Smoky Mountain Sk8way Offers a FUN SUMMER DAY CAMP


With summer around the corner, many parents find themselves struggling to find fun, educational activities to schedule for their children. Working parents scramble to find childcare providers who offer a safe environment while still delivering their kids some real summer fun. Smoky Mountain Sk8way & FUN ZONE has once again partnered with area teachers and specialists to offer a fun, affordable, healthy and safe summer day camp experience for kids who’ve finished kindergarten through sixth grade. Skate, Learn, Play is the theme!

This year the summer camp has gone the extra mile to become an officially licensed camp by the State of North Carolina which allows them to accept subsidized payments from Southwestern Child Development. The Sk8way has also added a 5,000 sq ft outdoor park for the kids to play in, new games and activities and even better, most will agree, they will have nutritious breakfast and lunches provided by the Haywood County School System.

“This is not your ordinary summer camp”, explains Camp Director Sandra Christopher, “We are action packed with activities, skill building, educational and friend making fun! Your kids will not be bored this summer, that’s for sure!”

Activities will be both on site and off site. Every Monday a specialist will come in and give a class like hula hooping from Kelly Timco, self defense, creative dance, dog training, etc. Every Tuesday the campers head out for field trip day and visit places like the WNC Nature Center, Bowling at Country Side Lanes, trips to the post office, fire station, library, movies, Cherokee, putt-putt and more! A different field trip every week. Wednesdays are on site activities like roller skating games and skate lessons, arts and crafts, climbing wall, team building, and culinary fun, just to name a few. Every Thursdays is a trip to the Waynesville Recreation Center for swimming, a trip to the park and a picnic. Fridays are on site and the day the Sk8way invites other camps to join in for an afternoon of skating, games and inflatable fun. The Smoky Mountain Sk8way Summer Camp and it’s camp counselors strive to make it a “Summer to Remember” for everyone.

The camp offers flexible scheduling to work with parent’s schedules and summer vacations. Camp hours are 7:30pm – 5:30pm. Full time enrollment (4-5 days a week) is $110 and part time is $90 (1-3 days a week). Parents can choose the days and weeks they want their child to attend. Part-time campers are accepted according to availability. There is a $60 enrollment fee to reserve your child’s space for summer and comes with a camp tshirt that the campers are asked to wear on the off site activity days. Registration starts May 15th.
