Camp Westmont has something for the camper in every child. Our activities strike the perfect balance between sports and the arts – on the land and in the water.
One key to a successful camp experience lies with the staff and coaches who work with campers during activities. At Westmont, the majority of our coaches have played at the collegiate or professional level. Camp Westmont’s athletic and water sports activities are organized to ensure success by campers of all skill levels. Our programs are a mix of instruction, practice, team practices and playing.
Every camper has the opportunity to participate in Wayne County tournaments, compete in our “friendly” matches with local camps, or participate in our Camp Westmont Leagues. And for those less interested in competing, Camp Westmont offers skill-building programs so that every camper can learn and play at his/her own level. From the elite athlete to the novice, everyone is encouraged participate and improve.
Camp Westmont also has a full gym with fitness classes for our older campers.
Camp Westmont’s Swimming and Water Sports program includes swimming, boating, water skiing, and so much more. Westmont has something to offer the avid swimmer or the camper who prefers activities “on the water” such as kayaking, canoeing, jumping on a trampoline and tubing. Our private lake affords our campers the opportunity to enjoy various watersport activities right on our campus.
Swim instruction is completed in the heated swimming pool and follows the American Red Cross and WSI programs.
Arts & Crafts, Fine Arts and Drama
Camp Westmont has so much to offer the aspiring artist in every camper. With five Arts & Crafts studios, campers can enjoy woodworking, ceramics, fine arts, and crafting. The musical camper can take advantage of Westmont’s new sound studio, complete with instruments and sound-mixing capabilities. Aspiring actors can show their skills in our Drama program, culminating in a Visiting Day play performance. Our dance studio is the perfect place for the dancer in everyone to strut their stuff. Chocolate Making is always a fan favorite where campers concoct their own delicious creations. There are also many opportunities for campers to entertain at our evening activity Talent Shows.
Westmont also offers a full circus program with trapeze and silks, a skate park, a high ropes course, a zipline/climbing tower, archery. go-carts and horseback riding.
