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 and lunch is provided as an option for our families at no additional cost. Please refer to our weekly menus for what is available daily. In collaboration both with USDA and local non-profits qualifying summer camps receive a free breakfast and/or lunch. Summer meals are provided as an enhancement of camp not a part of camp. If you choose to bring your own lunch or snack 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.
