Summer Camps

  • Dates: June, July* and August
    • Tuesday (sweet)
    • Wednesday (savory)
    • Thursday (sugar)

  • Surprise activity at the end of each camp
  • Includes snacks (All campers should bring a thermos or water bottle for hydration)

Note that the total number of menu items may change week-to-week based on the needs of a given class. In addition, there are some circumstances that may alter the structure of a camp (e.g., due to summer heat, we may choose to send a camper home with an item on the day-of so that it's kept fresh). Our aim is to always provide an enriching and safe experience for all campers.
