Youth Summer Camps
We have decided to cancel Be Active Summer Camp 2020. We are saddened that we will not be able to offer in-person camps, but we do not feel we could bring the same high-quality experience while guaranteeing safety for participants and staff under the restrictions currently in place. Safety, now and always, comes first.
We are excited to announce our virtual summer camp prgoram: Virtual Play in Fay! It is important for us to continue to offer programming for children this summer because we understand the impact of our camps on families in the community. Virtual Play in Fay will be free of charge and registration is open now! Click here for more details.

The goal of Be Active! Summer Camps each year is to provide healthy, fun, and educational activities for campers age 5-15 years (all campers must have completed Kindergarten). We strive to create an environment where your child has an enthralling experience fostering life-long participation in sports and recreational activities. Regardless of experience in outdoor recreation or sports, each child is welcome and encouraged to participate in our summer camps. Additionally, each child needs to bring sunscreen, bottled water (labeled with name), and wear weather-appropriate clothing and shoes to camp each day. All camp sessions are 9 am - 12 pm Campers may be dropped off as early as 8:30 a.m. and picked up no later than 12:30 pm Many sessions end with a Friday showcase event that parents are encouraged to attend!

Outdoor Advanced Camp 4 (ages 10-15) participants perform activities similar to Outdoor Adventure Camp, but are encouraged to achieve goals in each activity consistent with their age group.
Soccer Camp is an excellent way for children to improve their skills in "the beautiful game," especially with the guidance of OliverSoccer instructors. Each morning participants work on skills such as shooting, dribbling, and passing, while playing various games designed to improve foot-eye coordination in a fun atmosphere. All campers receive a t-shirt and soccer ball, which they bring to camp with them each day.
Tennis Camp teaches and refines basic tennis form and techniques including forehand, backhand, volley, serving and footwork. With the help of USTA instructors children enjoy games in the USTA's 10 and under format to improve their skills and earn the title of "Court Champion!" All campers receive a camp t-shirt as well as a camp themed visor to keep the sun out of the eyes of our future tennis masters!
Theatre Camp introduces campers to theatre with fundamental acting techniques and methods. Stage fright be gone; camper thespians find their voice! With the help of the Young Actors Guild, campers learn acting techniques, theatre terminology, and explore character creation through fun and games. The camp culminates on Friday with an original showcase performance. All campers receive a camp t-shirt as well as sunglasses to keep the Sun out of the actors’ eyes while on stage!
At Camp Wilson, campers engage in a variety of games and activities while getting to know Wilson Park.
