This summer, Camp Adventure campers will create murals for display at the SFSC Highlands Campus and local businesses.

South Florida State College’s Camp Adventure returns this summer with a new lineup of learning activities for children in grades 1-5.

Camp Adventure takes place Monday-Thursday, June 12-July 28, at the SFSC Highlands Campus. Cost is $157 per week and includes breakfast and lunch Monday-Thursday. Optional field trips and camp programs are available on Friday. Camp is closed the week of July 4.

The 2017 Camp Adventure begins with mural week in which kids create murals that will be displayed at SFSC and in area businesses. Week 2 takes kids on a Mission Impossible scavenger hunt for treasures hidden around the Highlands Campus. During week 3, campers produce and star in a production of Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky” at the Alan Jay Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts.

After the July 4 break, Camp Adventure explores Highlands County’s hometown heroes and learn about good citizenship. During week 5, campers form their own tribes and take on “Survivor”-style mental and physical challenges.  The final week of camp celebrates good times with wacky games, dress-up days, and a pizza party.

Camp starts at 8:15 a.m. each day. Parents can drop-off children as early as 7:30 a.m. and pick them up by 5:30 p.m.

The Camp Adventure registration packet includes an application, complete itinerary, and camp rules. For more information, email communityeducation@southflorida.edu or call 784-7388.
