KIDS CAMP ACTIVITIES
Our days and nights are packed with fun-filled
educational and recreational activities!
Children who attend Channel 3 Kids Camp participate in a variety of activities and choose their own self-selected activities throughout the week. Campers develop new experiences while enjoying old favorites!
Here are some of the activities we offer and the benefits.
One of our more popular activities is Archery. Archery is beneficial for improving upper body strength, focus and attention skills, and patience. Setting and achieving goals boosts confidence and self esteem. Archery teaches the importance of safety, it teaches everyone to be responsible for one another but also for the equipment they are using.
Arts & Crafts
Arts and crafts improve children's coordination, improve fine motor skills, improve visual processing abilities and build self esteem. Arts and crafts are a relaxing and calming activity.
Athletics/Fun & Games
Physical activity is the most obvious benefit of sports and athletics. Participation in sports and games also builds self-esteem, confidence and social skills. In addition children learn to deal with small setbacks in a calm and rational way. When outdoors doing physical activity the staff are very mindful of keeping the children well hydrated.
High and Low Ropes/ Rock Climbing
The ropes courses provides challenge to children. Overcoming challenge gives an extreme boost to a child's self esteem. Ropes course activities require focus and problem solving. Instructors are certified and focused on physical safety.

Swimming is great exercise as it uses all of the body's major muscle groups. In addition it builds strength and coordination. Children are given swim lessons and taught water safety in addition to daily free swim.

Campers work in groups to write and produce videos that focus on the camp community and its activities, while learning skills including camera operation, computer audio and video editing. Weekly group presentations boost sense of fun, progress and self esteem among peers.
In addition to physical benefits, martial arts builds concentration and self confidence. Teaching respect for others is an integral part of martial arts practice.
One of the greatest benefits of dance is that it sparks a child's imagination and nurtures individual creativity in a unique way. Dance classes share the joy of physical self-expression in a supportive and structured setting. This can have a positive impact on children who have limited physical abilities, who act out or who have a difficult time sitting still.
