Camp Blue is the reality of husband and wife team - Jon and Sam Bell – and it was their ultimate dream to create an American Style Summer Camp here in Australia.
Sam and Jon Bell have a vast background in the leisure industry and have long held a true passion for working with kids. They both spent time abroad, particularly in the United States, and worked for some years in the American Summer camps. Sam loved it so much that she stayed there for 6 years, before heading to Croatia to help start up the Summer Camp program with CCUSA.
It was always a dream for both of them to offer Australian kids what the Summer Camp tradition had to offer. They saw that the community was crying out for a dynamic program to keep kids occupied during the holidays, whilst providing a safe and trusting environment for parents to leave their children each day. So in 2010, this dream became reality – Camp Blue was born.
Our administrative team is unlike any other. From the time of Camp Blue’s inception, they have shared the same vision of what our camp community should be and each member of the team brings unique skills and experiences to the Camp Blue family. Having known and worked with each other for more than ten years, our camp’s administrative staff is a strong, creative and cohesive unit that strives to continue to make Camp Blue the best day camp experience available.
For us, camp is much more than just a ‘vacation care’ - we get out amongst the daily activities teaching some ourselves and getting to know the kids. Many of our campers have in fact, become part of our staff family and pass onto the campers their own experiences of why camp is such an important place. We are so proud to have played a positive role in their ‘growing up’.
At Camp Blue, we understand what it is to entrust the care and development of your children into a new environment and we aim to make this as easy as possible for you and your camper/s. It doesn’t take long to feel part of the CB Family!
