Today’s Smarty Summer Camp Guide is by Trinity Episcopal School.
“You don’t know summer until you experience a Wildcat Summer!”
At Trinity Episcopal School’s Wildcat Summer Camp children in rising grades K-8 (ages 5-14) experience six weeks of fantastic full- and half-day camps packed with new experiences and exciting, hands-on learning.
What makes Wildcat Summer Camp unique? Here are all the reasons, from A-Z.
Adventures – Adventurers unite! In Camp Independence Jr., Camp Independence and Camp Independence Sr., your adventurer will learn leadership and outdoor skills while fostering independence.
Before- and After- Camp Care – One of our greatest features to accommodate working families! Drop-off as early as 7:30am and pick up as late as 5pm.
Counselors – Campers love our counselors! We maintain a 12:1 ratio and hire counselors who are respectful, responsible, fun and interactive.
Double the fun – Are you interested in one camp in the morning and one in the afternoon? Sign-up for both and your camper can stay on campus for lunch and recess before they join their afternoon camp.
Everyone is welcome – Not a Trinity student? No problem! We invite children from all over the city to join us for a summer of adventures.
Field trips – We love taking advantage of the great experiences Charlotte has to offer. Many of our camps involve field trips to local venues such as Small City Farm, Lazy 5 Ranch, US National Whitewater Center and more.
Games and Good Sports – At Wildcat Summer Camp, we play a lot of games from sports games to relay races to engineering challenges. We teach and practice the importance of good sportsmanship in all games.
Honor Code – We are fully invested in honoring Trinity’s core values of creating scholars, nurturing spirituality and embracing diversity in Charlotte’s Center City. Trinity’s Honor Code provides guidelines that help all students interact successfully within our community.
Ice Cream Truck – The best way to beat the summer heat is a Popsicle treat on Mondays during camp.
Judges – Judges love our Uptown Play Days talent show every year.
Kids – Rule!
Learning – Shhh — don’t tell your camper this, but learning takes place at Wildcat Summer Camp. Through fun activities and field trips, your camper will learn new skills in sports, how to protect the environment and about life in different cultures.
Make your own schedule – Only need half-day camps? Most of our full-day camps are offered as half-day options for either morning or afternoon camps.
New Friends – Make new friends but keep the old! Campers come back summer after summer and build long lasting friendships.
Offerings – We offer a wide variety of camp offerings to appeal to different interests. Whether your child is passionate about the arts, sports, geography, technology, math or being green, your camper will grow at Wildcat Summer Camp!
Photography – We love taking pictures of your campers enjoying the day. We send out a photo release waiver and post daily pictures to our Wildcat Summer Camp Instagram account so you can join in on the fun.
Queen City Quest – This is our most popular camp. We model this after the TV show “The Amazing Race.” Campers are placed on teams to solve clues, riddles and challenges throughout the week in an effort to win the Queen City Cup!
Reading – For the reluctant reader or those who can’t put their books down, Camp Read (& Write) A Lot is back again for another summer of promoting a lifelong love of reading!
Snacks – We take the guess work out of snack time by providing a morning and afternoon snack for every camper.
Technology – Is your camper interested in coding and programming? Register today for our STEM and engineering camps featuring Youth Digital Technology!
Uptown Playground – Trinity Episcopal School is centrally located in First Ward, and we use Uptown as our playground! We explore at Discovery Place, read books at Imaginon and play at Alexander Street Park.
Vision – As in Court Vision Basketball Camp – This camp focuses on developing young basketball players using basic fundamentals, skills and mechanics.
Waffles – Did you know that we provide breakfast during our before-camp care? Waffles are a big hit in the mornings.
eXperiences for Middle Schoolers – Register your middle schooler for one of our MS-only camps. These hands-on adventures such as Babysitter’s Club and Young Actor’s Studio are exclusively for students in grades 5-8, and they will surely challenge your older camper.
Young Actor’s Studio: Looking for a camp that will inspire creativity, confidence and a sense of community for your child? Young Actor’s Studio is the camp for you! Students will explore and practice theatre skills such as improvisation, music and movement.
Zonked Out = What your camper will be after a day at Wildcat Summer Camp! Our camps are overflowing with adventures, new experiences, friends and more.
