Summer Vacation Camp: Fun & Fitness Week
Fun & Fitness Week ( July 23-27)
Blithewold has 33 acres of gardens, grounds and shorefront to explore. This week campers will get outside and play games, enjoy nature hikes, a yoga bash, trips to the beach, a dance-off, parachute fun, giant game board games, sports, team challenges, obstacle courses, and Zumba.
This week will end with a Family Fun Friday performance of Bari Koral on Friday, July 27. Dubbed the “‘IT girl’ in kids/family music” by NY Magazine and the “Sheryl Crow for kids” by the NY Post, Bari’s songs are a huge hit with children and adults. Her catchy, pop friendly tunes, interactive live shows & heavy rotation radio play have gained the band literally thousands of young (and not so young!) fans.
*We prefer that you register for camp online. If you experience difficulty or have questions or concerns, please call our registrar at 401-253-2707 x 21.
