Summer Camp

Although times are changing, there are some things that never change at camp… like the friendships we cherish and the feeling of belonging! Our ten weeks of summer will be a time to have fun, engage with other children and make lasting memories.

Camp starts Monday, June 7 and will end Friday, August 13. More information is available below for each camp including registration dates, fees and more.

Full-Day Camp

Fun Factory and Teen Scene

Fun Factory is our camp for ages 3-10 held at the YMCA.

Our camp is specialized to stimulate the spirit, mind and body with fun academic activities to help keep the camper’s brain focused over the long summer break to prevent learning loss. We will also engage the kids in various energizing, independent physical activities (Yoga, Zumba, Nature Walks etc.). Children will maintain a 6 feet social distance at all times and wear masks when in group setting. Children must WEAR CLOSED-TOE SHOES daily due to outdoor/physical activities. Parents must provide lunch for their children.
