"Love your campers, be sweet when you're sweaty, and always be as weird as possible!"

-Emma, camp counselor 2014-2015

Each camp is a fun-filled week that begins at 9:00am each day and ends at 4:00pm. The cost of camp is $80, which includes lunch each day.

Early Drop off Program:

The Early Drop Off program allows for children to be dropped off earlier in the morning. You will be able to drop off your child at 8:30 am instead of 9:00am each morning. There is an additional cost of $10 for the week per child enrolled in the Early Drop Off Program.

Late Pick Up Program:

The Late Pick Up Program allows for children to be picked up later after camp ends. You will be able to pick up your child at 4:30pm instead of 4:00pm each day. There is an additional cost of $10 for the week per child enrolled in the Late Pick Up Program.

Junior Camp Counselors

This program is designed for 13-18 year olds to gain camp experience and enjoy camp from a new perspective! They will have the opportunity to participate in camps in a leadership role, and learn valuable life lessons from the full time counselors. This is a great chance for older students to experience responsibility and learn in a controlled environment. Cost for this camp is only $65 and that covers their meals for the week. They can sign up for as many weeks as they'd like, but only six junior counselors can hold a position each week.

What to bring/wear:

  • Water Bottle
  • Tennis Shoes (or any shoes they can run in safely)
  • Comfy clothes (t-shirt and shorts)
  • Personal medical supplies as needed
