Heroes On The Move

Heroes on the Move is back!
We will be so glad to see YOU!

What’s a summer without some fun and adventure in it?  Our HOTM Day Camps can give your child a week of learning and fun.  Online registration for our Heroes on the Move (HOTM) Day Camps is now open!  Exciting new programs are being introduced that we know are going to have your camper excited for Day Camp.  Please read the thorough descriptions of our SU Sports Camp and Creative Arts Camp below before choosing a program for your camper.

Due to COVID-19 and with guidelines given to us by the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit we are limiting capacity in each camp.  SU Sports Camp maxes at 45 campers each weekly session.  Creative Arts Camp maxes at 30 campers for the one-week session.  Campers may choose the Day Camp of their choice, and for the really eager campers we are permitting campers to choose one week of SU Sports Camp plus one week of Creative Arts Camp, should they wish.  Campers will be put into cohorts with assigned huddle coaches and will stay within that cohort for the duration of the day.  Cohort groups will not mix at any point during the day.  This year campers are asked to bring a lunch due to foodservice restrictions.

We know the current situation is fluid and the health unit could change guidelines for the better or for the worse at any time.  When you register your camper, we are not invoicing you right away.  You will receive an email signifying that the registration has been received.  Once we have certainty that Day Camp is on, invoices will be sent out in mid June with all the information you need to prepare your camper for their summer adventure at Day Camp. In the event that camp is cancelled due to Covid all fees that have been made will be refunded.

Ready to choose your week?  Read on!  Since these programs are new we are giving you as much information as possible so you can make a great choice for your camper!

Something new in 2021!  This year, we are partnering with Scripture Union for a brand new Sports Camp experience!  At SU Sports Camps, the Coach is Jesus and the challenge is to follow him!

Start getting excited!  The week will be packed with skill development, games, scrimmages, and awards, as the campers rotate through 3 sports – soccer, ball hockey, and a daily mystery sport! This will be a recreational sports camp, meaning the emphasis will be on having a blast while also growing in confidence and making new friends. Best of all, we will be looking at the Greatest Coach of All time who invites you to be His friend; that is…Jesus!  This will be an unforgettable time and we can’t wait to see you!

John O’Sullivan from the Changing the Game Project says this: “it is crucial for a child under the age of 13 to participate in more than one sport”.  At SU Sports Camp, under the kind hand of SU interns and Stayner Camps’ own huddle coaches, campers will be encouraged through every activity.  These leaders are excited about working with 6 to 12-year-olds.  Exceptional coaching fosters teamwork and a sense of belonging during each sports session and daily team talk. Don’t miss out on this camp experience at Stayner Camp this summer!

There are two SU Sport Camp sessions.  Choose one!  If you wish you can also sign up for the one-week session of Creative Arts Camp.

Here are the highlights of the creative arts activities your campers will participate in:

You’ll also learn how to add your own unique style to a pre-existing painting.  Your painting will go home with you to show off to family and friends.

Drawing Basics led by Larissa Ward

Print Making led by Larissa Ward
Learn how to design and create a print of your very own.  Have fun experimenting with inks and colors.  Learn about patterns and shapes found in nature to create beautiful prints that can be used over and over again.  Once their print is ready, campers will be making t-shirts of their prints to take home.

Song Writing Basics led by Stephen Preston and Kaitlyn Biehn
In this class you will learn the 4 elements of what makes a great song:  melody, chords, lyrics and emotion.  Learn about song structures, genres, how to create great lyrics, and how to record your ideas.  We will listen to examples and learn how to build your own song from the ground up.

Electronic Music led by Nathan McKay
Learn the basics of making a song using software and field recording devices.  You will have fun and get creative during the process.  Record samples in and around the camp and using your own voices, organize them into songs.  Campers will get a glimpse of electronic music production and how modern pop songs are made.  Campers will be emailed their work and can celebrate their work and enjoy the song with their families.

Storytelling led by Stephen and Tricia Preston
Come and learn the wonderful world of how to write and tell a great story. We will have fun finding story ideas and characters from doodles, create fun rhymes for your story, and learn from the best storyteller of all time!  Campers will have a great time making memories for everyone who hears their story and learn effective ways to engage their audience.

Sculpture & Paper Maché led by Stephen and Tricia Preston

Nature Journal led by Larissa Ward
Have fun discovering art in nature and create your very own nature journal.  Learn how to find things in nature to use for dyes and prints, creating wonderful covers and pages.  Campers will then learn how to bind their book with stitching.  You will have a chance to fill your pages with plenty of nature drawings during the week and learn new techniques along the way.

Portraits & Cartooning & Caricatures led by Larissa Ward and Tricia Preston
Campers will learn how to draw a face with proper proportions and then have a chance to capture their own look.  We will then take our portraits and learn how to turn them into fun caricatures and cartoons.
