Charlotte Summer Camps for 2021
Looking for a summer camp in Charlotte for your child? We get a lot of requests from parents for summer camps, so we’ve put together a list of resources for you to explore.
It’s important to know that registration for some of the camps happens early–as early as late January–and spots can fill up quickly. So, research in advance so you know what you want to sign your child up for when the time comes.
We’re including information about some of the most popular summer camps, but it’s not a comprehensive list by any means! Scroll down for the Charlotte Parent’s Summer Camp Database. You’ll find many more camps there, including at schools and churches.
The church camps are usually the least expensive. Although we’re not including information on the many, many church camps and Vacation Bible Schools, just because of the sheer number of them, you should be able to find many of them in Charlotte Parent’s Database, and they are a great choice for the budget-conscious parent!
Also, please make sure to research and ask the individual camps about the safety measure camps are taking this year.

UCity Summer Camps guide | Charlotte Observer
The temperature may still be chilly outside, but, believe it or not, summer is just a few short months away. And, for many parents, that means making plans for summer camps to keep their children occupied. From athletics to art to arithmetic, UCity families have so many summer camp options that choosing just the right camp may seem intimidating. To help families that may be struggling with the selection process, three UCity summer camp providers share ways to help make choosing just a little easier.TalkEimear Goggin, who with Chuck Riordan is senior program manager for Camps on Campus at UNC Charlotte, says that the most important thing families can do when selecting the right summer camp is to talk.“Talk to the people running the program, talk to your children about their interests, talk to their friends and ask their friends’ parents for recommendations, talk to your child’s school and favorite teacher. Talk to us. We have programs in the widest possible variety of topics, and as long as your child wants to learn something, we can help,” she says.With seven camps per week for seven weeks over the summer, the UNC Charlotte Camps on Campus program offers camps focusing on everything from science, math and engineering to art, drama and music. With all camps typically filled to capacity at 20 children per camp, the program accommodated about 980 participants last year and expects to accomplish the same this summer.“We’re called Camps on Campus, and being on the university campus is what makes us different,” says Goggin. “We’re not just an outside group using the university’s classrooms to hold some generic programs, but we’re thoroughly integrated into the university fabric. We have excellent relationships with the people all over the campus who add to the experience we can offer – from dining services, who make sure our campers are well fed; to the campus security officers who keep an eye out for us and even direct traffic at daily pick-up; to the curriculum specialists in the Atkins Library, who will provide an expert on Children’s Literature or the history of NASA at the drop of a hat.”Determine GoalsIn addition to talking, YMCA Camping Experience Director Dave Bell suggests that parents should think about their goals for their child’s summer. He offers the following goals to consider when making a summer camp choice:I want my child to make friends.“Find out what the camp does to intentionally facilitate the act and skill of friendship-making,” he says. “Talk to the director and see what they do on the first day to get kids comfortable in a new group and what times there are throughout the week for kids just to interact with each other.”I want my child to learn new skills. “Most camps play lots of games, but is there intentional skill-building woven into the activities? Is there purpose behind the programming at the camp?” Bell suggests that parents ask.I want my child to have some type of educational enrichment. “Does the camp have story or reading time during the day? Are there any educational pieces throughout the session? Does it match up with grade requirements at local public schools?” asks Bell.The University City YMCA offers 33 different weekly camp options, including a wide range of sports, the arts and special themes, such as babysitting. Regardless of the camp focus, University City YMCA Marketing Director Jason Lampton says the key ingredient to any great camp is a great counselor.“We hire counselors with excellent character, strong values, enthusiasm and experience working with kids,” Lampton says. And before camp starts, counselors participate in more than 30 hours of instruction and training in child development, first aid and conflict resolution.InterviewHeather Jones, extension agent with 4-H Youth Development and spokesperson for the Cabarrus County 4-H Summer Fling program, says communicating with the camp program is key. “I suggest interviewing the leader of the camp to determine whether the needs and wants of the child fit the camp,” she says. Picking the right program is crucial, Jones says, because summer camps can have such a profound impact on participants. “Summer camps provide families with enrichment experiences they would not otherwise receive,” she says. “They allow young people to experience new people, places and things. Many life skills learned at summer camp are not learned in other settings.”With ten summer camps encompassing topics such as the responsibilities of citizenship and exploring the world of agriculture, the Cabarrus County 4-H Summer Fling program can help to fill a void in the typical child’s education.“The programs have small group sizes and are all interactive,” Jones says. “In our camps, participants have the opportunity to think creatively, work collaboratively, and solve problems.”

