Welcome to our favorite time of year!  It’s time to safely reengage with small energetic cohorts of people.  It is time for your child to experience connectedness and develop social skills in a safe, creative and loving environment. The Realm has merged adventure, creativity, learning, and making memories in a way that exceeds required safety standards.

Many of us have spent the last few seasons at home with our kids. Although many great memories have been made, a need for your child to connect and be creative is present. It is time to stick a toe out and let your child be a part of  the outside world…with other people…doing things that are difficult to replicate at home…MESSY FUN ART!  The REALM is making this possible and SAFE!  Sewing, painting, glue, glitter, you name it!  It is time to inject some creative bliss into your child’s life! Each week prepare to be bedazzled by the delightful creations explored.  Let’s reconnect, explore the world and find our JOY!!

What is REALM Camp?

Escondido Falls, Malibu

While REALM Camp has become famous for our zany adventures, amazing art projects and our extraordinary, loving counselors, it’s more than that…

The REALM Camps are about doing the things you love while trying things that you have never done before. It’s about the joy of learning something new about yourself, or discovering a hidden talent or passion. It’s about stepping “outside the box,” feeling inspired and inspiring others. It’s about creating, learning, reflecting and sharing. It’s about exploring our world like a playground with a careful eye and open heart. It’s about unfiltered fun, contagious laughter and delight of exhaustion after a full day of adventure!

There are a zillion camps out there. What differentiates The REALM Camps from all others?

 

Our Philosophy

First and foremost, we want campers to have a ridiculously fun time. In addition, we also feel that we have a unique opportunity to help kids step out of their ordinary routine and jump into possibility, try something new and Seize their Greatness!!

 

Our Style

We love and nurture kids. We escort them towards success. We honor their strengths and support them through challenge. We invite them to take risks. We encourage them towards choices that work for both themselves and others. We honor, invite and look forward to each and every teachable moment.

 

Unique to REALM Camps

– The combination of artistic, academic & social education offered in combination and with equal importance
– Educators trained to teach in a style that encourages creativity and honors students unique strengths, passions and learning preferences
– Our ability to create distinctive opportunities that are designed to prepare students to thrive in an ever changing and constantly progressing world
– A constant consideration of everyone’s unique learning needs and a commitment towards getting those needs met!
– An unwavering commitment to the growth, joy and connection to every single camper at The REALM!

 

Our Activities

While many camps specialize heavily in one area such as arts, music, sports, etc., at The REALM Camps, we provide a wide variety of experiences and activities that will allow kids to freely work their creative muscles! Throughout our camp days, kids at The REALM are experiencing learning through doing, creating, collaborating and playing. Kids will start each day with some open play time followed by The Morning HUB! (High Fives & Hugs, Uh-nouncments, Breakdown).

Next stop: 3+ hours of fun! Kids will rotate through 2-3 activities that range from creative art projects and experiences relevant to the days theme to classes in science, music, puppetry, botany, yoga, theater, martial arts and more!

Lunch can happen at the center or on the go. Campers should pack a healthy lunch, snacks, and a refillable water bottle.

 

Our Staff

Our staff is like none other. It’s one thing to have a great mission and program of events, but all that is only a vision without awesome implementation. Our staff is dedicated. Our staff is creative and smart. Our staff is super experienced. Our staff feels like family. They will love your children unconditionally and believe in them relentlessly. From drop off to pick up, teachers are together with the kids to connect throughout the day!
