Summer Day Camp  
Campers ages 4-12 participate in groups by age in activities that include sports, arts & crafts, outdoor games, literacy, drama, music, dress up days, beach trips, water activities, special events, and within a caring and safe environment!  Camps run 8am - 3pm and are open to residents and non-residents.

Most Camp field trips have an additional fee (but beach trips are free!) in addition to the price of camp and campers must be registered for the appropriate week and site of summer camp to register for camp trips. Remember to apply sunscreen at home and pack spray sunscreen, lunch, snack, and beverage if needed. For beach or water-related trips, include a swim suit, towel and change of clothes.
