Please note the following:

First games will be 9/28.

Cost of the program is a league price and therefore cannot be pro-rated for missing practices/games.

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.
