It's old school play in a new school way where we think, play, and live, the good life all day! It’s a wacky, wild, adventure day camp that has kids going home exhausted at the end of the day and coming back the next morning begging for more!
A typical day may include some combination of challenges, team-building, crafts, adventures, obstacle courses, cardboard creations, a snack shack, heavy doses of nature and wet or messy play. Read about A Day in the Life of a Camper here.
We aren't like the other camps. Here is what makes us different:
We are HEAVILY programmed on-site, and we are fast-paced. A lot of behind the scenes intentionality and thought has been put into activities, games, and the overall flow of each day. Every twenty or so minutes something new is happening.
SMashBox kids are on the MOVE. Kids at our camp are given freedom, but less free time, so there is less sitting around at SMashBox.
We embrace the MESS because as every parent knows, most kids love to be messy. This means things like paint and cardboard, mud and sticks, water everywhere, shaving cream, colored powder, face paint, balloons, food fights, and more.
We have SMashBucks and the Snack Shack. All morning kids have opportunities to earn our fake camp currency for showing great character, then spend those bucks on toys and treats when the sun is high and hot.
Our camper to counselor ratios are lower than other camps. Connecting campers to engaged role models is part of what makes campers want to keep coming back!
There's a ton more that makes us so special, but we can't give away all our secrets. You're just going to have to check us out for yourself.
Our playground isn't like other playgrounds, and it's got STEAM written all over it (just don't tell the kids - we wouldn't want them to think they are learning something during summer break!) It's a "Loose Parts Playground" and it's a little bit indoor in the AC and a little bit outdoor.

We are located at 6501 NW Saint James Dr. in Port Saint Lucie. We have 4,000 sq ft of indoor space and 5 acres of outdoor space. We will move into our spot and begin prepping camp at the end of May. We would love for you to swing by and say hi before camp starts!
Camp kicks off at 9:30 am with a wild, wacky and a little bit wierd ice-breaker. Campers are then broken out into groups by age / grade and gender. Groups rotate through scheduled activities which are planned to engage the whole child and all of their senses. One activity may be creative and engage the mind, while another is physical and involves tons of energy, teamwork and working together, and yet another involves independent problem solving. The afternoon includes the opening of the snack shack (yum-town!), another crazy group game, and the "main event." The main event is something like capture the flag with squirt guns, or color wars, or flour baseball, or a food fight - if we dream it, we do it!
There are loose themes each week to keep things new and exciting, but the general flow is mostly the same. (We say mostly, because we leave room for camper momentum to take us off course as necessary!)
Outdoor activities are staggered with indoor activities to give campers a chance to cool off and chill out.
Wrap around care makes use of our loose parts playground which is a little bit outside and even a little bit inside too!
The camp rate is $150 / week (9am-3:30pm). Wrap-around care starting at 7:30am and ending at 5:30pm is available for $30 / week. We can also offer a daily rate. Call us for details: 480.395.2980. Only a certain number of spots are available at this price, then it goes up, so book now!
