Covid compliant, socially distant Summer camp is upon us! July 6th is the first day! There are 8 individual weeks available to choose from. We suggest booking sooner than later as these awesome programs tend to sell out!
We are so overjoyed to let the public know we are partnering with some amazing local organizations and individuals for sponsoring covid effected, frontline workers and under privileged families in the community for day camp experiences!! We are looking for families to contact us directly for distribution. We ask that applicants submit their inquiry to the Vice Chair of our Board of Directors Robin TeKamp at [email protected] to be considered. Should you know a family who might be interested, please respect their privacy and contact Robin via email and not publicly on any of our platforms.
Should you or anyone you know be interested in sponsoring or donating to any of the above mentioned, please also reach out to Robin on how to get involved.