Aiken attended Raleigh High School in Lisville Road and took courses at Campbell University before enrolling at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. In 1995, Clay joined the YMCA. While still in high school, Clay quickly realized what could change the lives of young people.  He discovered his interest in special education while directing YMCA children’s camps as a teenager, and at 19 he worked as a classroom teacher for autistic students at Brentwood Elementary School in Raleigh. It was during this experience that he decided to graduate from college and become a special education teacher.  While at college in Charlotte, he took a part-time job as an assistant to a boy with autism, and it was the child’s mother, Diane Bubel, who encouraged him to audition for American Idol. Although his American Idol activities temporarily shelved his academic studies, Aiken completed his coursework during the tour and received his BA in Special Education in December 2003. 
On August 8, 2008, Aiken announced the birth of his son in North Carolina on his personal blog: “My dear friend James and I are so delighted to announce the birth of Parker Foster Aiken.”  The baby’s mother James Foster is the producer’s sister.David Foster is the executive producer of Aiken’s last three albums on the RCA label. “The little man is healthy, happy and as noisy as his dad,” Aiken wrote. “Mom James is doing well, too.”  In our book Learning to Sing: Hearing Music in Your Life Aiken said: “It is a southern tradition to call your name by your grandmother’s maiden name.”  Aiken’s middle name comes from his paternal grandmother’s maiden name; he and Foster used their mothers’ family names to name their son.

It was written with Allison Glock and published by Random House.Barely mentioning American Idol Instead, Aiken turned his attention to the people who had the greatest influence on his life – his mother, grandparents, siblings, teachers and friends – and the importance of religion in his life. He describes himself as a proud Southern Baptist who, in his late teens, departed from these roots in search of a religion with more liberal social policies. He then returned to this church because of family and social ties, although on some issues he still has disagreements with the church.
When asked at PBS Kids In an interview to name his idols, he replied: “When people ask me which three people I would like to dine with, dead or alive, I say: Jesus Christ, Mr. Rogers and Jimmy Carter. “

Sports and study in the USA or how an athlete to get to America (sports scholarship in the USA) ? – How professional basketball players become overseas
In this post I will tell you what you need to do if you are an athlete and want to get to America, but are not ready to pay for your education at $ 30.000- $ 40.000 per year .
In other words, I’ll write about how to get a sports scholarship to study in America.
(Sports scholarship – money allocated by an educational institution to pay for education, accommodation and meals for an athlete during his studies)
Also, when I was just starting to play basketball, my father had a dream that one day, thanks to sports, his son would be able to get to America and he would have the opportunity to combine education with basketball.
At about 15 years old, I also got fired up with the idea of moving to the States and, having no connections in America and not knowing anything about the children’s basketball system in this country, I began to collect information bit by bit from various sources.
As a result, at the age of 19, I managed to move to America (before that, having played a year at the Italian Basketball Academy).
During this time, I have accumulated a huge amount of knowledge about how sports are organized in America at the school and university levels, and now I see that getting there is not so difficult when you have the necessary information.
In this article, I want to describe the steps by which you can contact American coaches and try to get an athletic scholarship.
I will write on the example of basketball, but the same methods are similar for obtaining a sports scholarship (tuition, accommodation, meals, etc. at the expense of an educational institution) for any sport for which it is possible to receive funding in America.
1. Determine where you need to go .
It is advisable to have basic information about American educational institutions, namely, to read what High School, Prep School, Post Graduate School, Junior College and Universities in the USA are.
I will write more detailed information on educational institutions in the next entry, because there are many nuances here.
For example, if you take school education, then in American schools they study for 12 years, plus, you can still take an additional 13 year of school (Post Graduate Year), respectively, in America they graduate from school later, schoolchildren can be found there even at 20 and 21 years old.
There are also many interesting points about colleges and universities, for example, many foreign athletes first enter not universities, but Junior College (2-year college), because entrance exams (SAT, TOEFL) are not needed there and there are much more chances to get a sports scholarship to college , because the level of basketball there is slightly lower than at universities.
