Namaste, Nature and Creativity Pre-k to Grade 1 Children will explore the school campus and surrounding conservation land through movement, art, and yoga.

Summer Sports Grades 1 to 8 Summer Sports offers general sports experiences to meet the needs of campers who are multi-sport athletes.

We will play traditional sports like soccer, basketball, and tennis while mixing in other fun activities and games to keep things fresh. There will be something for every athlete, from aspiring basketball stars to capture the flag aficionados. Campers will get a free swim period each day. $700
