Adventure Camp is back again! And we're taking on our favorite destinations including Driven Raceway, Six Flags, Stinson Beach, and Paintball Jungle, for the best summer yet!

Wednesdays are a home-base day for some on-site camp fun and to provide a mid-week break from traveling. Scavenger hunts, water fights, relay races, local hiking outings, massive slip and slides and mini olympic tournaments will keep the fun going. Pizza lunch is included on these home-base Wednesdays!

On travel days (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday) campers will divide into small groups for our fun-filled days based on their age and interests. Whether your child is 8 or 15 years old, this is a great place to meet friends and enjoy adventures which take them to all the places they dream of going.

**Permission slips: some trips require an additional permission slip, they can all be found on the Info page of our website. Completed forms must be returned to our office BEFORE the first day of camp.**

Wear sunscreen. Bring a water bottle, snack and lunch (when lunch is not included, see calendar).

Trips are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.

Please note: Adventure Camp has changed into a four day camp, Monday-Thursday**.
**If your camper would like to attend a camp on Friday from 9am-1pm, please contact our office.

Art with Casey Summer Camp will focus on a variety of different mediums: from collage to charcoal and from watercolor to colored pencils we will experiment explore and learn shading, painting, perspective, and sketching.
When we aren’t creating unique pieces of art we will be drawing inspiration from nature. Foraging for twigs, leaves and supplies from the great outdoors that we can incorporate into our projects.
We will also have fun doing warm-up games like Simon says draw, collaboration imagination projects, create your own superhero, monsters, animals, abstract works and more. Perfect for all ability levels with an emphasis on learning and having fun, this summer course will be a great addition to your child’s summer education. Look forward to seeing you there!

Holly's Hoppin' Summer Camp


Instructor: Holly Salamun
1 weeks
This is a mixed-age camp available for all children. These super fun summer days will have a great mix of awesome activities in small groups as well as cool choice time options (like riding a bike or roller skates!) This will be an inspiring environment where children have the opportunity to explore, create, discover and nurture their unique attributes. Children will fill their leisurely and creative days with:
-Nature walks and outdoor adventuring
-Games, sports, yoga and free play in the gym
-Music: singing and dancing
-Cooking/baking
-Arts and crafts and creative experiments
-Water play!

This is a family oriented camp, with the older children acting as mentors for the younger, with developmental benefits for both. We believe the multi-age classroom provides a strong foundation and a richer and a well-rounded educational experience. The younger campers will have the opportunity to learn from and look up to the older campers, who will intuitively lead and influence the younger. It is a wonderful camp experience for all ages!

*Wear sunscreen, bring a snack, hearty lunch, and water bottle each day.
Drop-in is \$100/day.
