Under The Sea
What better way to start off summer than with a week at the “beach”?! Anyone for a game of sharks and minnows? Want to make a Soctopus? Mermaids, shells, fish, whales and did we mention SHARKS abound as we explore life under the sea through nature and craft projects, storytelling and games.
Say "Yes" To The Mess
This is the quintessential arts and crafts camp - a literal hodgepodge of activities and mediums that include crayons, pottery, cloth, clay, duct tape... the sky is the limit. We’ll use all the good crafty verbs guaranteed to inspire: blending, carving, molding, sculpting, pasting, painting... fun!

Exploring the World Around Us
Back by popular demand! We’ll explore outer space together, create rockets, play games, learn about the stars and planets ~ all through hands-on activities, songs, and play.
Under the Big Top
The Circus is coming to town! We will be following this theme all week with fun costumes, ring toss, balloon animals, popcorn and more! Letting your child run away to join the circus has never been so fun and educational. Let the show begin!
