Blowing Rock Parks & Recreation Summer Day Camp believes that the day camp program should emphasize learning to appreciate the outdoors and our environment. We believe that campers should be active, outside and a part of the environment as much as possible. We will, for the most part, plan our special in-camp events and field trips according to this theme. There will, of course, be field trips and events that are purely for fun!
Blowing Rock Parks & Recreation Day Camp is for rising Kindergarten through rising 6th grade. Our day to day schedule is a semi-structured environment. The counselors will plan the daily activities beyond the field trips, one week in advance. This schedule will be posted at the entrance of the Blowing Rock School Gym on the Friday before the following week. Please keep in mind, however, that weather can cause changes in those plans.
