From Our Parents
Linda H. - Discovery Camp parent
"Time flies when having fun. I am very happy with the choice I made to
bring my son to Kamp Extreme. I had a real hard time finding something
suitable for my son last year and I was dreading the end of the school
year but luckily I came across Kamp Extreme's flier for their summer
camp. I attended orientation and I was very pleased with all of the
instructors and their professionalism.
Extreme takes up the entire center used by the Family Bible Fellowship
in Newark. There is plenty of parking and they even block part of their
parking lot so the kids can go outside and play. Their classrooms are
huge and they provide tons of board games, crafts, air hockey and Foosball tables for the children to stay entertained. They have a
strict check-in and out procedures and there is no way to get through
the classrooms without walking by their front office first which is
always occupied by one or two of the camp instructors.
is about two blocks away from the center and right after lunch they pair
up the kids and walk to the park, if weather permits. They provide
parents with a calendar of events for each day so that we are informed
of the activities that the children will be doing every day. It's not
all fun and games however, Kamp Extreme also provides emotional and
character growth. During Session One for example, they went over the
importance of integrity for the K-1st graders. 2nd and 3rd graders
learned about who they are when no one is looking and 4th-5th graders
went over the meaning of true character.
In summary, I am extremely happy with my son's attendance in their camp and hope they stay around for years to come."

"I was really impressed with this little summer camp. I loved the idea
that they focus on teaching good moral values (honor, respect, charity,
faithfulness, honesty, integrity and responsibility) but I worried that
it would be too structured and take away from just enjoying the summer.
That was not the case. My kids loved going and I felt like my kids
were safe and happy there. They had all kinds of activities planned;
games, sports, walks to the park, field trips and even a very cool
performance the last week. My kids were never bored there. Every day
they made sure to let me know what they were missing out on because I
picked them up "too early". The facilities are spacious and well
maintained. The class groups are small and there is more than adequate
adult supervision. They reference bible passages in teaching the seven
core values and since my kids are curious about God, I welcomed that it
was incorporated into what they were learning. I was worried it would
be weird for us since we don't belong to any organized religion but it
wasn't. I was never asked any personal questions about religion. I
could tell the kids were definitely around positive influences. They
tell me everyone at Kamp Extreme is their friend."