2. Prepare your game video, compose a short story about yourself (your achievements in studies and sports).
First of all, you need to make your basketball video so that you can present yourself to American coaches.
It is advisable to make the video in the form of Highlights – i.e. slicing your best gaming moments from games and workouts.
A good example of a basketball video made by my teammate from Serbia.
Next, write a short summary. Indicate in it your date of birth, height, weight, position on the site.
Describe your main achievements in sports (example: champion of Russia among youths born in 1995, member of the Moscow Oblast basketball team, etc.)
Academic achievement is also important and will add to your resume. Coaches in America pay a lot of attention to the academic performance of athletes.
3.1 Start communicating with schools / colleges.
The most commonplace, but at the same time the most difficult way to get in touch with American coaches is to write them directly to their mail.
It is not difficult to find the coach’s contacts, go to the website of any school / college, choose the basketball section and usually the coach’s contacts are there in a conspicuous place.
However, the coach’s letters to the players are not often answered, because the coaches receive dozens of letters a day, and they may simply lose sight of your letter.
Let’s say you want to go to High school in Florida
You score in the search engine High Schools in Florida and immediately Wikipedia will give you a list of all schools in Florida (http: // en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_high_schools_in_Florida)
Find a coach’s contact and send him your video and resume.
In fact, this method is the most dreary. From my own experience, I will say that only 30-35% of coaches will answer you and if you are not a very promising player, then there is little chance that you will be offered a lot of funding.
However, this is a working way, at one time I sent about 300 letters to various schools and from them there were several adequate proposals.However, if you do not play at a high level at home, it will not be easy to get the coaches interested in this way, and you will spend a lot of time.
3.2 Contact people who have already left for America and ask them for advice.
I think this is the most effective way, because you can talk to a person who knows this kitchen from the inside.
For all questions about obtaining a sports scholarship, finding a school / college, necessary documents, etc. you can always write to me.
I will explain to you the admission system in more detail and will be able to assess your chances of getting an athletic scholarship.
You can also find contacts of other guys who now live and play in the USA.
A person who went through all the difficulties of admission himself, like no one else, will be able to answer your questions and tell you how to leave for America with minimal financial costs.
3.3 Go to basketball camp in America or Europe.
In the USA and Europe, many camps / gatherings are constantly organized, where you can not only raise your level of play, but you will also have a great opportunity to communicate with guys from all over the world, expand your horizons of knowledge and make useful contacts.
Let’s say, having gone once to a basketball camp in the United States, you can see American basketball with your own eyes, show yourself to local coaches and talk to them.
Also in the summer in America, Exposure Camps are organized – this is something like screenings, where many coaches from colleges and schools come to look for players for the next season.
If someone is interested in the options with training camps, write, I can tell you in more detail
Let’s summarize . If you are sure that coaches in the USA will be able to see you as a promising athlete, then do not hesitate to send letters, your video to coaches and let them know about yourself in every possible way.
However, if you try to enter an American educational institution without using the help of knowledgeable people, then this process can be delayed.
I advise you to contact people who have gone through all this on their own experience and will be able to share their baggage of knowledge.
If you have any questions, I am always ready to answer them and give my advice:

Your choice. The most frightening games
Good day, dear readers!
Now it’s time to draw a line under the next material from the series “TOP-10: Your Choice”, the theme of which is the most frightening computer games. If anyone missed the beginning, we remind you that the choice of dozens was done exclusively by our users, who first offered their options on the forum, and then voted for the best.Our task now is to tell about the results in this material and, in fact, show them in the video attached to the article. What will we do.
So, we meet – the most frightening computer games in the opinion of our users!
10th place: Obscure 2.15 votes.
Youth “horror films” are a very rare topic for games. The French entertainers from Hydravision Entertainment knew from the very beginning that world fame and tightly packed bags of dollars Obscure would not bring them.”Horror” nowadays are not in demand and are gradually being replaced by more pop action games with dead girls in the lead roles.
Obscure 2 may not be a good game, but the atmosphere of a low-budget and very youthful “horror” is there. You can’t take that away. As it should be, pretty university students are cut to pieces, they scream and scream “Stan, help me!” doors.Canons! At one point, a close-knit group of heroes will definitely decide to split up, and how many people will survive by the final – not a single astrologer can predict this.
