Calling all campers! Unplug with Imprints Cares Summer Camps where it’s great to be a kid. Imprints Cares is excited to offer camps at three convenient locations: Meadowlark Middle School, Union Cross Elementary School, and Imprints Cares Downtown for our campers with special needs.
Where else can your child try new things in an encouraging setting, explore nature, disconnect from devices, and engage in games that encourage imagination, play, and problem solving? Tyler Foster, Imprints Cares Enrichment Coordinator, explains, “Our summer camp team has been hard at work creating age-appropriate, themed activities since November. Our goal is to provide children with memorable experiences that promote teamwork and encourage creative play.” Given the wide variety of themes and activities, your children will enjoy themselves no matter what their interest are. This summer’s themes include “Pirates of the Carolinas,” “Heroes Assemble,” “The Wonders of Weather,” “Start Your Engines,” and the always popular “Survivor VIII.” Campers will go on many different field trips, which include Discovery Place, the North Carolina Zoo, Nascar Hall of Fame, and Durham Museum of Life and Science. Each themed week features 2-3 field trips, engaging activities, and exciting art projects.
Brooke Thompson, director of summer camp, said, “Our camps are designed to immerse children in new activities and experiences. We work to create opportunities for children to make memories and build friendships with other campers.” She continued, “Your child will be nurtured and encouraged by the same team of highly qualified teachers and staff who work in our before- and after-school programs during the school year.” Staff undergoes extensive training and is excited to implement this year’s interactive, theme-based weeks. Carolyn, an Imprints Cares parent, said, “My daughter so enjoys attending summer camp. She comes home every afternoon tired, but excited to tell me about what she did that day. It is such a relief to know that she is enjoying herself while I am at work.”
Our camps are open from 7:00 am. – 6:00 pm. daily, making them an ideal choice for working families. Families may also select their weeks and locations. Imprints Cares summer campers are divided into teams based upon their age. The Orange Team consists of rising kindergarteners through rising 2nd graders; rising 3rd graders through entering 6th graders make up the Blue Team. Teams alternate between base camp and field trip activities weekly. All camp supplies, field trips, and snacks are included in the affordable weekly rate. Your child will enjoy a summer filled with discovery, play, and fun! Register today!
