Day Camp 2019 Dates & Themes
71% of the earth surface is covered in water, wouldn’t it be great to be able to explore its depths? Camp Whitcomb/Mason has partnered with Stillwater Diving LLC to offer a SCUBA specialty camp to make this a possibility. Over 5 days campers will work with Stillwater Diving’s experienced instructors to obtain their open water SCUBA certification, all while under CWM superior supervision. Campers will join typical camp programming for lunch, and camp games when not blowing bubbles under the water. Registration for SCUBA camp does not guarantee certification. Campers must complete about 10 hours of book work prior to the start of class. Campers must demonstrate a clear health history, be able to swim 200 meters without stopping, tread water for 10 minutes and demonstrate SCUBA related competency taught in the class. Students must provide their own swim suit and towel. A mask, snorkel and fins and boots must be purchased from Stillwater Diving LLC prior to the start of class, Stillwater Diving will provide all other necessary equipment. Camper parents will need to complete multiple health histories for the business purposes of Camp Whitcomb/Mason and Stillwater Diving. - Cost $525
Cute Cuddly Creature CampAnimal lovers will diverge from typical camp programming to horse around during this specialty camp. Campers will spend most of their day at the petting farm helping with farm chores and interacting with the animals. Through the week the campers will take field trips to connect with other animals and meet animal focused professionals. As this is still Camp, we’ll join typical camp programs for swimming, lunch, and games now and again. Close toed shoes are required.
Treat Yourself CampBeing a kid is hard! During this specialty camp, campers will participate in programming devoted to pamper themselves. They will do their hair and nails, make beautiful jewelry, and participate in complex art projects. It will be a relaxing and self-focused week!
