of fantasy. We’ll host a costume party with re-enactments of favorite scenes, including a red carpet ending of an awards ceremony from activities throughout the week. Kids will be given the opportunity to act out scenes from movies in a game of charades, or practice their artistic abilities by playing Movie Pictionary, along with a SACC version of Guess Who. This week will include a field trip to the All Points West laser tag and family fun center.

Under the Sea

Date: July 18-22

Explore the oceans during this week of sea creatures, submarines, and the many wonders of what covers 70% of our planet… water! Campers will craft jellyfish sun catchers, homemade snorkel masks, their very own socktopus, and oceans in a bottle, just to name a few. Arts and crafts will be intertwined with active games as well, ranging from sharks and minnows to shark attack, so to please all of our campers. Whether you are active or crafty we have activities for you. This week will include a theme-based field trip to the one and only 3D Cave (virtual reality room) in the state of Wyoming, located on UW’s campus!

Go for the Gold

Date: July 25-29

Coinciding with the Summer Olympics, this week will be packed full of friendly competitions ranging from group activities to individual challenges. Including, yet not limited to, team relay races, crafting our own country flags, lighting of the Olympic torches, as well as a timed race on the aqua challenge! Campers will learn how to be a team player in a fun and caring environment. This will all lead up to our closing ceremony on the last day of camp, with prizes based on participation throughout the week/summer. This week will include a theme-based field trip to the Wyoming School of Gymnastics.
