Kids Summer Camp

Summer Camps


We are delighted to offer our popular summer camp program again this year with our weekly day camps for kids ages 6-13 and our specialty camps for 10-16-year-olds.

Day camps are geared to give all children the opportunity to grow and explore the world within a safe and welcoming environment. They will build friendships, use their imagination, and move their bodies through a variety of activities led by enthusiastic, welcoming staff and counselors. The day will start with a central drop off and morning meet-and-greet, then move into different structured activities including science exploration, cooking classes, art workshops, and outdoor activities and games. Plus, each day, campers will work on their summer reading and math packs from their respective schools (that’s for the parents!).

Specialty Camps are geared toward engaging kids in specific areas of interest.

Children will have time to interact with friends their own ages while growing in self-awareness and confidence and having great fun in the process! I hope that you allow your children to join us for the summer or maybe just for a few weeks, either way we think you will be really happy that you did and so will your children!
