A Typical Day in the life of Fun Camp

  • Campers enjoy morning activities and sports on the turf field, and the new, state of the art playground.
  • Mid-morning the campers attend their themed workshop.
  • Each week, Lower School Teachers come on board to share their “Summer Workshops" based on specific themes like Robotics & Technology, Computer Animation, Science, and Arts & Crafts.
  • After lunch, campers spend time exploring the community with daily field trip excursions off-campus.
  • Campers end the day with activities back on campus until pick-up time at 3:00 or 4:00 p.m.

"King Fun Camp provided a safe, enriching summer experience for our son. He loved the counselors and activities and especially the day trips off campus. It provided a wonderful balance of sports and learning activities to keep his interest engaged. Looking forward to another summer at King."
