Our camp is a safe and fun environment where campers can create, explore, learn, and make new friends!  Each of the Day Camps are five days long, and  run Monday through Friday. We have morning and afternoon sessions and Before and After Play Care! Our camps are run by our mature, knowledgeable and entertaining staff.

Campers are divided into dinosaur themed teams with a camp counselor to lead each team through the following designated learning stations:

  • DISCOVER—Campers get a chance each day to  discover something new in the field of science through a hands–on teaching session.

  • SNACK— Campers get a boost of energy while using their food as a learning tool.

  • CREATE—Campers create something memorable that goes along with the themed learning to take home.

  • PLAY— Campers get to enjoy the great outdoors while having fun in the park and making friends.
