SUMMER CAMP

Our summer camps are developed with your family in mind. Our camps are aimed at providing your family with excellent summer programming at an affordable rate. Our camps are co-ed and are offered for children grades 1 to 6. On each day your child can expect a morning of sports, a healthy snack, a team talk, and an afternoon that may include off site trips and camp activities. Each week will end with your child experiencing an offsite trip for the entire day. We provide a 6 to 1 camper to staff ratio and our leaders are trained to provide your child a fun and safe experience.

Registration opens February 1 @ 10AM.
