Summer Camps

Spend summer at one of our great camps right in your neighborhood! Take part in active play, science, nature exploration, arts and crafts, games, clubs, and more. Have time to hang out with old and new friends. Weekly themes add to the fun! Summer camps are for kids entering kindergarten to 6th grade.

Summer camps have a tremendous impact on young people. Having a chance to spend quality time with our staff leaves a lasting impact on campers. It allows them time to develop character strengths necessary to their future success. We strive to bring out the best in every child by filling their days with meaningful experiences and fun.
