Our recreation camps are jam-packed with a variety of opportunities intended to ignite potential and create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Campers will participate in weekly themes, daily outdoor time, arts and crafts, non-competitive sports, and supervised games and activities. Educational presentations and special guest visits that focus on life-skills development allow all campers to accomplish new things and acquire new skills. Both full-day and half-day options are available for your camper to discover new interests, make new friends, be active, and experience the joys of summer camp!
