Summer Camp at The Village Academy
JOIN US FOR A SUMMER FULL OF FUN, ADVENTURE, AND EXCITEMENT!
Summer at The Village Academy provides a four-acre informal setting for summer learning and exploration. We have provided a summer camp experience like no other in Northeast Florida for over 37 years. Children enjoy a wide range of fun and innovative daily activities that are based on exciting weekly themes along with team indoor/outdoor activities and sports, individual and team sports, daily swimming and mega jump pad, weekly field trips, and an indoor air-conditioned gym. Campers enjoy a variety of activities which promote learning, team building, volunteerism, friendship skills, and personal growth all while having fun in a safe camp environment.
The Village Academy Summer Camp is designed for children ages 5 through 12. We offer 8 different summer camp groups divided by age. Campers are carefully placed into a group with a consistent camp counselor and counselors become mentors who approach celebrity status with their campers by the end of the summer. A nutritious lunch and two snacks are included for your child. American Red Cross certified lifeguards are on duty during daily swimming and swim lessons are available. We promote physical activity and a healthy lifestyle in a safe and fun environment. We utilize our large indoor air conditioned gymnasium and indoor camp rooms to provide a good balance between indoor and outdoor time. Our superior hydration policy along with our two swimming pools and water activities ensure that children stay cool during summer days.
Campers begin their mornings with a Camp Round Up that includes camp songs, fun “challenges”, skits, and competitions. Campers then begin their daily rotations that include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities, project based arts and crafts, Fun with Food cooking projects, experiments, and indoor/outdoor sports and games that are centered on fun weekly themes.

SUMMER CAMP STAFF
We screen and select our summer camp counselors with careful consideration. All camp staff have cleared an FBI Level 2 Background screening, and are certified in First Aid and CPR. Many of our counselors are either attending college or are college graduates who have experience working with children in a variety of settings. Camp staff will additionally attend pre-camp training focusing on safety and security, as well as all aspects of our camp programs.
