• This year we are excited to offer our same great summer camp program, but with a variety of new weekly themes and activities! Our camp will consist of campers 5-12 years of age, split up in multiple groups, to offer as much age-appropriate programming as possible throughout the day. But all campers will experience games, sports, hands-on learning, craft activities, on-campus field trips, and much more!


    Summer 2020

    A $50 non-refundable, non-transferrable deposit (per child, per week) is needed in order to hold the camper’s spot for each requested week. The remaining camp total is due each Monday prior to the requested camp week. Please note that registration for all camps closes one week in advance to the camp, or once our camper capacity is reached.