Will there be Obscure 3 or not? It’s more of a finance issue. Hydravision Entertainment has been grazing lately, producing lighter and more casual projects. But who knows – maybe in the distant future the story of careless schoolchildren who survived two parts of Obscure will be continued. There are loopholes for the sequel.
9th place: Resident Evil 5.480 votes.
Resident Evil 5 took and split the camp of its admirers into two parts. One, which began to turn up her nose even when the Resident Evil 4 appeared, spat savoryly in the face of the fifth part and loudly slammed the door. Arivederchi, Resident Evil everyone loved so much! Bonsuar, sunny Africa and funny winks from Gears of War.
Those who remained just shrugged their shoulders and went again to play Resident Evil 5 , revealing the remaining figures with characters.No one argues that the fifth part did not bring anything new to the series – all these “cooperatives”, with all due respect, look superfluous and completely unnecessary, and the childishly direct system of shelters causes only laughter.
Nevertheless, Resident Evil 5 contains a bit of that very essence and squeeze from the old, vigorous and combative Resident Evil. There is very little of it, enough literally to “indulge in nostalgia” and immediately return to the dashing promenade through the sunlit shrouds and sparse laboratories.But it is there. And that’s already good.
8th Place: Penumbra: Overture. 481 votes.
Penumbra: Overture has benefited to some extent from the fact that Frictional Games is an independent studio and does not have a lot of money to create something extraterrestrial. It is the lack of great attention to detail, the monotonous and impenetrable darkness in an abandoned mine that does not suffer from textural abundance, that makes it unique in its kind.
Every rustle, every sound coming from the underground, if it does not make you turn back and quickly flee to some safe corner, then your heart will surely skip a beat.Lack of lighting, rare footage from former staff and a big secret kept in the snow-covered mines leave a lasting impression. Not an animal fear, but a feeling of some kind of discomfort, from which one wants to get rid of, but it does not work out – it hurts well Frictional Games laid the rails in the mines. Quitting such an unforgettable and somewhat frightening adventure is simply impossible.
And the more interesting it will be to look at Amnesia: The Dark Descent (PC) – a new horror from Frictional Games , which should be released in August this year.
7th place: Anabiosis: Sleep of reason. 608 votes.
How many good action games do you know from the CIS? Not much, yes. “Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason” – just an exception to the rule. That rarity, which you will not put on the throne, but you will not shyly cover your eyes. And the main pillar of “Anabiosa” is a well-developed and “living” world. The world, however, is small. Quite miniature, but placed in the rotten icebreaker “North Wind” and equipped with a real story with its dead team, plot nodes and no less intriguing visits to the past.
Action Forms has perfectly managed to combine what can only be seen in true horror films. She managed to make the players literally fear the cold. It seems like cold is a common thing! But when this same chill runs over the deck of the “North Wind” – jokingly you are imbued with all the horror and hopelessness of the situation of poor Alexander Nesterov. His unenviable fate!
6th place: Condemned: Criminal Origins. 613 votes.
And what happens if you combine the cruelty of Manhunt and a plot that goes back to the ancient “Silence of the Lambs”? The answer is simple – Condemned: Criminal Origins .The plot twists and turns with the search for a serial maniac and false accusations here are decorated with the crunch of broken bones, cervical vertebrae and teeth knocked out by a rusty pipe.
Fear takes already from how lifeless and ugly ordinary people are shown here. Losers, dregs of society, drug addicts, crime trash – all the street bouquet that can be found at night in the American slums. The unhurried crime story quickly turns scarlet – despite the FBI agent’s badge, the protagonist hardly thought about such a thing as mercy.The necks are unscrewed with one click of the mouse, the knee cups are broken with one precise blow of the sledgehammer.
Condemned 2: Bloodshot increased the level of madness and cruelty, but the game did not want to look on the PC. And he is unlikely to want to ever in the future – with Monolith Productions , the scandals that arose during the release of the sequel on consoles were enough.
5th place: Silent Hill 3.1005 votes.
The penultimate game from a galaxy of talented Japanese who worked under the roof of Team Silent .A few more years will pass and the close-knit team will be disbanded. Someone will go to work on the Forbidden Siren franchise, someone will stay in Konami , but will no longer participate in the development of Silent Hill . A sad story, in general.
