Camp is for ages 6-12 yrs.

Our Mission is to provide a rich environment for kids to learn, grow, and form bonds within their community.
Enroll your camper today for summer fun outdoors! Some of our weekly sessions are themed, meaning we will focus on sports (for example) while still having time devoted to interaction with our animals, free time swimming, fishing, boating and more.

Camp sessions run weekly Monday - Friday from 9-3 pm.
Max 30 - 35 campers per week.
There are no additional discounts while our early bird special is running

Necessary Considerations

• Campers must must pack a lunch, snack, and waterbottle.

• Regarding peanuts and tree-nuts, we are not a nut free camp. However, we are a nut aware camp that will take special precautions for children with nut allergies.

• This camp is technology free. Counselors will not be using phones either! Counselors will be taking photos of campers each day and providing access to these photos at the end of each week.

• All children will need to pass a swim test to swim. This will consist of jumping into the deep end, swimming a full lap of the pool, and treading water for one minute directly after the full lap. Please tell your children this is to access their swimming abilities for their safety.

• Coronavirus concerns are a top priority. Children will be socially distanced when possible, will be sanitizing hands multiple times a day, and mask usage will be required and constantly supervised.
