WHAT IF MY CHILD IS NOT ATHLETICALLY INCLINED?

The Breezemont schedule is balanced and focused on child development. The core program consists of swimming, creative arts, adventure, and athletics.

Enrolled families will receive a detailed list of everything you should send with your child on the first day.

HOW DO YOU CELEBRATE BIRTHDAYS AT CAMP?

If a camper has a birthday during the summer, we have a special birthday celebration. During morning announcements, the birthday camper raises the flag and has a photo taken, and then the entire camp sings our camp “Birthday Song”. Throughout the day, our photographer takes a number of candid photos to make the day memorable. There is no need to send in any food, treats, and/or gifts because everything is provided. If any campers in the group have any allergies, we will accommodate their specific needs for the birthday celebration.
