Summer Quest Classes

The Summer Quest Camp model is a full day experience with both structured and unstructured activities for Grades K-6.  Summer Quest Camp will be offered for eight weeks and will be available for registration in two week segments.

Campers will enjoy arts & crafts, creative play on our playground,  cooling water activities (non-swimming), and exploring our 2-acre west campus complete with a soccer field, basketball court, wetlands, walking path with nature facts, amphitheater, raised gardens, and a covered pavilion with bathroom access. Each week of camp celebrates a different theme! 

Campers will be provided individual items (such as specific art supplies) marked with their name for their own use. Shared items will be wiped down between uses.
COVID-19 protocols will be in place to promote camper and counselor safety, including: wearing masks indoors, no field trips, social distancing, and maximum class sizes.
