A Typical Day

At AIDA we believe in the value of cooperative play and kid driven activities.  Our counselors will make every effort to keep on a schedule but we do recognize the importance of allowing our students to take initiative to organize games and activities.  We will often follow their lead throughout the day ensuring that campers are safe and making core memories to last a lifetime. 

Campers will receive a weekly schedule one week prior to camp but this will help give a general idea of what our day looks like

Parents will be receiving updates, photos, and information throughout the day to keep you informed about your child's progress and location.  You will also have direct access to counselors during the day.  

We also keep our campers busy with tech free activities throughout the day.  

We do recognize that parents want to feel safe about their children going on field trips and are open to allowing watches for long field trips IF a parent feels they need one at the owners discretion.  This will be done with a contract for use in place and consent that AIDA (including team members, jr counselors, etc) are not held liable if lost, stolen or damaged. 

We look forward to sharing the summer with you!
