We can't wait to welcome you to camp this summer! Our mission is to provide a safe and enriching summer experience within an environment characterized by intellectual, artistic, physical, social, emotional, and creative growth. We've fulfilled this mission for over two decades by offering strong school readiness programming for rising preschool and kindergarten children, an eclectic mix of over 50 enrichment classes for elementary and middle schoolers, plus tons of fun physical education games and waterpark trips.

Eligibility: Ages 3 through rising 8th grade, open to everyone in the community.
Dates: Two week sessions from June 17-28, July 1-12, and July 15-26.
Times: Preschool/Kindergarten program has 9am-12pm or 9am-3pm option (3 year olds only eligible for half day). 1st-8th campers can choose to participate in morning classes only from 9am-12pm or stay for the Recreation program until 3pm. Early drop off at 7:30am and late pick up until 6pm is available daily.

Benefits of participating:

  • Small class sizes, differentiated instruction, and a healthy mix of group work and self-paced learning.
  • Early childhood education teachers instill love of learning and prepare campers for their preschool or kindergarten school year.
  • 1st-8th grade enrichment includes math, science, computer programming, engineering, performing and visual arts, foreign language, health/nutrition, specialty athletics, strategic games, and skill building.
  • Full day campers visit the waterpark (within walking distance) twice a week!
  • Afternoon programming focuses on building physical fitness, teamwork, and leadership skills through creative outdoor sports and games.
