Summer camps continue at Chesapeake Academy

Young adventurers enjoy Chesapeake Academy’s Water Sports Camp.

Chesapeake Academy (CA) is kicking its summer camp planning into high gear, providing a wide variety of fun programs and challenging activities for children ages 4-14. Under the direction of camp director Cynthia Walker’s experienced, well-trained staff, CA Summer Camp campers build friendships, healthy bodies, strong character, and skills to last a lifetime.

Walker has created a summer camp lineup featuring traditional and not-so-traditional offerings. “Gone are the days when day camp meant simply tying knots or making pot holders,” said Walker, who has over a decade of camp experience guiding her programming. “Our programs are as unique as the campers themselves.”

For the summer of 2013, Chesapeake Academy will offer several one-week sessions of the following day camps: Camp Irvington for ages 4 to 7, Camp Chesapeake for ages 7 to 11, and Adventure Camp, Mystery Tour Camp and Water Sports Camp for ages 9 to 14. Both Camp Irvington and Camp Chesapeake are based on specific themes—Say “Yes” to the Mess, Myth Busters, Up a Creek Without a . . ., Northern Neck Adventures, EATZ, and Sports of all Sorts for Camp Chesapeake; and Where the Wild Things Are, Treasure Island, Holiday Hullabaloo, Under the Sea, and Going Green for Camp Irvington.

A real confidence-builder, Adventure Camp, offered July 8-12, features rock climbing, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking, frisbee golf, and rope courses utilizing fabulous local and regional facilities.

Camp Chesapeake’s five weekly sessions are divided into morning and afternoon themes aimed at building brain and muscle while cultivating a sense of exploration and adventure in campers ages 7 to 11.

For additional information on any of the five Chesapeake Academy summer camps and detailed description of the various session themes, call 804-438-5575, email Walker at or download the information and registration packet. Space is limited. Chesapeake Academy summer camp sessions are open to all children and grandchildren ages 4-14 of families residing in Northumberland, Lancaster, Middlesex and Mathews counties, as well as out of state.
