“Expand your Mind this Summer”

Our Summer Enrichment Program is designed to provide children with the opportunity to explore a wide range of activities
in a safe and caring environment. Campers enroll in a half day program (concentration) of an activity of their choosing.
Small groups of 10 to 12 students are created based on age and skill level. The average child/adult ratio is 6:1,
allowing our campers to benefit from a family-like atmosphere and personal attention from our faculty.
