Camp Themes

The Story of Summer is written by those who experience it! 

Our campers will build their stories together each week as they compete, create, and rediscover summer! The chapters below are only a glimpse into the many adventures that await. From swimming to fieldtrips to spontaneous dance parties- each week is packed full of surprises and fun!

 

Chapter 1: Step into the Summer  (June 1 – 4 Closed Monday)  

Our Heroes have just arrived at camp, they have heard rumors of a story that has been lost to time. They will work together to discover the new world around them and piece the story back together. Beware though, everything is not always as it seems… 

Campers will spend the week meeting the counselors, making new friends, and building their camp flags to wave during inter-camp competitions!

  

Chapter 2: Unlock Your Super Power (June 7-11) 

Oh no! An unusual foe has entered the camp and campers are being trapped in time!  Our Heroes must unite to overcome the obstacles ahead! What is your superpower?  Is it your speed? Is it your creativity? Is it your mind? Prepare for an epic showdown to save camp! 

Campers will have many opportunities to test their skills and find their strengths. They will use their special abilities to complete challenges and exit the Y Escape Room! 

  

Chapter 3: Mysterious Adventure (June 14-18) 

After expelling our villain from camp forever, our campers are ready to settle in and relax at camp. Until… they discover that someone has gone missing without a trace. Campers must search and analyze clues to solve the mystery of the missing staff. 

Campers will work with Y camps throughout Stark County to share and analyze clues, culminating in what might be the biggest game of "Clue" in Y history! 

  

Chapter 4: Burning Off S.T.E.A.M.  (June 21-25) 

Our Heroes have shown time and time again that they have what it takes to overcome any obstacle... or do they? Our counselors are being infected and turning into zombies! Can Campers find a cure before it’s too late? 

S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Campers will be using these skills to build, create, and inspire in an action-packed week with a surprise ending!  

  

Chapter 5: Let’s Celebrate! (June 28-July 2) 

The 4th of July is just around the corner, and celebrating our independence means celebrating ourselves and the heroes that have come before us. After a chaotic first few weeks in camp it’s time for our Heroes to relax...and celebrate! Even heroes need a break, right?   

Campers will dive deep into the things which make them similar and that which makes them unique in this week of celebrations! The legends of camp will come to life in plays and skits written, created, and performed by campers.  

  

Chapter 6: Crazy Creatures (July 6-9 CloSED MONDAY)  

This new world is filled with strange and unusual creatures. A spontaneous migration has brought all sorts of exotic animals to camp. What has driven these animals here and how can our Heroes  return them home?

This week will be filled with wild animals (real and imagined!) as campers discover what it means to take care of our planet. Older campers will convene a model UN to discuss how to handle the problem. 

 

Chapter 7Color Clash (July 12-16 

Our Heroes are starting to feel the effects of spending so much time in the sun! A camp wide battle is on the horizon, and only the brave will make it out in one piece. Heroes must choose their colors wisely, as only one team can emerge victorious! 

Campers compete for points throughout the week in various competitions and challenges, with a week-ending explosion of color that is sure to leave campers messy!  

 

Chapter 8Blizzard Beach (July 19-23) 

After the Camp Peace Accord, our Heroes return to find a strange cold front has hit camp and winterized everything! They must work together to find the Yeti that caused the storm and drive him away from camp. 

 From team building challenges to a Yeti hunt, this week may be the "coolest" one yet!

  

Chapter 9: Alien Imaginarium pt.1 (July 26-30) 

Our Heroes are faced with the wildest event of the summer-aliens have invaded camp! Our Heroes must use all of the skills they have acquired throughout the summer and use past adventures to problem solve a way to defeat the Aliens and free camp once and for all!
