SACC Programs - Summer

Camp Discovery 2016

Join us for an exciting, adventure filled summer at SACC's Camp Discovery. Camp Discovery provides rising 1st - 7th graders opportunities to participate in a variety of fun experiences that appeal to the artist, performer and athlete in every child. SACC's experienced and dynamic teachers are dedicated to guiding children through activities designed to nurture their creativity and develop their talents and skills. Located in 27 convenient locations, each camp offers three cabins to explore. The Artist's Cabin provides the opportunity for children to explore a variety of art forms such as textile art, acrylic canvas painting and the world of 3D art and sculpturing. Campers will experiment with watercolors and also be introduced to the science of art. Children with an interest in theatre will have opportunities in the Performer's Cabin to choreograph dances, bring legendary stories to life, illuminate the stage with shadow light performances, and develop clues during a week of mystery theatre. In the Athlete's Cabin children will be introduced to the sport of rugby and enjoy the opportunity to develop their skills in basketball, soccer, and baseball or show their speed during track and field week. Camp Discovery also provides opportunities for campers to participate in outdoor play, swim trips, live performances, professional sporting events and other field trips. We hope to see you this summer at Camp Discovery - a great place to be a kid! More details here.
