    At Elk Grove Kids Camp we take pride in bringing new and exciting experiences to our campers. Whether they join us for a day, a week, or a month there is always a new adventure.
    Take a moment to learn more about our daily activities and routines.

    -How to Prepare for Camp –

    How to Dress

    • Campers are  to wear regular clothing to camp with closed toed shoes- Not swim cover-ups or flip flops
    • Campers should wear their swim attire under their camp clothes – choose a swimsuit your child can remove easily themselves so they can independently use the bathroom. 

    What to Pack – Use a reusable grocery bag, backpack or duffle bag with all items labeled with your campers name.  Cubbies are 12”x12” please do not over pack for your child.

    • Lunch and a few extra snacks (prepared. Ready to eat)
    • Reusable water bottle ( we will be going on outings every morning.  We can refill water at camp)
    • 1 Towel
    • Sunscreen
    • Hat and/or sunglasses
    • Slip on shoes for the pool deck and using the restroom
    • Undergarments for after swimming
    • Life Jacket (can be kept throughout the week at the pool)

    Toys, games, sports equipment, electronics must stay at home.  No exceptions.  If it is necessary for you to contact your child during camp,  you must call the office at 916-513-7015.  Campers will not have their phones available to them.

    Activities at Camp  

    All Activities have been designed with all age groups and interests in mind. 

    Indoor Activities

    When your camper arrives, there will be free choice time while everyone gets adjusted for the day. Some of these activities include; movement and play such as balloon volleyball, other activities like floor tic, tac, toe or puzzles, and for our art enthusiasts an area to be creative. We also have a more quiet area; our library,  for the camper who would love to start their day in our reading library. Once everyone has arrived for the day; around 9:00am we’ll begin our social group activities to learn more about other campers.  The could be activities that involve moving and running around or something a bit slower paced.


    Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM – 11:15 AM the campers will be going on an outing.  Off camp grounds,  we have several beautiful nature walks within blocks of Sunshine Swim Center as well as parks such as Mendoza Park.  During our walks and trips to the park there will be games and activities planned that relate to our theme for the day.

    Also throughout the day, campers will be given time outside; on-site in the play yard where they can choose for a variety of activities like basketball, hopscotch, four square, drawing with chalk, or jump rope.

    Snack Times – 11:15 and 3:15

    Creative Art and Science

    When we get back from our outing and finish our snack, it’s time for creative arts.  This is a time where everyone works independently or in small groups to complete an art project, or maybe conduct a science experiment, or learn to play music or write and perform a play, or build a skyscraper with toothpicks and marshmallows. Every day is truly different.

    Lunch Time 12:15

     Swim Time – Every day from 1:00-3:00pm 

    • Ratio of campers to leaders is 6:1 while on the pool deck
    • Campers will be encouraged to play in the water during free swim. (a portion of the time will be structured games and activities while other time will be free choice.)
    • Campers who are not proficient swimmers must wear a life jacket at all times of free swim. Families may choose to bring in a life jacket or the Sunshine Swim Center does have a limited supply of loaner vests.
    • We can keep the jacket at the pool all week. We will hang to dry.
    • You may choose to add on private swim lessons for your campers if you have booked for the full-day/full week option.  These lessons will be at 12:30 for a 25-minute lesson Monday-Thursday for the week,

    Additional Information about swim time

    • On your campers 1st day, they will be asked  to complete their swim test.
    • Swim test…
      • Without goggles camper will jump into deep end
      • Swim away from wall 7 yards
      • Roll over and float on back for 10 seconds
      • Roll to stomach and then swim to side of pool
      • Pull themselves out of the water without the use of the ladder or stairs
    • If they are not able to complete these skills efficiently, they will need to wear a life vest during free swim time.  A swimmer can request to be tested again on subsequent days if they so desire.
    • Life vests are not used during swim lessons

    We end our day similarly to the way we  start it with free choice time, low music and quiet conversations.

    Please consider taking a tour if you have additional questions.  We would love the opportunity to meet with you and show you our campus.
