nobles day camp photoA safe and supportive environment is at the forefront of our philosophy for our campers. Nobles is accredited by the American Camp Association and takes every precaution to be sure that all of our campers are safe during their time at camp.

Through involvement with positive role models in our many different activities, campers learn to enjoy recreation in a non-competitive atmosphere, respect the rights of others, take positive risks, and learn to make choices in a fun and caring environment.

At the same time they are gaining positive self-esteem and long lasting friendships with peers and adults.

Owls Nest at Nobles Day Camp

The Owls Nest is an exciting and engaging introduction to camp, providing a wide range of creative
activities in a safe and nurturing environment. The varied activities are designed to encourage a
camper’s social, artistic and physical development. Owls Nest campers are placed in age appropriate
nests (small groups) of 12-16 campers and 3-4 counselors, with a counselor/camper ratio of 1:4.

The Owls have their own special section of the Nobles campus, complete with their own in-ground
heated pool. Each nest has an air conditioned indoor home base, however, campers spend a large
portion of their day outdoors whenever possible. Each nest is designed to allow a positive successful
experience by placing them in their age appropriate groups. To ensure this, we group campers by the
year they will enter kindergarten as we recognize the academic year is the base point of their social,
emotional and developmental stage of their growth.

3.5 – 4 years old who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2014

4 - 5 years old who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2013

5 -6 years old who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2012

Nobles Day Camp

For campers entering 1st – 7th grade

Nobles Day Camp is all about choices!!!

Campers are placed in co-ed groups of children all entering the same grade next fall. Each group has a morning and afternoon swim (one instructional; one free swim) and a group lunch period. Campers supplement the rest of their day with choices from their age appropriate activities list.

Each group has a unique schedule which offers children a choice of three or four different activities each hour. At the beginning of each hour, a child chooses the activity in which he wishes to participate.

Although counselors encourage every child to try new activities, the final decision rests with the camper.
