Slovenski Camps

Slovenski Camps are guided by the Liberal Arts traditions of Western Civilization. Slovenski Camps believes in helping campers learn the Liberal Arts for Children: swimming, dodgeball, capture the flag, singing, dancing, paddling, sailing, manners, thoughtfulness, reading classics, and cleaning up after themselves. Summer camp should be a place free from the distraction of glowing screens. Campers learn to have fun the way their parents and grandparents did — playing outside. They engage in unique, exciting activities that teach real-life skills such as mental toughness, how to work alone and in teams, how to quickly adapt to new rules and conditions, and how to defend yourself with Battle Rockets and dodgeballs.

A week at camp includes an important and long stretch of time away from technology, phones, and social media when the brains of children and teenagers are developing mental habits and pathways of thinking. Campers enjoy in-person conversations all day. They are also participating in games, education, and exposure to the arts including classic literature, music, dance, and poetry. Campers hear and often learn to memorize poems such as "No Man is an Island" by John Donne, "If" by Rudyard Kipling, "The Happy Warrior" by William Wordsworth, and "The Walrus and the Carpenter" by Lewis Carroll. Camp also includes free time periods similar to the freedom children have during school recess or while playing with friends in the neighborhood.
