Scamper Camp offers a short and sweet camp experience for kids age 5 – 7. We’ve also opened our doors to adult campers to come along with the child scampers. Moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandmas and grandpas are invited to camp at Gull Lake Centre for the weekend as well. Scampers are between the ages of 5 and 7, campers must be 18 years of age or older and have completed a criminal record check with vulnerable sector check.
Theme Meal – Pajama Party
That’s right, you get to wear your PJ’s & favorite teddy bears to supper time! So bring your funnest ones! Creative onesies are most definitely welcome. You can bring your bed head and story books with you too!
What to Expect
Around 8:00 we wake up the campers and start off the day with some short wake up activities or games such as pillow fights, relay races or other fun challenges. Campers are usually still a little drowsy but they wake up just in time for breakfast. For this age, some campers like to wake up super early, so we have bonus gym games with our morning watch staff for the early risers so the rest of the cabin can continue sleeping.
During this two hour block of the day campers participate in many of the different activities we have at camp. Anything from tubing, climbing, drama, arts, archery and bumper balls, just to name a few.
Lunch & Tuck
After eating lunch in the dining hall it’s time for tuck – a shop with candy, drinks, camp clothing, and other cool stuff. Campers preorder from the tuck shop at breakfast time and have the order delivered to them right after lunch for them to enjoy afternoon.
We head down to the beach while the afternoon is still young and spend a few hours in the sun. At the beach campers can go tubing, build sand castles, play beach volleyball, frolic in the water, or just relax on the beach while having a great conversation with a friend.
After the beach there is time set aside for campers to hang out with their cabin and get a taste of the different things camp has to offer. All of the activities from skills time (tubing, climbing, arts, games, etc) can be done as a cabin.
Once every week we have a theme meal. Keep yours eyes open for when we announce our theme meals so you can put together a costume and come have a blast at supper!
Each night we play a massive wide game with the entire camp participating. Favorites include Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Civilization, and many others.
Mug Up is just a code word we use for an evening snack.
Everyone gathers for some time to worship together. The speaker will give a talk or someone will share their testimony during this time.
After some wind down time spent hanging out and getting ready for bed everyone hits the sack for the night. If you are an adult camper with your little scamper, it’s your bedtime too! You are a camper, just like your kiddo.