Silent Hill 3 contains all the elements and pieces of the mosaic for which we love Silent Hill. Music from Akira Yamaoka never gets old. The art style of Masahiro Ito is as always divine, and the script from Hiroyuki Owaku, the one who wrote the most frightening love story for Silent Hill 2, remains one of the best and most confusing ever of the Survival Horror genre .A flashlight, a flapping radio, a dark corridor and mysterious characters … To be honest, nothing else is required for happiness. Two words is a brilliant game.
And it’s a pity that Team Silent will never be revived. Silent Hill’s last patron Akira Yamaoka recently left Konami . It is pointless to expect a pleasant surprise from American barbarians. Alas.
4th place: Doom 3.1203 votes.
The first parts of Doom could hardly be called so “frightening” – rather meaty and funny.At a tender age, it was somehow impossible to get scared at the sight of angular demons – I wanted more to plant pellets in a horned head and see a square fountain of blood. And 3D! Three-dimensional environments were rare in those days.
Doom 3 is hard to compare to those dusty archaeological exhibits. The third part changed the idea of Doom in the minds of fans. id Tech 4 with its powerful shadows cast on the bodies of zombies and the muscular carcasses of demonic spawn made even the last daredevils afraid.The one who bravely says that he has never been scared of the ghouls jumping out and crawling out of all the holes – either he never played Doom 3 , or is lying ineptly. A masterful play of light and shadow, sterile futuristic laboratories – everything works for a unique “Martian” atmosphere.
It’s even scary to think what id Software is going to do for Doom 4. But one thing all the players agree – we are waiting for another masterpiece. It’s hard to argue with that.
3rd Place: F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. 1290 votes.
Asian horror movies have an unwritten rule – never show how a character is cut or dismembered. All fear should be focused not on cruelty, but on the expectation of something terrible. Even if nothing terrible happens. Everything is based on simple human psychology – we are more afraid of what might happen, rather than what is happening at the moment.
Monolith Productions took this experience and took over the development of the first F.E.A.R., where a mystical story about a girl with paranormal powers became the central theme and the basis for the background. In fact, all the “fear” was enclosed in rivers of blood and a shimmering female silhouette that appeared every ten steps. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin did not step aside and continued on its way, frightening the pumped up special forces with stunted skeletons and blood dripping from the ceiling. And she did it – third place.
By the way, on Monolith Productions you can put up a sign of the studio that makes the most “frightening games” – two of its projects are in the top at once.
2nd place: S.T.A.L.K.E.R .: Call of Pripyat. 2011 votes.
Well, where can we go without S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ? The brainchild of the Ukrainian studio GSC Game World is like an icon for Russian players. The area around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant has long been a sacred place. Mecca, to which the masses go every year. Since they respect and know that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is one of the best projects of recent times, which was given the birth of developers with passports of the CIS.
The area around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant itself is not the most pleasant place for children’s excursions. GSC Game World did a great job not to ruin, not to destroy the very post-apocalyptic and partly radioactive scent of the “Zone”. We do not know how many people were killed under such a load and volume of work, but the final result will force many to play with their mouths open, exploring every destroyed location and every destroyed house. And always frightened when some bloodsucker jumps out from around the corner.
Congratulations to GSC Game World ! She has silver.
1st place: Dead Space. 2278 votes.
Meet the winner! Dead Space bypassed all its competitors and deservedly climbed the podium. To give such a gorgeous game less than the first place is by no means possible. After all, she is the only sci-fi horror story in the past few years that not only offered an interesting story, but also excellent gameplay.
It seems that cutting necromorphs into pieces will never get bored.Rummaging through the system of upgrades, hanging new “nodes” on the old plasma cutter – too. Jumping in zero gravity and walking in airless space is still insanely fun. Turn even now Dead Space – it will still be the best in its genre. For too long we have been waiting for the coming of the “smart” horror movie. Necromorphs are 21st century Aliens. You couldn’t imagine a more generous compliment.
Dead Space 2, of course, raises some concerns – the developers talk a lot about the action, forgetting for some reason to mention Survival Horror .We believe and hope for the best. We’ll think about the worst when Dead Space 2 goes on sale.
In the meantime – higher your nose! Dead Space , gold medal, first place and fiery suction on the cheek from users PlayGround.
