THE CAMP BLUE EXPERIENCE
We have between 15-20 activities to choose from each camp, with campers selecting 5 activities to make up their daily schedule. Your child participates in what they actually want to do!
With an extremely low staff ratio of 1:6, your child will receive hands on, guided learning by industry professionals who are carefully handpicked, friendly, fun, and entertaining. All of them hold current Working With Children Checks and are First Aid/CPR qualified.
We understand that the most important thing to a child is to have fun at camp, so you can be assured that while your camper is learning and developing their skills, they will also be having a blast! We’ve also got plenty of additional camp games, songs and skits to ensure every child leaves every day exhausted. That’s what makes Camp Blue unique.
