 2022  Black Creek Adventure Weeks

(Please know that we'll try our best to stick to the scheduled themes,

but due to unforeseen circumstances, activities are subject to change)

 

June 27-July 1: Blast off into Summer

Explore the galaxy and discover constellations!  Build a telescope, create sun catchers and model rockets.  Make your own portable planetarium.  Enjoy

a day at the beach, complete with water games and relay races.  

July 5-July 8:  Brilliant Builders

Become an architect and build an American Indian irrigation system, an elevator,

or a cardboard city.  Design and build a water balloon launcher, a marble track, and animal marionettes.  Cool off and build rock sculptures after a hike and picnic at the Old Brewster River Mill.  

 

July 11-July 15:  Holiday Fun in the Sun

Create a winter wonderland, make gingerbread houses, bake and decorate cookies, and make old fashioned paper ornaments.  Play reindeer games and hunt for candy canes.  Make edible ornaments to feed the birds.  Enjoy frozen hot cocoa with peppermint sticks.  Try to solve the escape room,  and explore a new beach.   


July 18-July 22:  Bugs, Bats, and Birds 

Build a bug hotel and explore the habitats of bats and birds.  Construct  a birdhouse or a bat house.  Plant a pollinator garden and visit a nature center.  Stop for a swim and become a true nature detective!  

 

July 25-July 29:  Circus Shenanigans

Lions and tigers and bears…oh, my!  Clown around with face paint, costumes, and puppets.  Learn to juggle and walk a tightrope.  Prepare a circus parade complete with stilt walkers, a lion tamer, and a circus master!  Take a break at a local beach for some fun and frolic in the sun.  


August 1-August 5:  Chuck Wagon Adventures

How did pioneers survive on the open trail?  They cooked their food over an open fire.  Learn how to prepare and enjoy a feast on the trail!  Cowboy stew, chuck wagon beans, cheesy campfire potatoes, and campfire berry peach cobbler are on the menu.  We will still have plenty of time for summertime fun and a day at the beach. 

Here at the Fairfield Community Center, we focus on community, a sense of self and joyful exploration of local resources through art, sports, the natural world, music, and good ol’ fashioned summertime fun.

Campers will gain self-confidence, new friendships, and lifelong skills in a careful balance of planned and unplanned opportunities for learning and growth. The camp day will be divided between instruction from caring counselors and visiting local dignitaries, and opportunities for free exploration in the camp’s rich collection of games, sports, science, art and nature activities. Field trips to the beach, hikes, and berry picking will open doors to Franklin county’s abundant local and natural resources. Most of our time will be spent outdoors this summer.

 

Our multi-age camp population (5-12 years old) allows children to reach across grade levels to forge new friendships. Our creative and inspired high school and adult counselors will help campers thrive in a broad range of areas, while our familiar setting and community-based camp provides the steady routine, high expectations and the safety children need over summer vacation.
