Awesome Adventure Camp

For Kids Entering Grades K-6

Theme days, special events, field trips and swimming at Coral Cove Water Park keep your child excited about the camp experience all summer long. Campers visit water parks, entertainment centers, movie theatres, baseball games, and more each week. Our weekly special events include magicians, inflatables, animal shows, gymnastics, and more. Campers enjoy outings to local parks, Coyote Crossing Mini Golf and McCaslin Splash Pad. Our counselors are great role models and their top priority is to provide a safe place for your child to have an active, rewarding summer. You want the best for your child and our goal is to provide a summer filled with memories that last a lifetime!
