Beyond Camp Zephyr

Beyond Camp Zephyr Age Requirement

Grades: going into 6th-8th grades

A summer all about FUN and PLAY!

The fun of Camp Zephyr doesn’t need to end when you move on to Middle School! Join us this summer as we launch Beyond Camp Zephyr, a day camp experience for youth grades 6th-8th. Campers are invited experience all their favorite Camp Zephyr activities – from amazing skits, exciting recreational activities, fun crafts, gaga ball– with two added off-site excursions per week PLUS one “Camp Zephyr After-hours” evening. For 6 weeks this summer, middle school campers will get tailored activities and content in the beloved Camp Zephyr schedule. Don’t miss out!

Safety is a priority at Zephyr Point. All of our Summer Staff are CPR and First Aid certified, and your child will always be supervised by certified American Red Cross lifeguards while swimming, kayaking, and any other activities by the water. In addition COVID-19 precautions will be taken as necessary according to state and county mandates.

General Information:

Beyond Camp Zephyr is a 5-day, non-residential (not overnight), Christian based, summer day-camp program for 6th-8th graders.

Camp Hours: Monday-Friday 8:45-4:15.

Camp Zephyr After Hours:

On Thursday nights of Beyond Camp Zephyr, campers are invited to stay after-hours for extra games, fun, and food with fellow campers.

What to Bring:

Make sure your camper brings what they will need to Beyond Camp Zephyr! As lunch is not provided, pack a sack lunch for your camper to eat with their group. We will be outside playing games and having fun so a water bottle and sunscreen are necessary; our staff will make sure to remind campers to reapply sunscreen throughout the day. Every day, we spend time at the beach, kayaking or swimming, a swimsuit and towel are essential and water shoes are a good addition if you have them. Finally, a backpack to keep all of this together leads to fewer belongings in the lost and found! Other good things to bring are sunglasses, a hat, and a snack!

Medical forms:
Camp Zephyr requires new, up-to-date medical forms each summer. We cannot let campers participate without receiving these forms prior to their arrival at camp.
