Our LOWER CAMP serves children who are 6, 7, or 8 years old. These campers rotate through programming activities designed to increase their social competency and scaffold learning across content areas.  Their schedule provides for a developmentally appropriate balance of structured activities, rest, and play. 

Our UPPER CAMP serves children who are 9, 10, or 11 years old. These campers are given a menu of programming choices from which to choose their activities. The administration works to create a schedule that balances individual camper interests with a well-rounded experience that maximizes opportunity for these children to develop new skills. 

Weekly activities for campers in both Lower and Upper Camp include:

  • Trips to area farms, nature center, state parks, beaches and more
  • All Camp Field Trip on Thursdays
  • Swim lessons on Friday mornings
  • Tennis Lessons (Older campers) Wednesday afternoon
