General Information


As our 2020 camp season begins to wind down, we want to thank all our campers and parents that participated this season. With the State and City mandates on operating camp during the COVID19 pandemic, our camp program ran as safely and smoothly as possible, with the cooperation of all parents, campers and staff! 

We are working hard to offer new programs to assist with the uncertainity of the school year and virtual learning. Please check out our Before and After School page, or follow us on social media to receive updates on program offerings coming soon.

Have a great school year and we hope to see everyone back next summer!
