2022 kiddywampus Summer Camps
2 and 3 day Summer Camp at kiddywampus for children ages 3-10. A variety of camps at both Chanhassen and Hopkins, MN locations.
One of our favorite camps each summer, led by owner Amy Saldanha – campers will each receive a giant cardboard box and tons of other supplies to build the fort of their dreams. The sky’s the limit when our imaginations are engaged—we’ve seen restaurants, dino lairs, pet shops, space ships...what will you create?! Campers will take their own epic fort home with them at the end of camp. (Note: this camp is very open-ended depending on the campers’ ages &amp; interests.)
We’ll spend 3 days in the imaginary world of Doc -- where we are all helpers! We’ll help “mend” toys, adopt stuffed pets, learn how to take care of them, and recreate Doc’s magic stethoscope to take home with us!
Calling all superheroes…join us for the fast-paced combination of games, projects and activity of the summer. Inspired by the likes of Wolverine, Spiderman, Batman and others, we’ll make masks and capes, create super hero scenes for our favorite characters and set the stage for an epic battle. Super Hero attire welcome but not required. Please come ready to save the world
Join Captain Barnacles, Kwazii, Peo, Inkling and the rest of the team as we explore the ocean, learn about sea creatures and make our very own Octopods.
Bring your imaginations as we train to become secret ninja spies! We’ll learn about famous spies, create our own spy tools and go on a “daring” secret mission to rescue the toys at kiddywampus.
Join Thomas, Percy, Edward and all their friends on the Island of Sodor for arty adventures and games. We’ll even paint our own train to take home!
Ahoy, matey! In our most rambunctious camp of the summer, we’ll make our own pirate ships, walk the plank and search for treasure in the party room.
The best place to make tons of slime…at kiddywampus and not at home!! We’ll make several different kinds of slime and show you how to make art with your new favorites.
If you like diggers, backhoes and concrete mixers, this camp is for you! Each camper will create their own construction site complete with levers, pulleys and other simple machines. We will build bridges, buildings, skyways and invent our own designs.
Calling all Paw Patrol fans -- Ryder needs our help! We will make puppy masks, shields, paw prints and a key to the city. Join us in the Paw Patrol Search and Rescue and hear stories about your favorite Paw Patrol friends!
