Summer Camp Program
Our summer program for grades K-5 includes a variety of daily activities at the Club for each age group, such as gym games, arts & crafts, walking trips to the park, outside play, learning activities, a daily reading time, and more. Lunch will be served at no cost to members every day at noon. For most of the day, members are broken up by age (grades K-1; grades 2-3; grades 4-5) and each group rotates through the Club areas throughout the day.
Field Trips are offered 3-4 times per week and camp participants will participate in all field trips corresponding to their grade. Because we serve a variety of ages, staff make every effort to plan a wide array of age-appropriate field trips. The summer field trip and activity schedules are subject to change.
We also offer activities for members in grades 6-12. These teen members can spend time in the teen center, gym and gamesroom, among other activities. We offer several field trips per week to our teen members, which are optional and fee-for-service.
