Champion Preparatory Academy was established to meet the growing demand for educational alternatives in the community. While we recently moved into the campus of the former Sweetwater Episcopal Academy, we have been a private school in central Florida since 1995. Champion is a 21st century school incorporating technology, high academic standards, traditional values, and a Christ-Centered education. Champion families may choose to enroll their student in our Day School Programs for 1, 4, or 5 days, based on your family’s needs. We additionally have a Homeschool Academy and offer online learning. We are committed to providing excellence in all that we do. You will see this vision of excellence and our mission to provide a more personalized approach in all that we do, from your initial contact with our admissions staff to becoming a valued family member here at Champion. We are excited to add summer camp to our list of choices for families in our community and know you will love it as much or more than previous camps held on this campus.
Each week will bring new wonder and joy for our campers as we change the theme. Campers will additionally enjoy all the fun expected at camp every week. We will incorporate recreational swimming and basic stroke lessons, kayaking (3rd grade & up) art, music, plenty of outdoor time, games, unstructured play on the playground, and STEAM each week while encouraging campers to make new friends, practice good sportsmanship and kindness. Students will rotate to all the stations throughout the day. There will never be a dull moment.
Our camp is designed for children in grades K-6
Our camp counselors are experienced teachers that additionally teach at our Day School. All counselors and aides are background checked and are trained on our high-tech security and safety procedures. We take camper and staff safety and security very serious.
Campers are divided by age and grade with a low ratio of campers to staff counselors. Under the guidance of camp counselors, children will form a cohesive unit and learn the value of friendship and teamwork. Action-packed fun is designed to give them a memorable summer and allow them to build friendships that will last a lifetime.
Whether your camper needs to brush up on reading skills, wants to accelerate learning or just enjoys reading, they will find this hour of small group reading instruction with our Day School reading teacher(s) enjoyable. Engaging reading activities will excite your student with a goal to teach the love of reading, and to review reading and comprehension skills. Students that enroll for this option will additionally use MobyMax, an online reading assessment and instruction program, and will be given access to use it at home until July 17. Should you like the MobyMax program, you can purchase a year access for $75.00 at the end of your summer program.
Campers will participate in a wide variety of sports and activities led by our sports instructors. Sports will be basketball, soccer, and developmental games for younger students with a focus on good sportsmanship, building basic skills along with a lot of encouragement and fun.
Campers will enjoy recreational time in the pool as well as basic stroke development with our swim instructor in our beautiful outdoor pool. Campers third grade and up will also enjoy canoeing on Lake Brantley. All water activities are under the supervision of experienced and certified lifeguards. Safety is our primary concern.
Children are encouraged to develop their own sense of creativity by working in a variety of mediums. Age-appropriate activities include: painting, drawing, clay sculpting, bead work, wood assemblage and multi-media collage, and more. Children enjoy the music experience through dance, limbo, rhythm instruments, karaoke and games.
Campers will enjoy our beautiful STEAM lab while learning coding and working with our robots. There will be many activities to challenge their minds with hands on learning and discovery.

Drop Off - Pick Up
Students will be dropped off at the Gym in the morning and picked up at the Gym in the afternoon. We will meet in the Gym each morning for Prayer and the Pledge and then divide into our age groups. Each Monday morning from 8:30-9:00 is open house so you can meet your camp counselors.
Wear modest and comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes. Campers that want to swim or canoe will need to wear their swimsuit under their clothing. Campers should bring underwear so they can take off their wet suit after swimming. Don’t forget a towel. Please make sure their name is on the towel. If campers do not want to swim/canoe (3rd grade and up) they will join the Sports/PE group. We will assume if they don’t have their swimsuit on that they don’t want to swim.
