Camp Staunton, our reputable camp, offers mature and experienced staff, nature exploration, enrichment, physical activity and field trips. The Staunton Parks and Recreation Summer Playground program has been in operation for more than 30 years.
We take great care in the hiring process by only interviewing qualified and mature staff. Many of our employees have been with Staunton Parks and Recreation for more than 10 years.
Our park setting makes us unique from some of our counterparts who use institutional settings. We have acres of green space, state-of-the-art playgrounds, woods to hike, outdoor sport courts and fishing lakes. We value creativity and have researched the many ways play in the outdoors enhances creativity in children.
Your child will choose from many activities like archery, arts and crafts, pickleball, hiking, disc golf, and cooking. We take field trips to various fun and exciting places, such as Natural Bridge and Museums.
Does your child need exercise? Whether it is organized or unorganized play, there is no way around it. We play numerous recreational activities each day.
Age matters! We separate our three camps according to age, and field trips are customized to each age group.
