Specialty Summer Camps

Registration for Summer 2020 will begin in February! Below please find information from this past summer to give you an idea of our offerings.

These camps focus their program around a certain activity, subject, or event! They tend to be smaller in group size and large in enthusiasm!

In addition to the daily themed activities, children will play games (quiet and active) and create works of art to take home!

Pre-registration is required and is now open!

Scholarships may be available.

During these sessions, campers will learn behind-the-scenes workings of the library, participate in the summer reading program, and take part in weekly events.
