Campers will let their creativity run wild with our arts and crafts specialist leading the way! The opportunity to create with different mediums will surely spark unique expression. Each day there will be a new activity that the campers won’t be able to wait to get their hands on!

Our very own Mr. Jeff (Klemm) will be leading the camp in song. Experiencing song writing, sing alongs and various instrumental mediums will keep our campers rocking out all summer long!

Campers will spend the week with our sport specialist focusing on different sports and sports-related activities each day. Campers will focus on skill-building, sportsmanship and teamwork while learning the rules and strategies of many different sports. Fridays are match days! Let the games begin!

Whether it’s swim lessons, water sports or free swim, this daily dose of fun will keep all of the campers feeling cool and energized! Our exceptional team of lifeguards and certified coaches will help make this activity safe and fun!

Please note, if you are uncomfortable with sending your child to camp with these precautions in place, please do not enroll at this time. These precautions are in place to provide every effort to keep each child and family safe: however, this does not provide any guarantee of any kind.

Financial aid applications are due June 24th. Please email applications to our Youth Program Director, Lyndsey Kirk
