Camp Spotlight: Up a Creek
With both indoor and outdoor play areas and exciting field trips planned throughout Northeast Alabama, Up a Creek Indoor Family Adventures, has engaging camp activities for all ages. We sat down (virtually) with camp director, Jordan Rogers, to find out more about Up a Creek’s upcoming camps.
Up A Creek Indoor Family Adventures has a new location! Hampton Cove is still under the direction of owner, Jordan Rogers. But now, with a new facility in Madison, Up A Creek can offer summer camp in two locations. Jennifer Rogers, a veteran elementary teacher, is the program director in Madison and offers the same awesomely adventurous and active summer camp Hampton Cove has been enjoying. Using the indoor play place has home base, there is never a dull moment. Up A Creek has exciting field trips planned each week of camp with lots of swimming and splashing, too. Up A Creek boasts an indoor rock wall, inflatables, mechanical surfboard and great white shark ride, ball pit and foam pit, indoor and outdoor play areas, and each have an air hockey table. You can find Madison details at the bottom of this article.
