Please read the descriptions of both offerings to assist you in selecting the better program for your camper entering second grade in fall 2020.

You will need to enter your camper’s name, program (e.g., Creative Fives, etc.), 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.

"My daughter in Busy Bees [Creative Fours] had the BEST time. She didn't know anyone at camp but quickly made friends and was so excited to return to camp each day."

"Supportive and fun experience for my rising kindergartener. Helped him build and demonstrate confidence with being in a new environment with new people— just what we needed in preparation for the fall!"
