Summer Scholars Camps

Summer Scholars are specialty camps where boys and girls spend the majority of their week exploring a particular topic or activity. Our counselors lead hands-on activities for our campers to learn, play, and create every day — plus we include swimming, playground time, lunch, and a snack. These camps are set up in small groups (usually a maximum of 15 campers), so you’ll want to sign up early to ensure your child has a spot!

Each camp is for children entering the grades listed to the right of the title. Pre-K campers must be at least 3 years old and completely potty trained by the start of camp. All sessions are co-ed.

Below are all of our offerings listed by description.  You can see all our camps in order by date here.
