Rollins College Summer Camps

I was recently sent information on the summer camps offered at Rollins College, in Winter Park. I thought I would share this info with you in case this is something that would interest you. Trust me, if my kids were older they would so be going to one of these camps!

Rollins Summer Camp has been providing an opportunity for children to make new friends, grow, and learn during summer break since 1967. Campers build their own summer camp experiences by selecting their camp courses from a curriculum including courses in the arts, enrichment, and sports.

The Arts

Put on your dance shoes and learn about rhythm and movement in dance class, or join the circus class and experience the joy of entertainment as your learn to walk a tightrope and juggle. Students have the opportunity learn visual and performing arts.


Enrichment classes encourage campers to think outside the box. Travel to a different place in the book club, or go out of this world and learn about rockets and space travel in aeronautics. How about creative thinking and advertising classes, or engaging applied science courses in robotics or forensics?


Have energy to burn? Check out the summer camp sports offerings. Learn about fitness and healthy living while working as a team. Classes range from sailing and canoeing, swimming, tennis, and yoga.

Rollins Summer Camp offers two, four-week sessions, and each session runs Monday through Friday. The traditional camp day includes four (4) courses and runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Explorers program, for 6th and 7th graders, includes three (3) courses, and also runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Supervised Recreation is available before and after camp for an additional fee. Session A: June 14 – July 9, 2010. Session B: July 12 – August 6, 2010. Registration is ongoing.
