IMPORTANT NOTE FOR CAMPERS ENTERING SECOND GRADE

Campers entering second grade have a choice of camps. They may attend EITHER Creative Sevens, a contained program of the Creative Kids Camp, where their activity schedule is pre-set, OR the Upper Camp program, Creative Campers, where each camper selects his/her own activities, and travels between those classes INDEPENDENTLY five times each day. Please read the descriptions of both offerings to assist you in selecting the better program for your camper entering second grade in fall 2018.

Camp with a Friend

One of the best parts of camp is enjoying it with friends! If your Creative Kid has a friend (or two) who also plans to attend Creative Summer, you can pre-arrange for them to be put in a group together.

To submit a Camp with a Friend Request, please click here. You will need to enter your camper’s name, program (e.g., Creative Fives, etc.) and session(s) s/he will attend, and the name(s) of no more than two friends s/he would like to be with in camp. We will do our best to place them in the same group. Camp With a Friend requests must be submitted by Monday, April 16, 2018.

Creative Kids Location

During our potential renovation project, the Creative Kids program will be housed at The Primary Day School, located directly across River Road from the Holton campus. While we expect there will be some changes to our camp pick-up and drop off procedures, we anticipate the impact on our families to be minimal. We are committed to providing the same high quality programming our Creative Kids families have come to expect. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
