Every summer we offer new experiences and create day camp activities for hundreds of youth. From traditional summer camps that encourage kids to explore new adventures, to preschool camps where campers participate in themed weeks and hands-on learning, we provide kids and youth with opportunity to learn, thrive, grow and of course have fun!  

Two healthy snacks are provided for our campers at no additional cost at all camp locations. Please refer to our weekly camp snack menu for a list of snacks. Please ensure your child has a sack lunch daily (refrigeration is not available). Please note that we do not allow any foods that contain or that are processed in plants with tree or peanuts at any of our camp sites.
