Due to the current state of unpredictability and along with CDC and recommendations, we have decided to switch our June camps over to strictly virtual offerings. We love summer camps and the magic that comes along with it. We recognize the need to provide engaging activities for your children to experience in the summer. Now, more than ever, it’s important to provide experiences for your kids to look forward to. Over the last few months we have brainstormed, tested, and designed virtual summer camps that we believe your family will love.

As of May 1, 2020, we are not cancelling any camps in July and August. We remain cautiously hopeful that we may be able to run these camps in a limited capacity. If this occurs, camps will be limited in size and various measures will be taken to protect our students and staff. If you are currently enrolled in a July or August camp, we will be reaching out to you later in May with updates. We will make final decision on the status of July camps by the end of May. 

Join us for our FUN, high-quality, engaging, and memorable summer camps open to new & returning K-12 students. This will be our ninth year offering our unique and special summer camps! We are thrilled to offer new camps, levels, and expand our locations. To provide the best learning environment, have new camp divisions.
