2021 Camps Update

posted 2/3/2021

At this time, we are not planning to hold our typical summer camp sessions, but we will re-assess later this spring. We are hoping to reopen in early summer, but that decision will be driven by both public health metrics and our construction timeline for our new outdoor space, which will temporarily affect our use of the building.

If you are on our e-newsletter list, you will receive automatic updates about our summer plans. Use this link to sign up for our e-newsletter.

We know it is challenging for families to make summer plans with so many programs in flux, and we are sorry we don’t have more concrete information about our summer programming at this time. Please bear with us; we look forward to welcoming everyone back this summer!

Sold out? Join the waitlist!

Our camps are popular and many sell out quickly. However, families’ plans change between now and the summer so we frequently have spots open up. We keep a waitlist for each camp and we make an effort to fill every spot as it becomes available.
