Summer Camp Dates

Registration for Summer Day Camp is now open and is first come, first served. Registration for the Summer Overnight Camp lottery has closed.

Weeks are divided by age and level of ability so that we can provide the most suitable activities for each camper. You can sign up for your preferred weeks; we will make every effort to accommodate you. Campers can only attend for one week of overnight camp during the summer. Campers may attend more than one week of Day Camp.

All weeks listed here are for overnight camp only. Campers staying for overnight camp arrive on Sunday afternoon and stay until Friday afternoon. Please click "Day Camp Option" in the menu at right for more information about our Day Camp.
