How does your garden grow? Ours has lots of space for learning about planting and tending. Have a green thumb? Want one? Come outside and join the fun!


This year we will be partnering once again with the fabulous Thingamakids! to provide our woodshop instruction. You will work on individual or group projects ranging from very simple to abstract inventions, all while learning basic tools and methods in woodworking. It’s fun, challenging, and inspiring.


Using the well known and highly acclaimed curriculum to teach basic coding principles, your camper will be able to explore the word of coding at their own pace at an age-appropriate level.


YUM! Everything tastes better when you create it! Explore different flavors and recipes in a kid friendly kitchen adventure.

Sports & Games

This is the kids chance to move, grove, and have fun out on the yard. We will explore sports of all types along with other active games such as tag, obstacle courses, and more!

Arts & Crafts

This part of our camp day will include a vast array of kid-tested crafts of every sort. Projects will range from simple paper and pencil crafts to the more involved use of specialized materials such as clay and paint. Crafts will be adjusted as needed to be age appropriate.
