Summer Camp Mid March Report

i Mar 21st No Comments by

This year, we will celebrate our 50th Anniversary with the best summer yet!  We have added some new and exciting activities to the schedule this year, and we can’t wait for you to join us!  We will kick off the summer with our annual Family Fun Day, on June 3rd.  We want everyone to experience the Magic of Camp K!  All of our activities will be open, including horseback riding/interaction, ropes course, swimming, fishing, field games, BBQ lunch, and more!  This event is free for families with kids who have disabilities.

Summer Camp officially begins on May 29th, and runs through August 4th.  We have weeks available for all ages, from 7-99!

Residential and Day Campers will enjoy a new, giant outdoor pavilion, where we can eat our meals altogether out in the fresh air!  They will also enjoy the traditional Camp K activities, including horseback riding, swimming, fishing, canoeing, ropes course, campfires, and much more.  They will also enjoy some exciting new activities, including new games and group sing-a-longs.

Trip Campers includes a new trip to St. George, where they will explore the red rocks and visit Tuacahn Center for the Arts.  We will also continue the campers favorite trips to Park City, Zion, Yellowstone, Bear Lake, and Jackson Hole.  Trip campers will stay in campsites, where we will enjoy the great outdoors through hikes, exploring the parks, and cooking meals around the campfire.

For those who love horses, we will have 3 weeks of Horse Camp – where the campers will get to spend extra time with their favorite animals every day, in addition to experiencing the other activities at Camp K.!

Partner camp has some exciting things in the works, including camps focused on 21st Century Skills, science, art, and some collaboration with Microsoft and the University of Utah!  We are also continuing our Partner Camps with great organizations, such as the Natural History Museum of Utah, Bad Dog Arts, Red Butte Gardens, Tracy Aviary, This is the Place, and Hogle Zoo.

All campers will have the pleasure of meeting our counselors and staff from all over the world – including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, England, and Poland!!  We are also excited to welcome some part-time junior counselors and staff as part of our Summer Work Exploration Experience and Training Program (SWEET) during Summer Camp.  These students/staff completed our Vocational Rehabilitation Program.
