In the afternoon, kids are gathered all together to play fun activities such as dodgeball, octopus and many more. Every week the whole camp goes on a swimming trip to their local swimming pool. On certain days, the whole camp goes on a trip that is set up for them or gather with the other camps to play many games that were organized by their counselors. The Child Experience Camp also sets ups a talent show for the kids to present their talent to their parents. This is one way they help the kids tap into their creativity and self-expression.

Overall, The Child Experience Camp seeks to keep the kids busy during the summer. They perceive the camp as a way to  broaden the kids’ communication skills while they interact with different kids who they have never met or kids who were in the same school as them. They see this camp as a foundation to the child’s growth and make life long memories with the new friends that they make. The Child Experience Camp’s counselors and volunteers work hard to make their camp fun and memorable.
