  • Our program consists of a variety of activities including, but not limited to, Swimming, Martial Arts, Arts & Crafts, Group Games, Team Building, Super Science, Community Service Projects, Special Events and depending on your facility, Golf and/or Tennis Instruction.
  • Wednesdays are always WaCkY! Every Wednesday will be a theme day. Past themes have included Sherlock Holmes Day, Pajama Party, Wild Wild West and many more. We encourage our staff and campers to dress up in costume and really get into it!
  • Attending a summer camp can strongly impact a child’s life and your role as a staff member is integral to making this happen in a meaningful way. You will be there to help our campers laugh, gain self-confidence, build new friendships, try new things and support them in everything they do.
