2018 Summer Camp

Full Summer
The full summer option allows campers to attend camp any day during the full eight weeks of camp.

Full Summer with Lunch
Add the lunch option and never worry about packing a lunch!  Delicious lunches from local businesses will be provided Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

Weekly Camp
Weekly camp registration is available for any of the eight weeks of summer.

Pre - registered daily rate
Campers must register the prior week for any days they will attend camp.  (3, 5, 10, and 20 day packages available)

Half Day (Weekly only) - (Half day campers do not eat lunch at camp)
Morning session: 8:00am - 12:00pm
Afternoon session: 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Extended Day Until 6:00 pm - $10 per day
Allows for pickup until 6pm daily

Lunch - $5 per day
For your convenience we offer lunch Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for $5, which includes the daily meal and a drink.  On Thursdays, campers can walk to town with Counselors in small groups for lunch and must bring their OWN money to purchase their lunch.  Options include Planet Pizza, Hot Dog Cart, Village Deli, Subway and Steve’s Bagels with a stop at Deborah Ann’s for dessert.

*All of our summer camp options require advanced registration by midnight of the Thursday before the following week.

In Addition

Extended Day
The extended day option is intended for families who simply cannot get here by 5pm.  Advance registration is required.  This time period will serve as an additional camp activity period between 5 and 6:00pm, which may include activities in the Gym, Pool or Games Room.

Late Pickup
Families who do not register for the extended day, but who pick up their children after 5pm, will be assessed a $25 late pickup charge that must be paid prior to their child’s next day of camp. This holds true for extended day families who do not pick up by 6pm. If you are running late, a phone call is appreciated. We appreciate your willingness to respect the staff’s personal time and do what you must, to get here on time. Please allow yourself enough time, and plan accordingly for traffic issues. 

Lunch
We offer an option to include lunch  four days each week for $5.00 per day, and the fifth day we’ll be going into town for lunch (Thursdays.) Lunch includes the daily meal and a drink. Please reach out to us if you have concerns. We will offer a separate lunch table for those campers with peanut allergies, and work with families to ensure the safety of all campers as it relates to food allergies.
