This summer we will be traveling with Ms. Frizzle as The Magic School Bus takes us to exciting places (based on the children’s books). Children will learn about plants, animals, space and much more through hands-on science activities and arts and crafts. Every week will also include outdoor sports, free play time in our large game room, swimming, baking, arts and crafts, games, storytime and more.
Every day children will go outside for fun sports and plenty of fresh air. Our newly renovated air-conditioned facilities guarantee that children will have fun indoors in a cool place on hot summer days.
Campers will enjoy using our large pool 2-3 times a week along with fun outdoor water sports on the grass. The campus has a large shallow pool for younger campers. All staff are in the water during swimming, to make sure non-swimmers are safe and having a good time.
Hot Lunch: the hot lunch program offers a meat, vegetarian, and gluten free option. All food is Kosher, morning snacks are dairy and afternoon lunches are meat. Please note the hot lunch option is at additional cost.
