HOLIDAY WEEK (June 12 – 16)
We welcome the start of summer as we celebrate holidays from around the year. Our themes will incorporate traditional and fun activities and dress-up opportunities as we kick off the summer. Join us for a week filled with cheer and festivities as our campers create new friendships and memories with the beginning of summer of 2023!
PIRATE WEEK (June 19-23)
Yo Ho, Yo Ho a pirate life for us. We will break out our treasure maps as we navigate through the week. Our campers will participate in everything from doubloons, to treasure hunts, and more. We will talk like pirates, make “camp-style grog,” and maybe even walk the plank. Don’t forget to dress like your favorite pirate on Friday as we finish the week “pirate-style.”
WIZARDING WEEK (June 26-30)
We will kick the week off by sorting our groups into the various houses for a week of wizarding competition and fun. Our campers will design their own wands, create potions, and work together through the various wizard challenges all week long. Of course we will play some quidditch, enjoy “butter-beer,” and more as we master our skills and cheer on our house in anticipation of Friday’s All-Wizard Tournament.
WILD WILD WEST (July 3-7 / CLOSED July 4)
YEE HAW! We are going to wrangle up a week of fun as camp transforms into the Wild Wild West! Let’s get ready to learn some chuck-wagon recipes, practice our roping skills, and more. We will write some “cowboy poetry,” sing some campfire melodies and practice our square dancing. Don’t miss out on Fridays’ fun as we put on our best western wear for a good ole’ barn dance.
COLOR GAMES (July 10-14)
RED vs. BLUE!!! Always the most popular week of summer, it’s time to break into our two teams as we join the fun-filled competition known as Color Games. Everything will be Red vs. Blue from our field games, pool and water competitions, and so much more. We will sing, cheer, and chant as team spirit, cooperation, and teamwork are essential. Our week of competition will conclude with our Color Games Finale on Friday with a day full of competitions and crowning the winner.
CARNIVAL WEEK (July 17-21)
We all love a carnival! This is a week filled with juggling, face-painting, dunk tanks and more. From making caramel apples and home-made ice cream, to decorating our group booths, this week will be filled with excitement as we “clown around.” On Friday, the camp will come together to enjoy our summer carnival to enjoy games, prizes, laughter and silliness.
VT’s GOT TALENT (July 24-28)
We all have talent, whether it be dancing, singing, comedy, or group based. This week we will let our talent shine as we gear up for our Friday Spectacular. Every day, we will showcase the different talents of our campers, leaders, and groups as we applaud the talent and work on our group acts. Only one act will earn the golden buzzer, but all of our campers will shine!
GAME SHOW WEEK (July 31 – August 4)
Let’s roll the dice and play some games….Camp Style! From Valley Trails Jeopardy and Name That Tune, our days will be filled with fun! This week will be filled with everything from Hungry Hungry Hippos, Giant Twister, to Human Foosball Football. Our opening and closing circles will feature various game shows with prizes galore. Get ready to test your luck, knowledge, and skill as we play our favorite games at Valley Trails.
WACKY WORLD OF SPORTS (August 7-11)
We could play all of the sports and gamers by the regular rules or the “normal” way, but that would be so boring! Let’s run the bases backwards, play volleyball with beach balls, and change everything up this week. Our campers will help us write our own rules and create wacky versions of our favorite sports, games, and camp activities. What better way to finish the summer than to be silly and have tons of fun as we all get wacky!
