Kids ages 7–13 attend camp Camps Monday–Friday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. During the Amazing Arts camp, kids create everything from mason-jar candle holders to yarn-wrapped vases to origami. At the Backyard Sports camp, kids learn the basics of basketball, volleyball, backyard bowling, and flag football, as well as several other sports.
The Dude camp encourages boys to run around playing dodgeball and flag football, plus it lets them build a wood project and participate in a scavenger hunt. They also get to build a fort for a water-balloon fight. The Girl Power camp leads girls through yoga, Pilates, and meditation. It allows them to discuss friendship, body image, and stress management, and it introduces them to books that feature strong female characters. Girls also get to make homemade perfume and friendship bracelets.
During the CO2 Cars camp, campers build their own racecar. They sketch the design and then build the car before placing a CO2 insert in the finished product and racing it. The Reuse and Re-Create camp tasks campers with finding a new use for an old item. They might turn an object into a bird feeder, coaster, or denim pencil holder, and they get to make a Can-Do robot. There is a surprise item to work with each day.

Q&A with Jenna Gibbons, Camp Director and Owner
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We offer an overnight feel in a day-camp setting.
What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?
We provide campers with the opportunity to choose their summer camp by providing them with a variety of choices, such as: Girl Power, Dude Camp, and CO2 Cars. We are also small and local so that we can meet the needs of the families in our local community.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
I am a teacher, and education is very important to me. I love the fact that we provide campers with a unique experience in the summer where they will enjoy nature, enjoy what interests them, and learn how to work with a team.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
My husband and I are very excited to bring this local summer-camp program to the Mt. Juliet area. We really think it will provide campers with a variety of camps to choose from, and it is flexible for parents' schedules. We hope to expand next year with even more choices. A few we're thinking of including are zombie camp, medieval camp, Lego camp, and jewelry-making camp.
