Camps

Our camps are a well balanced combination of teacher led art making activities and free play time and choice time. All surrounding the theme for the week. We also read stories and visit the library on Fridays. 

We are very thoughtful with the age limits for our camps and work hard to create projects that are age appropriate. Please respect our age restrictions. 

We go for walks, do scavenger hunts in the neighbohood and have our lunch outside picnic style. Our camps are limited to 16 kids per week.

If your child is on the spectrum or has a learning challenge, it would be helpful to us if you let us know before camp begins.
