We’ll go on one field trip each week beginning in July, and that is also covered in the cost. Register today and pay the once-a-summer $30 deposit to reserve your child’s spot. Open for young people in grade PK-5. Session days are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. All-day camps are $85 per week per child or $19 per day per child, with rates varying for shorter camp weeks.
