Salvation Army Kroc Center’s Camps Help Kids Beat Summer Boredom
It’s only a matter of time before someone mutters the dreaded words of summer: “I’m bored.”
Ugh. There’s a fine line between “mom” and “cruise ship director” when it comes to the freedom a summer schedule offers.
I love my kids dearly, but I don’t feel the need to constantly provide magical, fun entertainment for them–especially all summer long.
Thankfully, the Salvation Army Kroc Center is here to help! Making summer memories has never been easier with their wide variety of Kroc Camps (and there’s a perfect camp for each kid in your family).
Start the Summer Camp Excitement Sooner With Pee-Wee Camp
Summer camps tend to be focused toward elementary aged kids, but Pee-Wee Camp at the Kroc Center is a great choice for your 4-5 year old who isn’t quite ready to go to camp all day long.
Pee-Wee Camp offers a half-day program (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM) designed to introduce kids to the camp experience. Pee-Wee campers still get to do all the things regular campers do, but just for a shorter period of time.
Some of the activities your Pee-Wee camper will experience are arts and crafts, swimming, recreation, and so much more! They will also receive a Kroc Camp t-shirt and get a snack each day. What a great way to get kids excited about summer camp!
