Shake N Wake
How do we start our camp each day? Each morning all the staff and campers meet in the main auditorium to kick off the day with music, singing, dancing, games, special teaching and instruction for the events of the day. Shake N Wake, guaranteed to kick off the day in the right way.
Let your creative juices flow. Express yourself, paint a picture, build a masterpiece. Each activity is designed to allow individual growth and personal accomplishment, whether constructing your own project or performing in front of your fellow campers.
Can you imagine, oozing lava from a volcano, or launching two liter soda bottle rockets high in the sky? Mad Science is definitely a hands-on messy experience but all controlled and safe of course. Campers really have a blast exploring how things work and they enjoy this interactive and captivating activity.
We stay on target by focusing on fun, participation, physical fitness, skill development and teamwork.
Activities suitable to the physical abilities of the various age groups include: Basketball, Soccer, Football, Frisbee, Bombardment, 9 Square in the Air, Wall Ball, Floor Hockey, Four Square, Kick Ball and trips to Curtis Memorial Park, just 7 miles north of Rocky Run.
Jump in the pool, splash a counselor, or rip down a waterslide, fun in the sun never stops whenever water is part of a camp day. Quality lifeguards and instructors insure a safe and fun environment.
Weekly pool trips to Curtis Park Pool are scheduled for all age groups. Boating and creek adventures at local lakes may happen as well, and watch out for Wet-N-Wild games that happen on campus.
Summer At The Ridge staff takes pool safety very seriously. We understand the potential risk with water activities and prepare our staff to provide quality supervision and care. All children must complete a swim test administered by pool lifeguards before being permitted to swim in deeper water. Children will swim in water depth appropriate to their size and swimming ability.
Children who have not learned to swim will stay in either the fenced in 1-foot pool or in the 3-foot pool while wearing a life jacket.
Parents, life jackets are available at the pool (you cannot bring your own life jacket- the parks will not allow it).
We believe in the value of engaging children's minds, bodies, and hearts with activities and trips away from campus.
Field trips for this summer may include:
Curtis Park Pool
Chuck E Cheese
Putt Putt Golf
Seven11 on 7/11
These field trips are included in registration. These are not additional costs to parents and campers. It looks we may offer two trips per week.
Field trips may be limited during the last week of camp (Wacky Tacky OMC Week) for team competitions.
During the last day of camp, there's a cookout and snow cones after team competitions!
