Girls in Charge
Our week-long thematic programs for girls entering grades 4-5 are rooted in creative play and exploration. Students will dive into a variety of imaginative projects that will culminate in a celebration and showcase of student work. Even though we will be working from home, we will collaborate and join our creative efforts to create unique performances and installations online! Students will pick up a supply kit from Archer that includes materials for all projects. Campers will “travel virtually” to different destinations all over the world (real and imaginary) from their very own home. On Fridays, family and friends will join the campers in the “reveal” of their artwork and creations!
Girls in Action
Archer has curated an exciting and varied program for girls entering grades 6-12 that offers weekly virtual workshops on topics ranging from podcasting to studio art. Workshops emphasize project-based learning and creative exploration. Workshops are designed to promote learning a new skill or area of academics led by our expert faculty.
Girls on Stage
Our four-week summer musical theatre intensive offers girls entering grades 6-9 a conservatory-type experience focusing on the areas of voice, acting, and performance. Students will rehearse and perform a full-length musical and participate in weekly cabarets and playwriting workshops.

Have you ever thought, “Why Camp Kids Klub?” From our favorite songs, to hilarious games, special surprises and yummy treats, our camp has tons of unique traditions that campers look forward to each summer. We guarantee that we’ll keep the energy high and the fun flowing throughout the camp day!
We believe that camp is an essential experience in a child’s life. Camp is about the feeling that anything is possible. Children should spend their time at camp on adventures and having dynamic experiences- learning, playing, making lifelong friends, and being surrounded by people that inspire them.
As our camp song says, “In 1995, Kids Klub arrived!”, and we have been perfecting summer camp ever since! Here are some of our favorite things!
Above all, Camp Kids Klub is all about friendships, new and old! Whether you have been coming to camp for five years or it is your first day, you can count on making friends right away. To that end, we do team building first thing every Monday morning so that campers get to know one another and their counselors. Moreover, throughout the week we continue to play wacky games during group time to solidify these bonds. We believe that camp friendships are some of the strongest friendships you can have. We love seeing those friendships grow year after year!
Each week at Camp Kids Klub is organized around an exciting Theme. Hence, during “International Week” we learn about different countries and cultures through cooking, dance, art, and sports, and every child gets their very own passport! For “Island Adventure Week” we’ll act like pirates and have a Luau party! Another favorite at Camp Kids Klub is “Olympic Week”, our annual all-camp competition between the Yellow, Blue, and Green Team, who will win this year!? No matter the theme, we plan events that everyone will enjoy!
Finally, this is your opportunity to be a cowboy, alien, wizard, or superhero! We will have a costume contest with prizes for everyone who dresses up. Staff look forward to dress-up days as much as the campers! Don’t be surprised if your counselor suddenly turns into a purple-haired Rock Star!

Online programs include STEM, Art, Film, Acting, Fitness, Dance, Cheer, Book Club, or a combination of activities.
