Clearwater Summer Camp 2016
“The Place to BE!”

Looking for a fun and safe summer camp that your kids will LOVE? Look no further. Clearwater Summer Camps are the Place to Be!

We hire the best Counselors Each one is carefully selected based on their experience and love of children. Most of our staff are college students or teachers who return year after year to the delight of their campers.

Clearwater Camps are the place to be for fun! Each week campers will enjoy a wide variety of fun activities including; fantastic field trips, goofy games, spectacular guest speakers, creative craft projects and other awesome activities. Additionally, each week a different positive Character Trait will be discussed and celebrated. Campers will build new friendships and create life-long memories under the supervision of caring adults.
