New for 2020

Welcome Campers and Parents!

A very special summer experience awaits you at Maplewood Country Day Camp celebrates its 56th season!

For the past 55 years, Maplewood has offered a nurturing environment where children feel comfortable participating in many rewarding activities.

A personal sense of success and achievement provides motivation to learn new skills and practice old ones, while also encouraging our campers to grow through positive social interaction.

As we approach our 56th year, we will continue the Maplewood tradition, expanding our programs and facilities to ensure that the 2020 camp season is our best ever.

NEW AND IMPROVED ACTIVITIES FOR 2020

  • Spike Ball
  • Corn Hole
  • Yoga
Spikeball is a new sport that's sweeping the nation

Spikeball

Our campers are going to LOVE Spikeball!  It is commonly referred to as the love child between volleyball and four-square. It is played 2 vs 2, with a taut hula hoop sized Spikeball net placed between the teams. A player starts a point by serving the ball down on the net so it ricochets up at his opponents.  They have up to three hits between them (just like Volleyball) to control the ball and bounce it back off the net.

When they miss, you score.  Did we mention that there are no boundaries?  Once a point starts, players can move or hit the ball anywhere.

Campers love taking yoga at club day.

Yoga

We are thrilled to welcome Gail O. to Maplewood this summer.  Gail has been a part of the fitness industry for over 25 years. She started practicing yoga 10 years ago and became a certified instructor through the YogaFit teacher training. Gail has completed levels 1 through 4 of the YogaFit training and has taken courses specifically designed for seniors, kids, yoga strength and Pilates. Gail’s style of teaching is part Hatha Yoga with the holding of postures...but is primarily a Vinyasa Yoga Stretch and Flow.

Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, it improves their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation.  It can reduce your child's anxiety and stress and promote a sense of calmness

Campers will go crazy for Corn Hole

Corn Hole

Cornhole is a fun game to play and is suitable for all ages and can be played with two or more campers.

It's an easy game to master our kids how to play so you can spend more time outside with them. Campers will easily learn how to play and will enjoy the game throughout the summer.  Playing cornhole improves hand-eye coordination, body awareness, and bilateral coordination.  Teamwork at it's best - Let’s play!

Air Conditioned Gymnasium

Summer is a wonderful time to play outdoors, but it is always nice to cool off in our swimming pools and indoor air-conditioned facilities. Over the past twenty years, campers and staff have really enjoyed escaping the summer heat in our air-conditioned classrooms for gymnastics, dance, music, drama, art, chess, and academics. This month we are installing air conditioning in our gymnasium which will make the 90-degree temperatures during rock climbing, sports activities, indoor games and extended day a thing of the past.
