Can We Brag? Our Summer Camps Rock!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Give your kids a memorable summer by enrolling them in a safe and affordable recreation camp offered by the city of Santee Community Services Department.
“We’re able to offer a quality summer recreation program because our staff is well-trained and motivated. In fact, they’re phenomenal” said camp supervisor Anne Morrison.

The city offers a variety of programs tailored to fit different age groups and interests.
Traditional day camp for children entering grades 1 through 5 features a  weekly scheduled that includes a field trip, a swim day and a day of outdoor activities at Santee Lakes.

X-Factor day camp is for tweens and teens entering grades 6 through 9. The weekly schedule includes a field trip, a swim day, table game tournaments and outdoor activities such as fishing or bike riding. Campers have a say in selecting activities, allowing them freedom of choice while still being guided and supervised by staff. To promote personal growth, X-Factor campers who exhibit responsible behavior can earn special privileges.

Santee also has a renowned Jr. Camp Leader program for youth entering grades 8 through 12. It includes a week-long training where participants learn how to supervise and mentor younger campers. This program is ideal for young people looking for an opportunity to gain work experience, leadership training and professional development.

Our Daily Deals offered during early summer from June 27 to July 6 allow parents and kids the option to pick and choose which days fit into the family’s schedule. Multi-family member discounts are also available for Santee Day Camp and X-Factor Camp.

Our specialty enrichment camps run the gamut from woodshop to skateboarding to performing arts. Some athletic camps offer those interested in team sports an opportunity to reach the next level of skills and fitness under the guidance of local high school coaches. We also offer sports camps aimed at introducing children to a new sport while teaching teamwork and sportsmanship.

Working parents can take advantage of our new extended hours’ program for specialty camp participants.  For a nominal extra fee, youngsters can participate in supervised activities until evening pick-up time.

Probably the best reason to enroll your kids in our summer programs is because they’re flat-out fun.

“The goal of our summer programs is to give kids a truly memorable experience,” said Morrison. “We’ll send them home tired – guaranteed."
