Clearwater Summer Camp 2015
“Anything But Average”

2015 marks the 100 year anniversary of the City of Clearwater.  To celebrate this monumental anniversary, this year’s summer camp program will be all about the “C”.  C is for Clearwater, Camp, Centennial, Character, Community, and so much more.  Each week a different “C” theme will be introduced and could include anything from Carnival Week to Crazy Camp Competitions Week.  Additionally, each week a different positive Character Trait will be discussed and celebrated.  Campers will participate in all kinds of crazy games, creative craft projects, challenging sports, cool field trips, and captivating guest speaker presentations.  Campers will cultivate new friendships and create life-long memories under the close supervision of caring adults who are well trained and committed to providing the best summer ever.   In other words … this year’s camp will be “Anything But Average”!
