"Join us for our 2017 Summer Camp! It's always so much fun and there are so many things to do! Don't miss a fun-filled summer!"
June 5-9: Awesome Athletes: "Take me out to the ball game . . . ." And we will! America's favorite summer pastime is shared this week with our summer campers as we embark on a field trip to the Tennessee Smokies baseball game. We'll be having a ball in the shade rooting for the home team at high noon and Tuesday, June 6. Which will you buy? Peanuts or Cracker Jacks? (Smokies Park, Kodak, TN)
June 12-16: We’re Going Green: No, not for the environment this time. It’s time to hit the greens as we play a game of Putt-Putt® Golf then chill for some fun in the arcade. Who will get a hole-in-one this time? Who will win a prize in the arcade? Putt-Putt® Golf and Games, offering three 18-hole Putt-Putt® Golf courses, is the perfect place for an afternoon of friendly fun and laughter. And we'll be having plenty of it on Tuesday, June 13. (Putt-Putt® Golf and Games, Farragut, TN)
June 19-23: On the Fast Track: We are out of the gate and onto the fast track on Tuesday, June 20, as we head to Kids Country where we’ll find The Rio Grande train, The Carousel, The Red Baron, The Plane Ride, The Spin Tops, The Swings, The Ferris Wheel, Noah’s Lark, Kiddie Karts, Rookie Karts, mini-golf and so much more. With the most rides in town, the fun never ends for our friends in Kids Country. Everyone will most certainly return home this day ready for a rest. (Kids Country, Pigeon Forge, TN)
June 26-30: Right Down Your Alley: Fun awaits us as we divide into teams to compete in some friendly bowling competition. Who’ll get a strike? Will somebody bowl a perfect game? Or, who’ll end up in the gutter? We’ll see on Tuesday, June 27. This is a day that will be “right down your alley!” (Strike and Spare Family Bowl, Knoxville, TN).
July 3-7: Gear Up: Gear up for a great afternoon as we travel to the Muse Knoxville. Our wheels will begin turning as we enjoy the all NEW “Hot Wheels” exhibit and travel through space in our visit to the Planetarium. In addition to these two exciting adventures, we will enjoy “hands on” exhibits that include Make It Move, Opposites Attract, Float Your Boat, Dinosaurs: The Unfinished Puzzle, Ocean Voyage, Full of Energy, Bats: The Flying Mammals and so much more. You will be inspired and empowered at the intersection of science and art. Due to the Fourth of July hoiday week, we'll be visiting The Muse on Thursday, July 6. (The Muse, Knoxville, TN) OUR 2017 SUMMER CAMP WILL BE CLOSED ON TUESDAY, JULY 4TH IN OBSERVANCE OF INDEPENDENCE DAY!
July 10-14: "It's Raining Cats and Dogs": This may be and old saying, and it may not be raining "cats and dogs" at the RainForest Adventures Discovery Zoo, but you'll have a chance to see over 600 live animals representing over 130 species during our visit on Tuesday, July 11. The RainForest Adventures Discovery Zoo is home to unique and beautiful creatures from the rain forests of the world. (RainForest Adventures discovery Zoo, Pigeon Forge, TN)
July 17-21: Ninja Warrior: Ever dreamed of becoming a Ninja Warrior? Well, you can for one day during our 2017 summer camp program. On Tuesday, July 18, you will find yourself climbing, jumping and experiencing some high-flying fun in the Smoky Mountains as we visit Sevier Air, Sevierville's newest and largest indoor family adventure park. The facility features 38,000 square feet of advanced and junior Ninja Warrior courses, trampolines, and a first-ever three-story net system for two to ten year olds. (Sevier Air, Pigeon Forge, TN)
July 24-28: Ups and Downs: We all know life has its ups and downs and our 2017 Summer Camp is no exception. We continue our summer fun this week with a trip to Max Air on Tuesday, July 25, for an afternoon of high energy. This trip will find an indoor play area that will fill our afternoon with fun, energy and excitement. What a way to draw near to the end of our summer as we bounce around and around and up and down! (Max Air, Powell, Tennessee)
July 31-August 4: Wipe Out: Imagination Run Wild: Whether you delve into the Inversion Tunnel, the Far Out Illusion Gallery, or Space Zone, your imagination will run wild! Summer campers will learn how it all began as a Top Secret facility on a remote island, in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle. Fun awaits our students at WonderWorks, Pigeon Forge’s #1 indoor interactive attraction on Tuesday, August 1, with more than 120 interactive, hands-on exhibits, and featuring a brand new “Space Walk Challenge” that glows in the dark!
