The Washington Township Park takes pride in offering camp opportunities to youth ages 5 years old who have started kindergarten through 11 years old in our Avon community and surrounding areas .
All of our camps will keep your child engaged in a safe and fun environment that will have them wanting to come back for more. Camp offers a safe and positive environment where children gain confidence and learn new skills while enjoying fun-filled days outside exploring our beautiful park. Our camps provide opportunities for children to disconnect from technology and become more physically active. Campers experience success and become more confident by participating in team and individual activities. In addition, our campers become more independent by learning to do things on their own all while improving their social skills and making lasting friendships.
Avon Kids’ Camp follows the American Camp Association’s 1:10 guideline for camper/counselor ratio.
Camp will consist of our Camp Director and Lead Counselor in addition to our qualified counselors who are all CPR and First Aid Certified to care for your child. To ensure proper supervision and age-appropriate activities, campers will be divided into groups by age. Campers are all together at several times throughout their day though for large group activities.
Time blocks are prepared prior to camp outlining games, crafts and activities that will take place on a daily basis. Every forty-five minutes to an hour of the day is identified with a specific activity geared to providing a positive camp experience. There is also plenty of time for free play!
