Circle of Smiles

Our program has been skillfully designed so that kids of varying social and athletic ability can harmoniously share a positive and memorable growth experience. The numerous events and activities featured at camp are meticulously managed as part of a "bigger picture" effort to help our participants develop physically and mentally.

Time at Champion is organized within sessions, each of which contains weeks that have a distinct focus and unique special events. No two days at Champion are ever the same due to a wide-ranging and ever-changing set of activities within our schedule. The many special moments we provide on a daily basis add up to a complete experience that extends beyond camp by providing campers with lasting and fun-filled memories.

At Champion, families are given the option to customize their schedules with any length and combination of days as desired to get "prefect fit" plans (we can accommodate any request from a signle day to an entire summer). Any time spent at camp is sure to be a great, but attending a full session from start-to-finish is the only way to experience all that Champion has to offer!

The Champion Experience

Welcome Week

This week sets a critical foundation for the entire camp session. Campers will get to know each other and their group leaders as they settle into the Champion environment.

Tournament Week

This action-packed week features a "March Madness" type of excitement around every game played. Featured tournaments include: Soccer, Football, Basketball, Track & Field, Dodgeball, and more! Special emphasis is placed on team play, sportsmanship and cooperation during this week.

Olympic Week

Campers will be divided into teams of Reds and Yellows to square off in a series of fun challenges during this week of friendly competition. This week is filled with non-stop excitement and is designed to motivate campers to put forth their best effort!

Awards Day

Parents are invited to attend our closing ceremonies, where each camper is recognized with an award. This day is loaded with special events and ensurses that camp finishes on a proud and positive note for all participants!

Putting It All Together
Every child is meant to feel like a "champion" for their efforts at camp. Important goals for all campers in our program include:

“Both my 11-year old daughter and my 6-year old son are crazy about the variety of activities offered at camp, and they cannot stop raving about their counselors. This is the ONLY camp around that they both love! Kudos to the Champion staff for making summer so much fun!”

- Stephanie N., Hillsborough Parent

We take great pride in giving ALL kids an amazing camp experience and can assure you that the girls at Champion have just as much fun as the boys do. We have an amazing track record of "winning over" girls who were reluctantly enrolled into our program and encourage you to give us a call at 415-602-0722 if you are on the fence to sign up your daughter. Seeing is believing, so be sure to check out this video which is dedicated exclusively to our lady champers!

A wide variety of sports, games, arts & crafts, field trips, and special camp contests gives Champion Summer Camp an especially unique camp format. Our diverse activities maximize fun and deliver a memorable experience to campers. Click here to see a list of activities offered at camp (under "Let's Play").

To keep all campers engaged, we customize each group's schedule by both age and gender. And while the schedule for 5 year old girls is very different from the one for 12 year old boys, both groups feel part of "something bigger" by being part of the unique camp environment we offer.

Before each session begins, your child will be assigned to a group of about 14 kids of the same gender and the same approximate age. Each group is led by an Executive Counselor and a Counselor, and most groups get additional support from a Counselor In Training (our oldest groups don't need this additional support). The campers and staff members in each group stay the same throughout the camp session. This continuity encourages positive social interaction and provides valuable consistency.

Our camp offers broad appeal to boys and girls ages 5 - 12. We have vast experience at dealing with kids of all different personalities (shy, domineering, etc...) and varying athletic ability. In addition to the convenience provided by our ability to host multiple kids of different ages and genders, we also award a 10% discount to siblings through our Additional Plan Discount. Teens ages 13 - 15 may be interested in our Counselor In Training (CIT) program.

If you'd like to give your child several weeks of healthy outdoor activity this summer, we invite you to consider additional time at Champion. Every session has a unique "personality", and we find that campers have just as much fun (if not more) on their second or third time through. Don't forget that you will save 10% on any extra time you sign up for through our Additional Plan Discount.
