BEACH CAMP & ADVENTURE CLUB 2017
 
 
Dear Beach Camp and Adventure Club Parents,
 
As winter becomes a distant memory, we wanted to update you that Tokeneke Club is again offering a fun-filled summer camp for our young members.  For children ages 3 to 10, summer camp consists of a 5-day week/9am to 1pm and will be offered for six one week sessions.  Camp begins Monday, June 19th and runs through Friday, July 28thRegistration is open (link below) and closes on March 21st.  Please register ASAP so we can properly staff our camp and prepare for summer fun.  If you are unsure of the week(s) you child(ren) can attend please register and we can adjust at a later date. 

As in the past, children will be divided into groups based on their level in school:

Sea Stars – for children entering or currently enrolled in preschool (must be 3 by April 1st and potty trained)

Dolphins – for children entering kindergarten

Bluefish – for children entering 1st and 2nd grade

Adventure Club – for children entering 3rd, 4th  and 5th  

 

We are pleased to announce that we have hired Chloe Williams as Tokeneke's new Camp Director.  Chloe has a Masters Degree in Art in Secondary Education and is currently a math teacher at Middlesex Middle School in Darien.  Chloe loves working with children and for the past two years she was the Assistant Director at the New Canaan YMCA Camp. Chloe and her staff are working hard to ensure that all camp activities are designed specifically for each age group. 

New this year is an early drop off program Monday through Friday 8:30-9am.  This pilot program is open to all campers in beach camp  & adventure club with a limit of 15 campers per day.  The children will be supervised by camp counselors staff while playing games and arts and crafts.  The cost is $10 per day.  Details on registration for early drop off will be coming in May.  

As always, our weeks will be filled with sports, arts, crafts, swimming, games, music, dance, beach fun and all sorts of other exciting things.  We will celebrate the end of summer camp with our Talent Night & Art Show (Date to be determined) where the campers will put on an entertaining evening for the whole family.  In late May a calendar of our weekly themes and special events will be mailed home and made available on our website.  And remember, camp is held rain or shine – we can always find something fun to do!

Sea Stars and Dolphins will have daily swim lessons; Bluefish and Adventure Club with enjoy open swim with their counselors.  We are also planning a camper swim meet to give everyone a chance to win gold!  Camp also offers peanut tennis for our younger campers Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We will continue our weekly emails alerting you to upcoming camp activities and events as well as end of the week recaps with photos.      

A link to camp registration is below, please fill in all pertinent information.  Also linked below is the mandatory emergency medical form and health form.

The Beach Camp Committee will hold an ice cream social for campers and parents, date to be determined. This social will give campers a chance to get to know one another and meet a few of the counselors.  This is also a great time for parents to ask any questions they might have. 

We look forward to another great summer at Tokeneke Summer Camp!  Please feel free to give us a call with any questions or suggestions.
