Skate Park days
Skate parks are super fun however, most of them are intimidating for younger/new skaters and are usually occupied by teenagers who aren't portraying a positive example for our campers. Therefore, we are setting up a Mini Skate Park in the parking lot for the summer. Participating students will need to bring their own skateboard, scooter or roller skates to participate. Of course, helmets and all other protective equipment is required.
Water Slide Bounce House days
We are bringing in a different Water Slide Inflatable every Monday. These will be set up in front of the center in the drop off/pick up area. One of the things we will cover during orientation is how to pick up on Monday's when the parking lot is blocked off by a giant water slide.
We are booking out our own private jump times with Rockin' Jump. Only our campers will bouncing on Rockin' Jump days.
Movie Theater day
We are renting out the theater for our own private showing of available PG movies playing over the summer. Only our campers will be in the theater during the showing.
We are renting out Roller King for own private skating session. Only our campers will be skating at this time.
Campers must be 48in(4ft) or taller AND Water Safe to participate on this trip. Wake Island has a minimum height requirement for all children in order to be allowed on the Aqua Park. Campers who are not 48in tall and Water Safe, will stay at the center and do their own water activities for the day. We are buying all of our Full Time Campers (over 48in tall and Water Safe) season passes. These passes can be used all summer long (including weekends). We are working with Wake Island to set up our own Aqua Park Sessions for our campers every Wednesday.
Campers are welcome to bring their own traditional Nerf Blasters on Nerf days. Campers are not allowed to bring Nerf Rival or Nerf Mega Blasters. Campers are also required to bring their own eye protection (glasses or goggles). We will provide all of the darts.
Summer Camp 2021 Updates
Summer is our favorite time of year at TNT Kidz Center! Our days are packed with Field Trips, Games, Arts/Crafts, and an UNMATCHED level of FUN activities all based on the Theme of the Week.
We have put together Two Calendars this year to meet the needs, abilities, and skills of our student population.
The Intermediate Calendar is for campers who are in K-6th grade, and for students who are still building the independent social and safety skills needed for the more advanced activities.
The Advanced Calendar is for campers who are in 3rd-6th grade and have developed the mental, emotional, and physical self discipline to stay safe on more advanced trips.
We will be Holding Tryouts for the Advanced Calendar. We have set up a Water Competency Assessment at Sea Otter Swim School. The assessment will take place on Saturday, April 10th at 4pm. All swimmers will be asked to swim 25yds using a stroke of any kind, unassisted. Swimmers will also be asked to tread water for a minimum of 2.5 minutes using any technique. These assessments will help us insure all of our Advanced campers are able to be safe in the water while on trips with us.
Additionally, we are also working on setting up a Skills Competency Evaluation with a local Mountain Biking Club. As always, our number one priority is ensuring our campers are safe. These evaluations will help us to make sure all of our Advanced Campers possess the skills necessary for the downhill trails we will be riding.
We are anticipating reaching capacity for this year's Summer Camp. We are strongly encouraging families that are serious about attending to turn in their Pre Enrollment Sheet, Registration Fee and Registration Packet as soon as possible. This process and payment will save your camper's place in our Summer Camp Program. Please note the Registration Fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. It is used to purchase Non-Refundable Field Trip Passes, Entrance Fees, Transportation, and More. We are prioritizing Full-Time Campers and will only be offering a limited number of Part-Time slots this year. We are asking all families that are interested in Camp to turn in all of the required Pre Enrollment paperwork ASAP so that we can finalize field trip and staffing numbers.
We will be hosting an Orientation for this year's camps for all families. As we get closer to camp we will announce the dates and times for orientation. Orientation is going to be Mandatory for all campers and families this year. We are going to be covering numerous policies and procedures in depth. It is also a great opportunity for families and campers to meet their Camp Leaders as well as ask any questions.
Please take the time to read the Calendars IN FULL. As we get closer we will provide departure and return times for trips.
*Water Safe: Our definition of Water Competency mirrors that of Water Safety USA. In addition to their guidelines, we also require all campers to be able to tread water for a minimum of 45sec. Please make sure your camper is familiar with the Water Competency guidelines.
*All Field Trips are subject to change for any reason. We are going to do our best to stick to the Calendars. In the past, we have had to make very few changes to trips. However, with Covid and everything else going on in the world, we are going to have our fingers crossed that nothing alters our Calendars. If unforeseen circumstances force us to change our Calendars for any reason, we will do our very best to adjust on the fly and bring the same level of energy and fun regardless of where or what we are doing.
We are so excited for this Summer. This is going to be our most dynamic one yet! We can't wait to make lasting memories with all of our new campers and families.
