For eighteen years, Weston children have been happily spending their summers at Camp Sagemont. The program has evolved over the years, to serve campers of all ages from tiny tots to teens. This summer will be no exception, as Camp Sagemont rolls out a menu of program offerings sure to appeal to everyone – campers and parents alike.
“Camp Sagemont is thrilled to introduce Camp Clubs to our traditional day camp program this summer,” states Camp Sagemont Director Danielle Guski. “Every afternoon throughout the summer, campers will have the option to participate in a Camp Club in their area of interest. This gives our youngest campers the sleep-away camp experience.”
Camp Sagemont has created clubs allowing children to explore their creative, athletic and even academic sides. Club choices include General Sports, Critical Thinking Games, Environmental Club, Arts and Crafts, Spanish and more.
Older campers will also have new options this summer. In addition to Camp Sagemont’s popular Adventure, Art and Science specialty camps, campers can choose Junior Lifeguarding Camp, Creative Writing Camp, and Drama/Vocal Camp.
“These three specialty camps offer campers the opportunity to investigate their interests in these areas,” explains Guski. “Additionally, each of these camps possesses leadership qualities and a specific skill. We will assist each camper in honing these qualities and take them to the next level.”
Both the Junior Lifeguarding Camp, as well as Camp Sagemont’s LIT Leadership Program, offer older campers the opportunity to experience possible future jobs. Campers enrolled in the Junior Lifeguarding Camp will be exposed to different water safety situations and raise their overall water safety awareness through hands-on assistance with swimming activities for Camp Sagemont’s traditional day campers.
“Our Junior Lifeguard campers will work on developing their own physical swimming skills through a variety of lifeguarding activities, which will enrich the future of each camper,” states Guski. “CPR and First Aid certification, lifeguarding skills and conditions that affect lifeguards on a daily basis will round out the focus of this exciting new camp program.”
