Summer’s almost here – the time of year when kids can’t wait for school to end and parents are… not quite as excited. If your kids are anything like ours, they’re happy about their summer freedom for about a week, then get bored and restless. What’s a mom or dad to do?
At the Silver Spur Resort, we’ve brought back our popular summer day camps. Our day camps are fun, first and foremost, but we’ve designed them to be educational, too – but not in a boring way. With different camps for kids of all interests and with flexible schedules, you can send your kiddos to multiple camps at a reasonable rate.
The best part of Silver Spur Resort camps? Our overnight experience! For two-day camps, we offer the choice of day campers or an overnight stay. Overnight campers will be able to experience even more activities and will also be served dinner & breakfast. Campers may choose a sleepover in the climate-controlled barn with sleeping bags or and overnight stay in a cabin/house. Overnight campers will have adult supervision and there are a limited number of spots available.
All campers get the full SIlver Spur camp experience and will get to participate in basketball, volleyball, fishing, nerf wars, water balloon fights, and more!
“My son was here for the outdoor adventure camp/ hunter’s ed and had a great time, was very well taken care of, he is still talking about all the important things he learned about the outdoors and hunting, thanks for putting all the time and effort into making the ‘typically boring’ hunter’s ed class interesting. And thanks to all the staff for all the work you put into it” ~Steve W., parent from 2018 camps
