2024 Summer
Camps
Register Now for 2024 Summer Camp!!

This Summer…

Your children have a chance to get a little messy, make new friends, learn a little more about themselves & build their self-esteem. Our summer camps give children the opportunity to jump out of their comfort zones and into exciting, healthy, and safe new worlds to discover and explore!

Our campers spend time every day in the great outdoors, are part of a team & have a sense of belonging. Most importantly, they have a chance to be just kids, getting the most out of summer!

NEW! Even more camps-by-the-week options to fit into your busy summer plans.  Check out our NEW golf & nature camps!  We also have a great line up of gymnastics, tennis, sports, design, culinary, art, dance, and theatre camps!
