Summer Camp

Announcing “Gap Week” camp, August 21-25; Open spots for camp weeks 5 & 6

Camp has been a blast so far this summer and we know there is a particular need for more at the end of the summer before school begins when camp options are limited. So for the first time we are offering a “Gap Week” camp from August 21-25, for kids ages 5-9. Hours are 8:30am – 3:30pm. Each day will be a mix of structured and free play with games, snacks, and crafts. Space is limited, so please sign up now if you are interested. A few spots are open for our weeks 5 & 6 camp (July 24-28 & July 31-Aug 4). Click the link below to register for any of our remaining camp weeks.

$375/week per child; $20 multi-week OR sibling discount available. CARE4KIDS accepted. Child MUST be 5 years of age by start date.
