Week 1: Art Adventurers (June 15-19)

This is the week creativity comes alive! Leave the pretty dresses and sport coats at home, and let’s get messy! We’ll explore art that explodes with color, paint with our feet, make masterpiece self-portraits, and more. Our art camp includes more variety than you can imagine. We will enjoy processed-based projects where the kids explore unusual methods and mediums, as well as projects where they’ll learn how to follow a step by step plan (with plenty of individuality of course!). They’ll create tons of projects to take home, as well as large collaborative projects, developing teamwork and communication skills.

Week 2: Ooey Gooey Science Fun (June 22-26)


Your child is sure to have an explosive time as we explore things that pop, hop and fly! Leave the fancy clothes at home; this camp will explore hands-on science projects and experiments, including Obleck, slime, erupting volcanoes, and all the exciting chemical reactions your budding mad scientist could possibly want! This interactive camp is sure to delight as well as teach. From artistic science techniques to hands-on activities, this week is not to be missed! 

Week 3: Under the Sea (June 29-July 2) (4-day week) 

Swim on over for this magical journey into the deep. Deep fun that is! Campers can expect tons of water play, engaging art, underwater stories, splashy science, exciting crafts, and so much more! It’ll be a cool week of fun while learning about marine ecosystems, sea animals, plants, tides, and fish. You won’t want to miss this deep blue adventure that will last the whole week long.

Week 4: Where the Wild Things Are (July 6-10)

“There should be a place where only the things you want to happen, happen” and now there is!  Activities abound in this fun week full of storytelling, creative drama, art, foil crowns, and fun. Your children will spend the week expanding their imaginations, and they’ll learn to channel their creativity to create their own fantasy lands to sail to over a year and through a day. They’ll learn how to tell stories in different mediums, such as visually, audibly, and through music and feeling. Let the wild rumpus begin! 

Week 5: Get Cooking! in this Savory, Sweet and Oh So Neat Week (July 13-17)


This week we extend an invitation to young, aspiring chefs in this fun-filled cooking camp. We’ll learn about measuring, healthy eating, recipes, and teamwork! Perfect for picky eaters and food lovers alike, we can accommodate vegan and most other specific diets, as well as work around food allergies. Awesome activities include exploring foods from other areas and cultures, taste testing, and make delicious (and healthy) meals and snacks, tempting to even the pickiest eaters!

Week 6: Full STEAM ahead! Inventors Workshop (July 20-24)

Childhood curiosity, experimentation, and imagination can develop one’s play instinct, build on math concepts, squash fears, boost intelligence, develop empathy, and so much more. In this science-based week, children will tinker and play, have the opportunity to explore and have tons of fun, all the while exercising their imagination! They’ll cover basics in coding, build robots, and work together to find creative solutions to fun problems. This week, boxes are for making space ships, not for thinking!

Week 7: Pirate Week! Join Jake and the Never Land Pirates (July 27-31)

Ahoy thar, matey! With pirate names and treasure maps, this week be burstin’ with fun times for all! We be learnin’ pirate shanties, makin’ pirate crafts, and playin’ tons of pirate games! We’ll be learnin’ about real-life pirates and how they lived on the open sea. From buildin’ ships to evadin’ Captain Hook, that scurvy dog, to adventures sure to excite every laddie and lass, this week is not to be missed!

Week 8: Music Madness! (August 3-7)

Music is so much more than a form of art and self-expression; studies show that music in early education helps lay a foundation for language development, strong memory, coordination, math skills, and self-confidence! During this camp, the kids will explore a variety of instruments and learn new songs. They’ll learn how to follow and create rhythms and beats, from singalongs to jazz, nursery classics to country, dance music to international hits, and even end the week with a sweet little performance!

Week 9: Harry Potter and Summer of Fun (August 10-14)

Join us as we immerse a new class in the fantastical world of Harry Potter! Make your own wand, some drool slime to rival Hagrid’s dog, Fluffy, a Monster Book of Monsters, and a variety of potions. We’ll make magical treats and try butterbeer. We’ll have fun activities like Quidditch, house games and scavenger hunts, boosting our teamwork skills and creative adventures. And of course, what Harry Potter week would be complete without a visit from a real magician?

Our camp is from 8:30am-5:30pm Monday through Friday (early pick-up okay)
