Welcome to Summer Camp!

Get ready to learn, play, create, and go places. We are very excited to introduce you to our weekly summer day camp programs. Our primary goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for all our participants. Together we unplug, play, swim, keep active, make friends, and expand our abilities; we become more confident, resilient, and independent!

Note: This page contains information on the day-to-day operations of camp. For new safety precautions and COVID-19 information, please see our safety page.
