With more options to explore, including Day Camps, Academic Camps, Specialty Camps, and Sports Camps, you can customize a one-of-a-kind experience that makes your child shine!

Day Camps
Each week, students in Kindergarten through Grade 5 jump into action as they explore science and nature, discover creative and performing arts, participate in sports and games, and so much more. Our specialty activity blocks give campers variety throughout each camp day.

Academic Camps
Looking for a more robust academic camp experience? Enhance your child's love of learning while focusing on a specific subject. From math and robotics to literature and creative writing, we have something for every student as they work independently and in small groups, and apply real-life experiences to lessons learned in the classroom.

Specialty Camps
Add even more fun with our specialty camps that are packed with hands-on activities and experiences for campers to discover new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) skills and talents. Whatever your child's interests are, we have activities for them to explore!

Sports Camps
Our rigorous sports camp promotes skill building and teamwork, exposes children to new activities, and helps establish healthy exercise habits. We bring sports specialists from around the area to help each camper improve, practice, and play their favorite sport or learn a new one!

[email protected] offers children ample opportunities to explore, discover, make new friends and learn new skills. It all starts with our outstanding camp counselors, whose talent, creativity, and leadership set the stage for this unforgettable experience.
