It’s Not Too Late! Sign Up For One Of Our Specialty Camps!

During our Specialty Camps, kids have the opportunity to develop a greater passion for something they already love, or to learn something new! These camps are a week-long experience for campers focusing on activities in one specific area. Kids will spend about 2 hours a day in their specialized activity while the remainder of the day is spent enjoying traditional camp activities.

This summer, we have spots open in the following camps:

  • Fairy Tale Camp (July 22-26) Grade Levels: 1-3 – Campers let their imaginations soar in this magical fairy tale-themed arts and crafts camp!
