Camp Philosophy and Daily Schedule

The Camp @ Cleveland Park Club offers a low-key, warm, and welcoming setting. This informal program combines old-fashioned, self-directed play and organized, hands-on, guided activities.  Campers expand their interests, increase their skills, and make lasting friendships in an atmosphere reminiscent of the days when neighborhood children of all ages spontaneously gathered for jump rope and Capture the Flag.

The camp is intentionally small with a maximum of 40 campers and 10 counselors attending each week. All activities, with a few exceptions, take place outdoors.

The morning begins at 9:00am when campers and counselors gather on the wrap-around porch. Together with guest educators, they participate in fun and educational projects that vary with each week’s theme (see full list below).

At 10:30am, snacks are accompanied by word games, storytelling, and reading aloud. The remainder of the morning is structured to provide flexibility and variety and to allow campers to go at their own pace. They may choose to master an individual skill, join a group game, play quietly, or exercise vigorously in running games. Counselors supervise activities such as tag, jump rope, hopscotch, and colorful chalk-drawing. Around 11:00am, free swim is offered. During pool time, campers may choose also to make crafts projects or play in the large beach-like sand area.

At noon each day, campers gather to eat their BYO lunches, visit, read, and play with Legos, puzzles, board and card games, jacks, ring toss, and table soccer. Group swim classes are available in the afternoon at the Cleveland Park Club's pool. Campers may enroll in swim classes for an additional fee. More information about swim instruction can be found here. Other campers will enjoy an additional free swim period and more afternoon fun including games, crafts, and group and individual play.
