One of Camp Sagemont’s most popular programs is its Marine Camp, which is being expanded to a four-week program this summer. According to Guski, this allows for a more in depth study of the ocean. “It will include more extensive field trips to various locations such as the Smithsonian Marine Center and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center to observe sea tanks and visit a sea turtle rehabilitation center.”
All campers at Camp Sagemont enjoy fun-filled field trips. Guski promises campers will return to many of their favorite destinations including Rapids Water Park, a Marlin’s baseball game, DJ Scratch, Young At Art, Planet Air, and tubing at CB Smith Park.
Guski says there are plenty of surprises in store for campers this summer. “The element that will have our campers most excited this summer is the anticipation of what will happen next? How will color war be introduced? Who will be in the gazebo on the opening day of camp? Last year, Alvin and the Chipmunks greeted our campers on opening day, and then Spiderman and the Green Lantern appeared on campus to kick-off color war. There is no telling who will be here this summer.”
The one thing that is certain is that Camp Sagemont will be one of the most incredible experiences a child can have. “Camp Sagemont embodies the entire camp experience and recognizes that summer camp is a special and powerful time in a child’s life,” states Guski. “This is when new friendships blossom, old friends are reunited, challenges are not only faced but conquered, and the lifelong memories of holding a snake, laughing with a best friend, dancing in the talent show, and participating as a team in a color war battle are made.”
She says Camp Sagemont provides children with these memorable camp experiences, which help shape, mold and develop campers into strong, self-confident individuals with spirited character.
All this is accomplished in a fun, safe, nurturing environment. “At Camp Sagemont, campers are encouraged to develop their individuality and explore their talents, interests and values through new and fun challenges, all while being closely supervised by a staff of experienced, caring counselors. Parents should feel confident that their child or children are safe, having fun and developing life-long memories and friendships.”
Camp Sagemont begins the week of June 9th and runs through August 8th. Camp hours are 9am to 3:30pm, with early care and after care available. All programs are held on Sagemont’s Lower School Campus in Weston. To learn more about Camp Sagemont visitwww.campsagemont.com or call (954) 384-1894.
