Summer Camp Calendar of Special Events & Schedule

We offer flexible scheduling to meet the needs of our families.  You may register your camper for one day, the entire summer, or anything in between. No week-long commitments are necessary (but recommended to get the best camp experience). Campers may add days to their contract with 24 hour notice, provided there is open space available.


2018 Calendar of Special Events (Please note the calendar is tentative and therefore subject to change). 


Summer day camps are full of adventure and activities that entertain children and keep them moving!  Incorporating themes into summer camp activities allows campers to get out of their everyday routines and show their creative sides.

2018 Summer Camp Themes:


June 25 - June 29: A Camping We Will Go

What better way to welcome summer than with a fun-filled camping adventure?!  We'll enjoy a week of new beginnings, discoveries, and creativity while investigting the natural world around us -- bugs, birds, animal tracks and habitats; plants, leaves and trees; and end the week in the great outdoors hiking nature trails and putting our newly learned skills to the test.  Throw in some traditional camp songs, stories, and a s'mores bash around the campfire, this is sure to be a week your camper will never forget!

July 2 - July 6 (Closed July 4th): All American: Stars & Stripes

"Oh say can you see"....From everything red, white, and blue, to our hometown heroes, we will enjoy a week full of 4th of July activities celebrating America's favorite past times.

July 9 - July 13: Mad Scientist

We're on a mission to inspire the next generation of scientists!  Intrigued by messy fun and cracy concoctions? Or maybe you prefer rocket science and robotics?  Do you aspire to be a chemist? A biologist? A geologist? Or how about a blast into the past and transform into a paleontologist? We'll do all that and more this week!

July 16 - July 20: Classic Summertime

Friends, fun, and sun! What more could you be looking for in a summer camp?  Let's enjoy our favorite summertime activities with a trip to the county fair, and playing classic games like kickball, four square, hopscotch, lawn games, relay races, water play, and an outdoor picnic to end the week. Join us this week for good old fashioned fun in the sun!

July 23 - July 27: Storybook Summer

Dragons, fairies, and superheroes, oh my!  Join us for a week long celebration of reading.  Each day we will discover a beloved children's book.  Activities will be designed around the themes of some of the authors' most adored books, paired with engaging crafts, games, sensory play, and science experiments.

July 30 - August 3: Adventureland

We'll jump into discovery this week and create our own adventures!  Campers will embark on nature adventures, journey to the moon and back, set sail on a pirate themed voyage, submerge under the sea, and travel back to Medieval times.

August 6 - August 10: Imaginarium

It's time to use our imaginations as we work together to design original works of art, unique inventions, and extraordinary games.  Campers will explore the wonderful world of color by letting their creativity run wild, and investigate the world of simple machines to become a junior engineer.  There's no limit to what campers will create this week!

August 12 - August 17: Bon Voyage Summer

Summer is almost over and school will be starting soon, but that doesn't mean we can't go out with one last big HOORAH!  Let's celebrate by playing our favorite games, reliving our best memories and send a tip of the ol' cap to the best summer ever!
