These exciting all day camps are designed to be a unique and innovative approach to educational and recreational opportunities for youth during the summer months that will not only educate youth on a variety of positive socially appropriate leisure pursuits, but also provide a high level of supervision for fun summer activities. Our excellent staff includes certified school teachers and college students who participate in pre-employment background checks and a well-rounded leadership training program.
