We provide exciting new activities that are based around themed weeks and features busy days full of fun camp activities and many opportunities to explore, discover, create, and connect. Campers are grouped by age and our days are filled with hands-on activities that are enjoyable and challenging. Campers will gain self-esteem and self-confidence, learn new experiences, foster lasting friendships, and create new memories that will last a lifetime.

Morning Breakfast and Afternoon Snack-We provide a healthy snack for all campers at these times.

Arts and Crafts-Arts and crafts allow us to exercise our creativity along with our fine motor skills: creating murals and projects to decorate and use at our camp and cool projects to bring home and enjoy. Cooking projects are also enjoyed.

Physical Education-During PE, we play cooperative games while staying active and learning how to keep ourselves healthy while having fun. We also play outside every day. Please dress your child accordingly.

Science and Nature Studies-We offer engaging, hands-on science activities throughout the week. Our daily schedule allows for plenty of organized activities and adventures that are shaped by wonder, creativity, community, and most of all fun!


Our days will be filled with fun and sometimes messy activities so be sure to come dressed appropriately for an active and exciting day.
