Our summer program, Camp Prep, is a classic day camp that includes theme-based weeks, canteen, and Friday Skits. It is well-planned, well-managed, and sure to enrich campers each week. In addition to the traditional day camp activities, each Monday campers have the opportunity to select two elective blocks that they will participate in each afternoon for the remainder of the week. Here are just a few of the elective choices that will have the option of: American Girl Doll, Lego Exploration, Robotics, specialized sports, Writer’s Workshop, or Specialized Art activities. Camp Prep provides an environment that is developmentally appropriate and most importantly, fun! Hear directly from our co-coordinator, Ms. McKeon by watching the video below.
Camp Prep begins June 13th and runs through the week of August 8th. Please note, there is no camp the week of July 4th. The camp day is from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The weekly cost is $325 and includes extended hours (7:30 a.m.- 6 p.m.), off-campus trips, plus Friday pizza lunch!
