Middle Camp (Grades 1 – 2)

Ages: Children entering grades 1 and 2 in September 2024
Hours: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

More activities plus greater choice equals tremendous fun. With over 25 different activities, your first or second grader will dive into our Middle Camp with joyful excitement. This full day program is a perfect blend of structure and flexibility, giving your child the “big-kid” thrill of choosing their activities between two options. One thing your child will find equally thrilling—talking about it non-stop will be your first clue—is meeting new friends. We purposely keep our counselor-to-camper ratio small at 1:7, to help foster a connected community where social skills are developed and everyone feels a sense of belonging.

Whether it’s swimming a lap, scoring a goal or taking a bow, our counselors guide and support campers as they discover new interests, develop talents and meet challenges with confidence and enthusiasm.
