We invite you to participate in our summer camps. We offer a variety of camps including sports camps, art camp, cooking camp, drama camp, and writing camps. Please click on the tabs below for more information about each camp, age requirements, registration forms or online registration. We will post information and registration forms as they become available. A list of dates and times of the camps is listed below. We tried to pair some of our camps like our Ceramics and 6th-8th grade Writing Camp, our Culinary Kids and 3rd-5th grade Writing Camp, and our Drama Camp and Volleyball Camp so if your students wants to be here all day, they can. Just have them bring their lunch and we will have an area where they can eat and supervision between camp times.
