$74 for a Five-Day Kids' Camp (Up to $149 Value)
During summer breaks, counselors keep kids aged 4–12 moving at day camps held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday–Friday. Activities include early-morning sessions of tennis and flag football and rounds of Capture the Flag, ice-skating, or baseball. Nature hikes and crafts provide a break from competition at mini-golf links and bowling lanes. Campers must provide their own lunch throughout the week.
Camp sessions are available weekly starting Monday, June 10; the last session of the summer begins Monday, August 12. Early drop-off (7 a.m.) and late pickup (6 p.m.) is available for an extra $20 per day for each child. There is no camp on Thursday, July 4.
