Education and fun rolled into one! Designed for first-time campers in the primary grades looking to participate in a diverse array of educational activities. Summer fun activities will be infused with creative academics in the areas of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Campers will also take part in music, art and drama, along with field trips throughout the week in order to support the academic areas covered in camp. Campers will receive swim lessons and enjoy recreational swimming each week. On the last Friday of each two-week session, campers will showcase for parents what they have learned and created during their camp experience!
