Summer Camp & Summer School
Camp starts at 9am and formal camp activities end at 4pm daily, however, at no additional charge, you may drop off your camper between 8:00-9:00am and pickup from 4:00-5:30pm, fully supervised by our staff.
Each camp is one week in length. Each week there is a new content, including new drama plays and trips. So that campers who register for more than one week will have new and challenging experiences in each of the camp weeks.
The goals of the summer program
Our goal is to provide a summer program that is rewarding, enriching and challenging; that is focused on encouraging participation, and that helps kids develop and try out new skills and capabilities. The program is aimed at growth in self-confidence and self-esteem. It teaches kids to work creatively, individually as well as in groups. At the same time, it provides a place and environment where kids can have fun.
What to bring
Campers should bring the following items for full day sessions:
· packed lunch (no nut/peanut products)
· running shoes
· swimsuit & towel (if swimming)
Outdoor activities: non-competitive games and sports contribute toward getting creative energies flowing as well as developing social cohesion and cooperative skills.

Our Camp Staff
All of our staff have college / university background; the camper-staff ratio is approximately 7:1 or 8:1, ensuring that each camper has a great deal of individual attention and instruction during the week.
Campers bring their own lunches along with them. Parents should take into account that refrigerators and microwaves will be available. Our policy is that the camp is a peanut-free environment; parents should be aware of this in preparing lunches.
