Please view our 2020 policies.

Registration for our 2020 season has officially closed.
The camper application and wait lists are now offline.
Thank you for making this a memorable summer!

We give our campers the space to run, time to explore, and the tools to be creative in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. Our campers get to be kids in a way that increases self-confidence, fosters friendships, and develops a love for the outdoors and new activities. Campers are given the flexibility to choose how they would like to spend their day within the limits of a structured environment.   
Our schedule is packed with fun and creative programming that campers will love. Every day, each camper will have the opportunity to:
  • Laugh, stay active, have fun, and, best of all, just be a kid.
  • Swim in the pool, play sports out on the fields, and form a new love of nature on the Playscape.
  • Establish lasting friendships in a co-ed environment.
  • Challenge themselves as they participate in a mud run, color war, or lip sync battle.
  • Find themselves in a community that fosters building confidence, long-lasting friendships, and creating new projects in the woodshop or art room.
  • Learn a new love of theater, dance, and song with our Creative Arts Team in the Clay Center.
