Giggles Summer Camp – Wilmington NC
Our summer camp is GIGGLES ON THE GO!! We offer a full 8 hour summer camp for kids rising into kindergarten through 5th grade.
Our camp is different from most of the summer camps in town for several reasons.
-We go on a field trip EVERYDAY with LOTS of fun activities !
-We have weekly guests come to Giggles from our community like the aquarium, Halyburton park, Marshal arts and many more!
-We have a very low teacher to child ratio 1:10 maximum (it’s usually much lower). Your child will get the personal attention they deserve.
-ALL of our snacks, lunches, and activities are included in our low prices. That means you don’t ever have to worry about paying anything extra, packing food or a water bottle, or even washing your child’s camp shirt; we take care of it all!
How it works
Kids attending summer camp are dropped off at our center any time between 8:00 and 9:30 AM. We load up each morning at 9:30 for our daily field trips. We are generally gone from the center from around 9:30 AM until 2:00 or 3:00 PM each day. We return for some free play in the afternoon. Your child should be picked up 8 hours after they were dropped off in the morning. We do offer flexibility if you need extra time, just ask for details.
Lunches and activities are all included in our low prices. Each week of summer camp has a different theme which is listed below. For detailed daily activities, check back soon-we are still confirming all the dates.
**Monday, Wednesday and Fridays are water days. Your children should arrive wearing their swimwear and sunscreen and bring a change of clothing and a towel packed in a bag.
