Traditional Camp (Ages 5-12)

Traditional camp is designed for a wide variety of conventional interests that include arts & crafts, group games, nature exploration, swimming, field trips, and more. Most camp activities are held outdoors with indoor activities provided based on the day and theme. Day campers are divided into groups by the grade level they are entering in the fall.

Registrations must be completed by the Wednesday prior to the camp start date for the week. Registrations made after this date will acquire a $10 late fee.

Once an application is received, the Camp Director will contact the applicant and schedule a time for the interview and screening to finalize the selection process. *Please note that not everyone interviewed will be selected for the program* Space is limited.
