Shibley is a place for our families to gather throughout the year! We also participate in and sponsor many community and school events so that we can keep in touch throughout the year. Some of our favorite year-round events include:
Fall & Spring Festivals
These two events (October & May) are for the whole family! Games, music, refreshments, air bungee, Green Giant, zip lining and a chance to enjoy our beautiful 20 acre wooded facility with family and friends.
Winter Indoor Craft & Play Days
We invite campers for crafts, games, races and free play in the beautiful mansion we call Attara which is the large white house in camp and formerly the residence of our founder, Jeannie Shibley. These take place monthly in January, February and March.
Earth Day Open Play & Picnic
Each year around Earth Day in April we will open camp on a Saturday for our families to play and picnic on our beautiful grounds.
Junior Camper Pool Party & Bus Rides (& Pre-camp Private Swim Lessons)
We invite our youngest campers to come splash around in our pools and take a short ride on the bus in June before camp starts. Parents will supervise but lifeguards and bus counselors will be on duty! This is another opportunity for our youngest campers to meet Shibley staff, make friends and familiarize themselves with our environment.
Another great way to get a head start is to sign up for private or semi-private swim lessons on the weekends in June.
Family Outing to Citi Field
Each year we reserve a section of tickets for a pre-camp outing to the ballpark. Families with children of the same age are strategically placed in nearby seats. Children and parents mingle with our leadership team and summer staff.
Parties & Events
We have indoor and outdoor space available for birthday parties, graduation parties and other events for children and families. Host a pool party in June, July or August! Please email email@example.com for more info, rates and available dates.
