A Day in the Life at Camp Mania

Summer Camp Mania is the place to be if you’re a kid spending your summer in Southlake!

Camp is well-underway, and the kiddos are having a great time. Since parents don’t get the opportunity to shadow their kiddos during the day, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to share the incredible schedules our campers enjoy! No two days are alike, and every week has a unique theme to set the tone for the activities we do.

A Day in the Life of a Camp Mania Camper:

7:30- 9:00 AM

Campers wake up bright and early to make it on time for the first activity. Structured activities begin at 9:00 AM, but parents can start dropping off their kiddos starting at 8:30 AM. This is a time for free play and socialization!

9:00- 9:30 AM 

Welcome to the Opening Ceremony. This is the perfect time to orient campers and prepare them for the day ahead! It wouldn’t be camp without singing some camp songs, reciting the camp creed, and going over the expectations for the day.

9:30- 10:00 AM

Time for a quick huddle/ ice breaker game! Camp favorites include the Human Knot, Freeze Dance, and Telephone!

10:00- 11:00 AM

Fun in the sun! It’s time for some outdoor playtime! Depending on the day we could be playing games or cooling off with waterslides!

11:00 -12:00 PM

Lunch! Time to take a break from all the activity and enjoy a delicious home-packed lunch! This is also the best time to talk with friends.

12:00- 1:00 PM

Time to hit the gym! This is the time of day to work on team building and friendly competition with crowd-favorites like volleyball and Powerball. On Fridays, we enjoy splashing in the water at the Champions Club Aquatics Center.

1:00- 2:00 PM

Time to get creative! During this hour, Campers break up into their groups to enjoy a fun craft or STEM activity. The highlight is always taking these crafts home to share with mom and dad!

2:00- 2:30 PM

Snack Time! All that playing and creating sure works up an appetite. Snack time is always a welcome break in a day full of fun.

2:30- 4:00 PM

Time for more incredible activities! Each day is different, but there is something for everyone! On Monday’s we watch movies, Tuesdays we have inflatables, Wednesdays are field trip days, Thursdays we have guest performances, and Fridays end the week with delicious Kona Ice!

4:00-4:30 PM 

Camper Choice. After a busy day of scheduled activities, campers get to decide how to spend their final 30 minutes.

4:30- 5:30

Check- Out. Time to say goodbye to our friends and Camp Counselors and get ready to do it all over again!

Every day is an adventure at Camp Mania!
