Campers gain self-confidence and team-work skills during creative play and sports activities. Through field trips and art and science activities, we encourage curiosity. Our daily swim lessons build confidence and independence by mastering progressively higher levels of swimming skills. Our team of dedicated directors, activity specialists and counselors are committed to the positive growth of your child.Through intentional engagement, our staff reinforces making and keeping friendships, resolving conflicts peacefully and working cooperatively with others – all skills your child will need throughout their life.

Each age group rotate through many activities each day/week that are centered on a weekly theme. Different weekly themes keep the camp fresh throughout the summer and encourage campers to expand their areas of interest. Special activity such as educational programs, field trips, and instructive entertainers are highlighted each week.

General Camp activities include: daily swim instruction and free swim, organized team building games, arts & crafts, nature/science activities, and mini-clinics for sports like tennis, soccer, baseball, karate and basketball. All activities are age appropriate, except swim instruction which is progressive and based on the individual’s level of competency.  Sample SOMAPY Camp Daily Schedule
