Have the Best Summer Ever!

Join us for a super fun summer program with lots of cool activities that will help kids make friends, create, discover, and learn! Kids will get to do engaging, hands-on enrichment activities that will help get them ready for when full-time in-person school resumes in the fall, and they’ll also have plenty of opportunities for fun social interactions, making messy art, playing outside, and just getting to be kids, which is incredibly important after a year of social isolation and remote instruction!

During Summer 2021, we’re offering engaging summer programs for children ages 3–12 from 8am-6pm, Monday-Friday. We’re offering 9 weeks of camp, and you can sign up by the week for however many weeks best meets your family’s needs!
