Schedule & Activities



Sports/Physical Activities
REC Kids love being active!  Some of the sports/games we play include dodgeball, kickball, broomball, whiffleball, soccer, basketball, various forms of tag, treasure hunt, and capture the flag, just to name a few!

Indoor Swimming in the Leisure Pool
Don't forget a towel!  Campers will swim with their respective age groups in the 74K gallon leisure pool which features a water wall, whirlpool, bubble couch, basketball hoop, and lazy river.  The leisure pool has a maximum depth of three and a half feet.

Climbing Wall
Every Thursday, campers take a trip to the CRC Climbing wall to practice their climbing skills.  Safety first!  All campers are outfitted with a helmet and harness, and supervised by belay-certified counselors and wall staff members.

Camper Club
During this time, campers pick their own destinies!  Campers will choose from three to four pre-determined activities.  Activities include crafts, fort building, board games, special sports, and much more!

Team Building
Throughout the summer, campers will participate in various team building challenges.  These age-appropriate activities will test campers' logic, problem-solving, communication, and teamwork skills.

Friday Special Events
T.G.I.F.  Each Friday, campers will be treated to a special event that ties in with the weekly theme.  Examples include the REC Kids Talent Show during REC Kids Got Talent! Week or the Cincinnati's Best Dance Crew competition during Just Dance! Week.

Thematic Activities
These activities may be physical, creative, intellectual, or artistic.  Some examples include outdoor water games during water week or a group fitness class during fitness week.
