For campers ages 5 through 13, the Spirit of Summer comes to life through the power of Kidcam Camp at Chappapeela Playground.

Campers celebrate a different theme each week, while incorporating a curriculum filled with sports, creative arts, STEM, team building games, life skills, onsite field trips, talent shows, swimming and water play, along with 50 years of memorable Kidcam traditions.


Based in the gymnasiums, campers also enjoy the playgrounds, splash pad, outdoor greenspace and ball fields.  Camp will also offer extended hours with Before & After Care, as well as the ability to schedule week-to-week, as camp is needed.

Celine Belcher

Celine Belcher, has been a part of the Kidcam family for 3 years now! We are so excited to have her back at Chappapeela for the Summer 2023 season!


During the school year Celine is a  Kindergarten special education teacher at Hammond Eastside and has coached volleyball at Hammond Eastside for the past 9 years. In the winter she serves as lead instructor for Chappapeela Sports park’s volleyball recreational program. She is so excited to make this summer at Chappapeela the best summer yet! 


As a child Celine had the privilege of experiencing church camps and various sports camps in the summers. She knows first hand the positive impact camp can have on a child and feels lucky to be responsible for creating these same opportunities and moments for children throughout the community. She can not wait to see how Kidcam Camps impacts your camper(s) this summer.

Kidcam Summer Camp is excited for our fourth summer at Chappapeela Sports Park, located just north of I-12 in Hammond. This location gives campers access to large indoor spaces, excessive green space, sports fields, 3 playgrounds and an onsite Splash Pad, in addition to the great Kidcam program and summer curriculum.

Accreditation

Kidcam Camps is proud to be Accredited by the American Camp Association. ACA Accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation every year — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. ACA collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety. ACA accreditation assures families that camps have made the commitment to a safe, nurturing environment for their children. ACA standards are recognized by courts of law and government regulators as the standards of the camp community.
