Let the Fun Times Roll

Before You Come

Which camp should my child attend? And what grade will they be considered to be in this summer?

Our camps are broken up by age. Check out our Summer Camp page to see which session is right for your camper.

During the summer, campers are considered to be in the grade they are advancing to in the fall. So if a child has just finished 3rd grade, we’ll consider them a 4th grader at summer camp!
