Specialty Summer Camps
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 REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Scholarships may be available.
