How do you handle the summer heat?

This is the number one question from new parents. We have been running summer camps since 1998. We completely understand the need to keep campers hydrated and cool during the summer months. We love our facilities. They each have an awesome indoor gym, classrooms and cafeteria. The kids have a great time playing sports and games inside! If a sport is outside, ex. Archery, the staff is very aware of the camper needs. The campers have fun playing inside and outside throughout the day.

What age are the campers?

Kids Camp: Ages 4.5 – 12. Campers must turn 5 by December 31st, 2018 to attend camp.

Leadership Camp: Ages 13 – 16.

How do I request a friend to be in my child’s group?

We work hard to keep our group ratios consistent. Please make sure all friend requests are sent to the office prior to the Wednesday before the camp week you want the request. If the children vary in age they may be moved to the younger age group. This is common with sibling requests.

**In order for us to match requests, the friend’s name must match exactly the way the friend registered. For example: Zachary Smith must be Zachary, not Zach.

  • When you register there will be a place to request a friend.
  • If you have already completed your registration you may email your request to
