A comprehensive schedule is offered to introduce campers to a wide variety of sports while having fun and meeting new friends! The schedule provides the opportunity to participate in a different sport each week. Our Sports Unlimited Camp will allow your child to experience many different sports within one week.


Develop a greater passion for the things you love, or try out something new at one of our specialty camps! Specialty camps are for campers looking for a week-long camp where they are able to focus on activities in a specific area. At each of our specialty camps, day campers still enjoy the flavor of traditional camp activities sprinkled throughout each day, with opportunities to develop in their specialized activity.


Our Excursion Camps help young campers grow spiritually, mentally and physically in a positive environment. Campers participate in fun, adventure-filled weekly activities (both indoor and outdoor) that promote personal growth and encourage children and teens to make friends, acquire new skills, develop values and create memories that will last a lifetime.


Children enrolled in our Traditional Summer Day Camp will not want the summer to end! There’ll be plenty of time to make new friends, sing, play, explore, learn, and laugh–all under the watchful eyes of fully-trained staff. Fun for kids, peace of mind for you.
