The Arts & Crafts programs at Kiwi bring to each camper the joy of creativity and developing one's talents. The program is housed in two large buildings under the supervision of Arts and Crafts Teachers, and Musicians. It is Kiwi's goal to unlock the imagination and talents inherent in all of us and in doing so to learn the value of creative playtime.
The program is also involved with many other activities in the camp such as the Theme Days, Carnival Week and the Summer Theater. Kiwi Artists create such things as banners, theatrical backdrops, and costumes.
Similar to Arts & Crafts, the Kiwi music program is designed to explore camper talent. Kiwi has a music building with a wrap-around deck. There is a wide range of musical instruments for the campers to enjoy. In addition, we enjoy singing many folk songs to get us into the Kiwi music spirit.
Campers at music prepare for the ever popular variety show, sing-a-long and musical production.
In addition to the lake activities which feature a long sandy white beach and a large waterside deck with slides, we have four heated pools each designed and staffed to accommodate all levels of swimmers. We offer a beginner pool: 1-3' deep and three intermediate pools: 3-8' deep. The largest pool is for more advanced swimmers. Swimmers are swim tested and placed according to ability, and strive to get advanced into the next pool.
Under the direction of our Aquatics Directors, the program provides both instruction and recreation for every camper. Every camper swims two times a day for 40 minutes each swim. It is our goal to provide your child with all the fun of the pool and also with the individual and group instruction that will make your child a better and more confident swimmer. We employ American Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructors & Lifeguards.
Camp Kiwi has an extensive sports program designed to teach both skills and athletic ability for campers of all ages. Kiwi also wants all campers to learn important values such as friendly competition and fair play. The program has all the major traditional sports like Tennis, Baseball, Basketball, Lacrosse, Volleyball, Floor Hockey and Soccer.
Campers have the option of joining Kiwi Sports Teams to compete against other teams within Kiwi or through our intra-mural program against other camps.
Please see our KIWI SPORTS PAGE for full details.
The program is led by a High School Music Director. Each group (ages 11-15) throughout the summer is scheduled for this outstandingly creative activity and is for ages 11-15.
This cultural activity allows for creativity in music, dance and art. These varied age groups work as a designated group in designing and implementing a music video. Groups decide on a song, story line and perhaps dance routine. The process is very FUN!
Please view our detailed VIDEO PRODUCTION PAGE for full details and to view sample music videos created by campers.
Kiwi's summer theater is one of the premiere programs which brings out the talent and creativity in your children. Under the direction of a Theater Director, the campers produce the entire play from costuming, props, acting, singing and dancing. The tryouts and production including everything from stage hands to lead roles are open to campers ages 8-15.
