All About Summer Impressions

SUMMER IMPRESSIONS IS THE PLACE TO BE

For the past 28 years, Summer Impressions Day Camp has provided children ages 2 to 10 years old (Leaders in Training (L.I.T.’s) 11-14 years old) with the ultimate summer day camp experience.

Conveniently located in West Bloomfield, Michigan in Oakland County on Middlebelt Rd. between Lone Pine and Long Lake, our state-of-the-art facilities offer all of the activities of a “country” camp within easy reach of Farmington Hills, Bloomfield Hills, Commerce Township and other Oakland County communities.

Our campers participate in a variety of sports, arts and crafts, science and nature, and creative dramatics, along with field trips for campers entering first grade and older.

Swimming in the heated Summer Impressions pools, designed especially for children, is a twice-daily event at camp. Our bowl-shaped wading pool with a depth of only 18 inches provides an excellent introduction to the fun of water sports. The S-shaped pool, with a depth of 21/2 feet to 4 feet, allows elementary to excellent swimmers an opportunity to perfect their swimming skills under the guidance of our professional Red Cross water safety instructors.

For our youngest set, there is our “Breaking Away” program (ages 2-3). Ideal for campers who are not yet potty trained or who may only need a half-day program, we emphasize making friends, learning new skills and having fun. For your child’s first camp experience, our counselors are ready to teach, to listen and to guide your child through a positive camp experience.

Our “Cool Kids Camp” (ages 3-4) is also an introduction to the summer day camp experience. This camp highlights fun, making new friends, and learning new skills. Our counselors are ready to teach, listen and guide your camper through a positive camp experience. Children participate in most camp activities, including, but not limited to, swimming, arts and crafts, rock climbing, awesome bounce, special visitors, and Safety City (age 4).

The “Awesome Adventurers Camp” (children entering Kindergarten) offers more challenging activities. From sports to swimming, to art, to drama, to science and everything in between, you decide. The choices are bountiful…whether you want to become an ace tennis player, a super swimmer or a budding stage performer, we will be there to help you succeed. Children also may participate in our Awesome Overnights and Safety City.

The “Energetic Explorers Camp” (ages 6-10) provides the older child with lots of variety in activity selection. We give campers an opportunity to participate in the planning process which results in unique schedules for all our campers. From weekly adventure trips to overnights, there is always something exciting just around the corner. The possibilities are endless. Safety City is also available for 6-year-olds.

Summer Impressions also has a Leaders-In-Training program (ages 11-14). L.I.T.’s who are looking for a summer of fun while learning new responsibilities and leadership should contact us for more details!

Don’t forget that Summer Impressions offers an extended camping day at no additional charge. Campers can start as early as 7 AM or stay as late as 6 PM.

Also, Summer Impressions now offers an extended summer, with summer day camp sessions going until August 31!

Summer Impressions will guarantee your camper the opportunity to grow emotionally and socially in a non-competitive, fun-filled environment. Lasting friendships and enhanced self-esteem are the by-products of a season spent at Summer Impressions.
