Day Camp (Ages 4-13)

BEST SUMMER EVER

Camp is a home away from home where kids laugh, learn, explore, and grow in the outdoors, while creating memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Our campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork, and leadership in a wide range of physically active programs. Centered in an outdoor environment, campers learn to appreciate and embrace nature. Our Summer Day Camp builds an interest in community with experiences in local and global cultures where campers gain an appreciation for others different from themselves. Each week we feature different and exciting camps that focus on fostering friendship, achievement, and belonging.
