Our camp fills quickly; to ensure your spot and take advantage of our early registration discount, be sure to register early!
Now Featuring EnviroVentures Half-Day Camp Program!
EnviroVentures’ half-day program offers loads of activities and exploration in half the time. For 5 and 6 year old campers, half day camp is just enough to engage and learn but doesn’t overwhelm those little ones who may not be quite ready for a full day of camp. Half-day campers enjoy the same themed activities and science exploration in a shorter camp day. Note: half-day campers do not swim due to time constraints.
