Many of our camp partners offer, an optional, extended AM and PM program so that you can drop off and pick up your camper at a convenient time for you.

Weather permitting, everyday our campers will spend time outdoors and play games such as capture the flag, kickball, ‘Nurf War’, and compete in water fights.
Lunch and Free Breaks (2 periods)
We will take a few breaks during the camp day – during this free time campers can have a snack and/or play in a video or board game tournament.
